BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Janee Eatmon - President
I am a Retail Buyer for sixteen gift shops and love the joy that a small gift can give to someone. My love of decorating and hosting parties gives me great joy and I am known for being the Christmas lady. My husband and I both love Christmas and have a tendency to go all out each year! We began our journey to Celina in 2010 after we purchased a plot of land to build our dream home near Celina High School. We lived in Carrollton, TX for 14 years, sold our home, and moved to Carter Ranch in 2013 while beginning to build the dream home. Our son is 27 and lives in the DFW area. We love the small town atmosphere, seeing the stars at night and have room to breathe. My personal goal is to connect to other women who love life, want to share joy, help the community and develop lasting friendships. Celina Ladies and Friends is the door to reaching my goal. Every person I meet is a blessing and leaves an impression on my life. Thank you for the opportunity to serve, grow and build friendships with dynamic women from around the Celina area.
Erica Northrup - Vice President, Sponsorship,
My family moved to Texas in July 2017 from Los Angeles, California. I am a mother to three great kids, two of whom are sixteen months apart, so they keep me on my toes. Moving to a new state with zero connections was scary, but I met Celina Ladies & Friends at the Friday Night Market and my world changed in a good way! I now not only know people but I am building friendships that matter. Besides this group and my family, I enjoy crafting, entertaining and sharing my traditions with new friends. I also love dogs and volunteer with a pit bull dog rescue in CA and a dog shelter in TX.

Hello, my name is Janet Reid, I have lived in Celina for 4 years now. I have been a part of Celina Ladies and Friends for a couple of years and decided to become more involved. I am now the Secretary for the Board and look forward to the next year.
I love hiking and traveling. I recently traveled to Cap Rock State Park where a herd of about 200 Bison roam free!
I have been a part of many non-profit organizations since I moved back to Texas in 2001.
Kay Willard - Treasurer

Heather Wheeler - Membership Director
My husband and I moved to Prosper, TX in September of last year. My husband worked for Toyota Financial Services in Torrance, California where we had lived for 27 years. When he was asked to move, we, as empty nesters, with our two sons grown and married with one granddaughter, decided to make the move. I retired from Raytheon after 32 years and off to Texas we went. Celina Ladies and Friends welcomed me with open arms and I am so grateful. I look forward to working on the board with all of the lovely ladies, and plan to work hard to grow the organization with more outstanding women. Together we will give back to this wonderful community.
Delia Isaac- Social Media Director
For my day job I do crisis work helping people who struggle with mental health concerns. In order to further my ability to help others I am pursuing a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy. In between working, school and Celina Ladies & Friends (CLF) I enjoy movies, crafting with fabric, reading as well as spending time with my husband and our critters. I used to live in Kentucky before I came to Celina in November 2017 and while I miss my mountains, I have found a most magnificent sky for which I am incredibly thankful. I got involved with CLF March 2018 through an evening playing Pokeno. This group is near and dear to my heart as they have helped me to blossom. Finding friends and building a support group is so important for us as humans but doing so can be very difficult as an adult. CLF helped make that easier for me. I hope to continue this legacy and make it easier for other ladies as well.
Sherri Williams- Community Relations Director
I grew up in San Antonio, and moved to the Dallas area to attend UNT in the late 80’s. We learned about Celina, about a year after building our home in McKinney, and dreamed of moving since then. It took us eleven years, but we were able to finally move last May. I’ve been married to John for 27 years. We are a blended family. We have 4 grown children, and 4 grandchildren. Our youngest two still live at home, and are in college, and pilot school. I own a merchant service company named after our founder, and my father dabow. I love Celina, I’m already very involved in the community, but look forward to serving the community in greater ways as the community relations director this year.
