Cindy is an entrepreneur, digital pioneer and nature lover.  Sunday afternoon walks in the woods with her Dad are one of Cindy’s happiest childhood memories.  Searching for frogs and minnows in the creek and cutting honeysuckle for her Mother brought her joy.  Cindy loved being around animals and had hundreds of pets including the typical; dogs, cats, fish and birds as well as the atypical; chickens, ducks, turtles, lizards, a billy goat, an opossum, and cared for many injured wild animals.  Presently, Cindy and her husband, Cliff, are land stewards of native Alabama woodlands that surround a tributary to the Coosa River.  Being surrounded by nature has ignited Cindy’s interest in protecting forests, streams and river habitats.

In addition to serving on the board of Black Warrior Riverkeeper, Cindy is a second term Trustee of The Nature Conservancy, Alabama Chapter, a former board member of the Cahaba River Society and a member of Birmingham’s Downtown Rotary.  Cindy is a registered water tester with the Alabama Water Watch.  Cindy has launched an effort to increase global awareness of the benefits of free-flowing rivers called Let Rivers Flow (letriversflow.com).  Formerly, Cindy was President of Alabama Media Group, including The Birmingham News, The Huntsville Times and Mobile’s Press Register, Birmingham Magazine and was founder/CEO of AL.com.  Cindy earned a B.S. In Mechanical Engineering and an MBA from the University of Alabama.  Cindy is a native of Bessemer and lives in Birmingham with her husband Cliff and her two cats, Grey and Blue.
