Bliss Coulter

For the past ten years, Bliss Coulter has been helping to improve operations and drive company growth and sustainability in the non-profit sector. A Texas native, Bliss is a dynamic, achievement-driven executive dedicated to helping women advance in their careers.

She brings extensive leadership experience, with proven results, in organizational growth, strategic vision, program design, and implementation,
diversifying and expanding revenue streams as well as building collaborative partnerships.

Prior to joining the Women’s Business Council - Southwest, Bliss was the Chief Executive Officer for The Ladder Alliance, a non-profit that helps empower women and give them the tools to be self-sufficient and successful. In her first two years there,
she doubled the amount of operating cash, tripled the operating reserve, transformed the annual golf event, increasing new attendees by 80%, decreased expenses by 10%, as well as received the Best Place for Working Parents” award from the Fort Worth Mayor.

During this same time, she grew the fundraising budget by approximately 225%, making it the most successful fundraising period in the history of the agency. By placing substantial emphasis on capacity building, scalable and equitable community change, and broadening the existing funding portfolio, The Ladder Alliance has seen the largest growth, both programmatically and financially, in its 18- year history under Mrs. Coulter’s leadership.

Bliss is passionate about helping women advance and is excited to expand this opportunity to helping enhance business opportunities between women-owned businesses and corporations.

She received her Master’s from Texas Women’s University and her Bachelor’s from the University of North Texas. She is a licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Texas and a National Certified Counselor. She is also a member of the Fort Worth Rotary Club, Women Steering Business, and the Women’s Policy Forum.

When Bliss is not working, she enjoys spending time with her wife, Ashleigh, her son, Stetson, and her horses at their ranch.
