Did you Know?

Marijke’s favorite Downtown destination is CityLights at Main Street Garden, during the holiday season. It’s beautiful!

Marijke is passionate about Downtown because the Downtown is full of vibrancy wherever you look.

Marijke’s favorite Downtown memory is taking my girls on a tour of the Arts District. We began our day by going up to my office where we had a perfect view of where we were to tour. It was a beautiful day. We enjoyed lunch in the plaza and our afternoon at the Dallas Museum of Art. To wrap up the day, we stopped by the Cathedral and it was truly inspiring seeing such a beautiful church.

Marijke supports Downtown Dallas, Inc. because it is exciting to be part of an organization that has such impact. I look forward to working together with the Board to make changes that will bring more of a sense of community to our great City.
