She currently serves as the Secretary for Jeffries Street Learning Center. Previously, Ms. Bell served on the Board of Urban Financial Services Coalition-Dallas Chapter (2004-2012).

She decided to join Turner 12’s Board of Directors because she has a passion for the youth (because they are our future) and there are so many who don’t get to reach their dreams and goals because they don’t have the knowledge, resources, and positive role models to assist them on their journey called Life. Serving on the Turner 12 board will allow her to use her knowledge, skills, and resources to help youth… 12 students at a time. When her time with Turner 12 comes to a close, she hopes her legacy will be continued by another caring adult (possibly a Turner 12 graduate) who has the passion to help the younger generation and willing to commit and provide resources to help them reach their dreams and goals.

Ms. Bell has two children, Natasha and Justin, and lives in Dallas, TX.
