After 30 years of outstanding service as a leader for Concerned Women for America (CWA), with the last 17 years serving as CWA of Texas State Director, Ann Hettinger is retiring. Words cannot express the love and appreciation we have for Ann. Personally speaking, Ann has been a mentor in the faith and in my own leadership growth within CWA. We are grateful that Ann will continue to serve in an advisory role and wear the title of State Director Emerita.

I am very pleased to introduce to you Jana Long, who will be stepping into the role of CWA’s new Texas State Director. Jana joined the CWA of Texas leadership team in 2021 as a Prayer/Action Chapter Leader and, with a core group of women, started the Prayer/Action Chapter in Dallas.

Jana was born, raised, and continues to live in Dallas with her husband of 41 years, Larry. She has a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Texas at Arlington and spent 20 years in commercial real estate in the areas of development, accounting, and property management. Jana co-founded a wellness business, Ultimate Health Matters, where she developed wellness programs for small to mid-size businesses and their locations around Texas and other surrounding states. After 15 years in the health and wellness industry, Jana joined Larry in their interim lending business.    

A word from Jana:

“I am grateful for the mentorship of Ann Hettinger and all she has done to move the needle in Texas on the issues of life, family, religious freedom, and so much more. It’s a privilege to follow in her footsteps. I love the grassroots efforts of CWA and am excited to move into the State Director role to influence and impact important policy issues and to grow CWA’s Prayer/Action Chapter presence across the big state of Texas.”
