Meet the Board Members
President: Laurie Johnson
Laurie and Chuck Johnson bought their first home in Spring Creek in 1985. They had been living in Richardson and had not been able to find the right neighborhood as they searched for a house. Their realtor suggested they cross Coit and look at a neighborhood called Spring Creek with a wonderful neighborhood school. They found the perfect house and fell in love with the big trees and yards. The next year their oldest child started Kindergarten at Spring Creek Elementary and Mrs. Shepard and the school were everything they had hoped for!
Laurie and Chuck have four children who all attended Spring Creek Elementary, Westwood Jr. High and Richardson High School. Laurie was always very active in supporting her kids’ activities including athletics, choir and Boy Scouts, and serving in the PTA and booster clubs.
Laurie is a native Texan and loves spending time with her family, taking walks in the neighborhood, visiting her grandson, exploring National Parks with her husband, reading and playing with her golden retriever.
As a long time member of the Spring Creek Civic Organization, she is excited to serve her neighborhood as president this year and to work with the Board to maintain the great community spirit.

I love the sense of community in such a busy city. I love the mature trees and the way the lawns are so well maintained. My kids feel safe and happy with our friends and neighbors and It will just be special to grow up here.
4th VP Social: Gregg & Alison Thorsen
Spring & Fall General Meetings, Egg Hunt
Gregg and Alison have lived in the Spring Creek neighborhood since 1994. Both are graduates of Brigham Young University. Alison studied special education, and Gregg accounting. Gregg grew up in Rockwall, Texas, and wanted to return home to pursue a law degree at UT. He obtained a JD in 1993. The family, including two young boys, moved to Dallas when Gregg was offered a job with Carrington, Coleman, Sloman and Blumenthal, L.L.P. In 2001 Gregg accepted an in-house counsel position with Southwest Airlines. He currently works for SWA in benefits and labor negotiations. Gregg and Alison were fortunate to buy their first home in Spring Creek. The street turned out to be free from busy traffic and allowed their kids to play outside with neighbor kids. Friendships were formed which continue to the present.
The Thorsens love the Spring Creek Civic Organization because it provides opportunities to 1) volunteer as an individual, such as a block captain, 2) experience the synergism of working with neighbors on a large event, and 3) connect with neighbors, as on National Neighborhood Night Out. When the Thorsen kids started becoming teenagers, Gregg and Alison looked for a larger home. Fortunately, they found a home in Spring Creek which matched their family size perfectly. They couldn’t think of a better place to finish raising their kids, adding up to six. Currently only one son lives at home; David is a junior at Richardson High School.
5th VP Communications: Krystal Hurst
Webmaster, Social Media
Krystal Hurst was raised on the eastside of Richardson and graduated in 2001 from Berkner High School. After attending Oklahoma State University for two years, she quickly found her way back to Texas where she married her husband, Tim, and went on to graduate from the University of North Texas with a degree in Elementary Education. It was her three years teaching fourth grade at Spring Creek Elementary that helped her fall in love with the neighborhood and when the time came to look for a bigger home to accommodate their young boys, she and Tim knew Spring Creek is where they wanted to be! They've now been in the neighborhood since 2017 and have loved watching their (now) four boys - Mark (9), Zach (7), Nathan (5), and Jacob (2) - become a part of the neighborhood! When not up at SCE volunteering with PTA, watching soccer practice, or helping with Cub Scouts, Krystal owns and runs two local parenting resources (DallasMoms.com & CollinCountyMoms.com). Tim is a Management Consultant at Pariveda Solutions.

The Nobles family moved to Spring Creek in 1997. My husband Kevin and I have raised our children here and love the neighborhood. Our children both went through Spring Creek Elementary, Westwood Junior High and Richardson High School. Our daughter, Sydney, is currently in medical school at Texas A&M in College Station and our son, Jeremy, lives in Houston and is about to get married this October. Kevin and I love to travel, hike and watch sports. We are currently both working from home due to the pandemic so most days you can see us walking our dog Hunter who is a Labrador mix around the neighborhood.
