why I believe
I stand in support with this Center in honor of my wife Nancy, who underwent treatment at Banner in her courageous battle with breast cancer. In those three years of supporting her, I witnessed the faces of thousands of women who shone the light of hope in their own journeys to someday ring the Freedom Bell. The staff and administration at Banner are world class who make every individual patient feel special and well tended to in their treatment. I will support their mission for the healing love that they create and for contributing to the saving of precious lives. I will support them in memory of my wife, Nancy Duncan.

American Cowgirls Inc. is excited and honored to announce that Renee Gibison is joining our Tier 1 Leadership Team as our new Chief Design Officer (CDO). Renee’s relevant experience is diverse and extensive having first begun her graphics design career hand-lettering and airbrushing yachts, motorcycles, and race cars in Washington State. This progressed into the use of digital arts where Renee became fluent in the use of all major graphics software programs. Her design talent is an extension of her passion for photography where her focus is on naturescapes and wildlife. After relocating to Arizona in 1998, Renee worked with two graphics design companies before venturing out to start her own business. As the former owner and operator of Vehicle Tattooing LLC, she made a name for herself as one of the few women-owned graphics companies. She did everything from logo designs and websites to printing and installing custom graphics on emergency vehicles, buses, semi-trailers, cars, motorcycles, buildings and just about anything that would benefit from a unique design or a custom wrap such as cranial remolding helmets for children. Among her favorite activities are hiking, photography and fine art with pastels. Renee lives an active lifestyle that compliments her leadership role with American Cowgirls. While in Washington State she was the proud owner of an Arabian show horse, Sienna’s Silk Rose, and has always felt most comfortable around animals of all kinds. Her father did rodeo as a young man and perhaps some of that dirt rubbed off on her! She lives with her husband, Fred, and their two rescue German Shepherds Savana and Beren where they all enjoy Arizona’s almost year-round outdoor living. Renee’s past work experience coupled with her artistry are invaluable assets to the Corporation in rolling out Phase 3 of our business plan and developing our product line displays. Renee is empowered to lead all current and future design requirements by working directly with our manufacturing suppliers on our product line designs and packaging, raw material and substrate specifications and retail display units. She will also be responsible for all computer and printer system acquisitions and will establish the onboarding of her design team at the appropriate time. Renee fully endorses our Corporate Mission that everything we produce will be made in America. She is already applying her creativity and design skills to re-imagine our Corporate brand identifiers. This will quickly expand into modernizing our website and information systems. Renee will report directly to the CEO and work closely with all members of our Leadership Team to bring to life the Vision of what American Cowgirls represents. Please join me in welcoming our CDO, Renee Gibison, to our Corporate Leadership Team.
