Attorney, author, morning DJ - Roxanne Wilson has it going on!
Meet Roxanne Wilson - attorney, morning show deejay, Jazzercise instructor, author, and community volunteer. The 30-year old Austin hot-shot has a story and message to share with young professionals everywhere.
Upon graduating from the University of Michigan Law School, Wilson moved to Austin to practice at Winstead PC. One of Wilson’s many volunteer activities was involvement in the Baylor Alumni Association. Through the association, Wilson found an unusual opportunity to try-out for the hit reality television show, "The Apprentice."
Putting her law practice on hold, Roxanne had a three-month experience like no other! As America watched, Wilson waited a long time for “The Donald” to tell her, “You’re fired.” Quite successful on the show, she was a final four contestant.
Taking a leap of faith, so to speak, Wilson authored the book, Footprints in the Boardroom. A strong Christian, Wilson believes that maintaining Christian values while pursuing a successful business career is obtainable. Wilson is committed to spreading this message to young professionals through her book and toolkits.
Wilson is now the host of “Family Friendly Mornings” on Austin radio station 102.3, The River. While her career demands most of her time, Wilson remains committed to giving back. She serves on the Public Relations Committee for the Junior League of Austin – A Christmas Affair; volunteers for the Make-A-Wish, is active in the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, and devoted to her church.
