TXWSW salutes its all-volunteer staff of women who are leaders in their field and make the time to contribute to our collective success. They lead by example and are generous with their time and resources in helping others. They are truly Limitless Leaders.
Please join us in recognizing Kristen Cobb, a Limitless Leader. We are grateful for all that she does!

Why did you choose to become a volunteer?
When I first joined Texas Wall Street Women I was looking for an organization to help expand my network. I was looking for something I could get as much out of as I put in. It was recommended to me by a co-worker after I tried other organizations and found them to be too time consuming, too expensive or felt I wasn’t making meaningful connections. I was immediately impressed by the caliber of women within Texas Wall Street Women. I have continued to volunteer over the last decade because of the incredible connections I have made across the state and industry.
How have networking groups like Texas Wall Street Women helped your career?
For me, the mentorship has been invaluable. This is a group of women I have leaned on for advice, support and leadership through different stages of my career and development. Whether it is women in the C-Suite or students from the Young Women’s Preparatory Network, I continue to grow from this group of women.
What is your current favorite book or podcast regarding personal growth, female empowerment, and or career advice?
NPR’s How I Built This podcast. I love hearing from entrepreneurs on how they started their businesses and their stories of perseverance.Texas Wall Street Women is a non-profit networking group that supports its members in their career growth by offering valuable networking and educational opportunities. We also give back to our community through our partnership with the Young Women’s Preparatory Network that provides college preparatory education to underserved girls across Texas. We provide our entire programming with an all-volunteer staff who all have successful finance careers and still have time to volunteer to help other women achieve their goals.
