Even though her business credentials may imply that she’s a pro in the world of finance, Charmaine Tang is also an expert when it comes to understanding, sympathizing and working with newborns and their families.
Perhaps it’s because when her son, Tyler, was born prematurely nine years ago, the family went through the journey of preemie life-threatening health challenges. Tyler’s cousin, Olivia, arrived ahead of schedule, providing even greater involvement and awareness of the Tang family. Because of Tyler and Olivia, the Tans became “one of the nation’s top family teams, Team Tang-O” for the March of Dimes. Since Tyler’s birth, Team Tang-O has raised $150,000 for the March of Dimes.
Since Charmaine’s arrival in Dallas, the New York City native, who earned a Bachelor of Science cum laude from New York University’s Stern School of Business and served as an investment banking analyst for Morgan Stanley, has become “the co-owner of Kidville Dallas, which offers early childhood classes and program targeted toward newborns to six years old.”
She has even co-founded and co-chaired the Kids Against Hunger Council for the North Texas Food Bank.
All that experience, both personally and professionally, has led her to her new position as executive director of the March of Dimes Dallas Division.
According to March of Dimes Texas Chapter State Director Darcie Wells, “Charmaine not only brings great passion for the mission to her role as Executive Director, but also a keen business acumen as an entrepreneur and a former Wall Street analyst. As a former Dallas Division board member, she also brings a unique volunteer perspective to our team.”
