Jean Bryan Magnificent Marketer Award - Natalie Parish Natalie Parish, the director of business and marketing for Weatherford Regional Medical Center, loves her community. She has been in marketing since graduating in 2002. Natalie grew up in Azle and has been in the Brock area for 14 years. For the last two years, she has worked at the hospital where she is dedicated to “communicating the message of all the exciting things that are going on at the hospital and the physicians in our community.” “I love the community that I live in and I think as a working mom or a family member, a lot of times people don’t know where to go regarding health care or they’re scared,” Parish said. “I enjoy getting that information out so that people can make the most informed decision for their families. I see myself as a resource for them.” When asked for advice for anyone following in her footsteps Natalie said, “Always focus on the why.” Besides her work for the hospital, Natalie is also involved in various boards and organizations, a few of which include: Salvation Army, Meals on Wheels, Weatherford Rotary Club and The East Parker County Women’s Business Alliance.

He’s currently the public relations manager for the City of Weatherford. He considers this to be one of his biggest accomplishments, considering the position had been vacant for several years; he has taken over and created a solid communications program for the city. Growing up, Blake never told anyone he wanted to be a city spokesman when he grew up.
 In high school, Blake wanted to be a sports TV anchor, but after doing that for several years in college, it soon lost its luster for him. He realized it wasn’t his passion.
