The Team

Christiana Mouser

Christiana Mouser, RNExecutive Director, Program Care Coordinator

Christiana grew up in Houston, Texas and moved to Dallas shortly after graduating from Baylor University with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. She worked for several years in corporate America for a contractor safety management software company. In 2015, Christiana decided to pursue her true passion and went back to school at Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing to get her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.

Prior to joining Carrell Care Community Partners, Christiana was an RN Coordinator for the Ambulatory Care Clinic at Scottish Rite for Children. Before that, she was a registered nurse for the Surgical Oncology Unit at Baylor University Medical Center.

Christiana is thrilled to work for the Carrell Care Community Partners as she feels it is such a rewarding role- a role in which she plays an active part in helping a young person's life change for the better. One of the best parts of her role is being the one who informs a candidate that they have been accepted to the Carrell Care program and hearing their hope and joy in their enthusiastic reactions. When she is not actively engaged with Carrell Care, she enjoys spending time with her husband, David, and their three young children.

In her role, she will continue to cultivate partnerships, create events and sponsorships and expand Carrell Care operations- statewide and beyond. She is currently in development on two new program models for Carrell Care that will complete the “Carrell Care-Circle of Care” Program- so that Carrell Care not only gives a literal “leg up” to recipients but a figurative leg up as well. These new program pillars will create workforce development and higher education programs that rounds out our Circle of Care model-ensuring that our young recipients are able to achieve resilience, independence and a better future via our collaborative “Coroporate Cares-Community Partners Action Lab”.
