Account Manager

Noelle Parsons

Noelle Parsons, M.A., serves as an Account Manager for SAM, working closely with three different associations. Prior to SAM, Noelle worked at the Texas Hospital Association (THA) for 8 years in a variety of roles with increasing responsibility. Most recently, she served as THA’s Manager of Corporate Relations, where she was responsible for building non-dues revenue for THA and its Family of Companies through sponsorships, exhibits, and advertising sales.

Noelle graduated summa cum laude from Trinity University with her bachelor’s degree in Human Communication and Ancient Mediterranean Studies (with a minor in theater for fun). In 2019, Noelle completed her master’s degree at the University of Texas in the Human Dimensions of Organizations, an executive graduate program focused on developing leadership skills to create lasting and effective change in organizations.

She is active in the Texas Society of Association Executives (TSAE) with experience serving on several of its committees as well as being named the winner of TSAE’s 2018 Young Professional Leadership Award. She was a member of the TSAE Toastmasters chapter from 2015–2020, though she loved public speaking long before that experience. In 2020, she was thrilled when she was asked to speak on her first panel at the TSAE Virtual Women’s Summit: A Multi-Generation Discussion of the Workplace.

Partners: Association of Fundraising Professionals – Greater Austin Chapter, Association of Fundraising Professionals – Greater Houston Chapter, Texas Hearing Aid Association
