Member Spotlight
Doreen Fisher
 
Doreen Fisher was born and raised in Houston, TX, graduating from Westfield High School in Spring, TX, where she played varsity basketball. She attended Texas A&M University where she majored in Industrial Engineering. Doreen married Kevin Fisher in 1988 and they will celebrate 34 years of marriage next month.
 
Doreen’s career was in the electronics industry and included employment with Motorola, Dell Computer, and two contract manufacturing firms. Her career took her out of the country frequently on business trips, and she holds a US patent for electrical circuit design.
 
Doreen took an early retirement to finish raising their three children; two daughters and one son. They have two grandchildren, Henry and Harper Ham, who live in Shiner.
 
Doreen has been a member of several local non-profits, including the Comal County A&M Mothers Club, New Braunfels Noon Lions, Mid-Texas Symphony Guild, Braunfels Foundation Trust, New Braunfels All Sports Boosters, New Braunfels Downtown Association, and the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce. She has also volunteered with other organizations, including Comal County Habitat for Humanity, New Braunfels Food Bank, New Braunfels Jaycees, Communities in Schools, Pink Warrior Advocates, and SJRC of Texas.
 
She is a past Debutante Chairman for the Mid-Texas Symphony, and past president of the Comal County A&M Mothers Club. She currently serves as a board member for the New Braunfels Noon Lions Club. She has also coached youth basketball and served as a youth Sunday School teacher.
 
Joining Rotary one year ago, Doreen currently serves as the merchandise coordinator for the Hill Country Craft Beer Festival, is serving on the committee to revise the club’s scholarship policies, and serves in the Youth Lane as the Interact Coordinator. Her favorite Rotary volunteer shift so far has been serving as cashier at the potato pancake booth.
 
When she’s not selling kartoffelpuffer, Doreen enjoys the vibrant New Braunfels downtown scene, including live music, tubing, sports, walking her dogs, and drinking cocktails and beer. White Claw and scotch aren’t on her drink menu.
