About the Publisher
Dallas McGlinn, MA, MSW, LMSW, was born and raised in New Orleans. She is the founder of this site and the Publisher of Gathering Magazine. Dallas has always been interested in community issues and changed careers in mid life to become a Social Worker. Dallas firmly believes that it is never too late to follow your dreams!
With two Master’s Degrees (Sociology and Social Work), Dallas has studied community issues in depth. She has many years of experience serving in the community in various capacities, including volunteer leadership, community organization, business/nonprofit startups, and creating and managing community outreach events.
Dallas has always enjoyed working with people – especially helping others to find their gifts so that they can find joy and fulfillment in serving others.
Dallas enjoys writing and photography, and she has photographed many outreach events (which you can find on her Facebook page), from Galas to Christmas meals and school supply giveaways.
Currently Dallas is busy serving on boards, doing social work, and writing a memoir. Dallas has a long list of nonprofits that she wants to write about, so that others will be informed and encouraged to either support those nonprofits or to start their own. Look for some articles to be coming soon.
Gathering Magazine has had the support of many volunteers over the years. If you are interested in contributing your time, gifts and talents to Gathering Magazine, and if you have a similar vision for the awesome things that we can do to make our community a better place, contact us.
