Joette CampbellChief Development Officer
Chief Development Officer
Joette joined FSS full-time in 2005 after several years as the agency’s marketing/PR consultant. Her 40+ year professional career includes sports journalism, advertising/PR, and human resources. Somehow, this diverse career path led to her current position that includes fundraising, event coordination, and marketing. “What we do matters,” she said. “I am passionate about our mission and those we serve and know that what I am doing makes a difference.”
A proud graduate of the University of Texas, Joette began her professional career as one of the first women in Texas to write sports. She worked for the Austin American-Statesman and Associated Press in Dallas, then switched to sports marketing with the Houston Aeros of the World Hockey Association.
The move to Amarillo in 1978 was a culture shock for someone who had never seen a horse up close and had seen snow only twice. More shocking was a switch to corporate marketing, public relations, and human resources with several Amarillo advertising agencies. She eventually owned her own successful agency, and began a relationship with FSS that led to her current position.
At FSS, she is best known for the Harley Party and the Mardi Gras Party. “These events are possible only through exceptional teamwork . . . and I love being the coach!”
Joette is a sports fanatic, and her favorite teams besides FSS are the Texas Longhorns, Butler Bulldogs, Houston Texans, and San Antonio Spurs . . . Her other great passion is for her three children and crazy calico cat Cleo. “It’s all about family, and that’s what I love most about FSS.”
