Christopher Adams

Chief Financial Officer

Meet Chris

Chris joined Any Baby Can in January of 2015 and has loved every day since. A native of Houston, Chris moved to Austin in 1998 to attend the University of Texas at Austin and simply never left. Like many Austinites, Chris loves tacos, Barton Springs, complaining about the traffic, and bemoans the gentrification of the east side. Before Any Baby Can, Chris spent 13 years working (and bleeding burnt orange) at the big university downtown overseeing financial affairs, grant administration, business operations, and information technology for various world-class academic departments.

Michele Scherz

Chief Development Officer

Meet Michele

Michele joined Any Baby Can in March 2017. As a proud mom to two daughters who attend Pease Elementary in AISD and a resident of East Austin, Michele is excited to be a part of Any Baby Can’s mission to serve Central Texas families. Michele brings nearly 20 years of experience in fundraising and resource development in the fields of political fundraising, higher education and non-profit. A native of Arkansas, Michele enjoyed some time in Washington D.C. and New York prior to her move to Austin in 2003. Austin is home now, especially given her (mild) addiction to breakfast tacos.
