Executive Board


Dina Proto
President

CEO/Owner, Teazled Greeting Cards

After spending most of the last 20 years in the healthcare field, primarily as a hospice nurse and emergency room nurse, Dina co-founded Teazled Greeting Cards with her wife Dom. Teazled, a greeting card company whose niche market is traditional greeting cards for non-traditional families, is rooted in the desire to provide traditional greeting cards for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community who have spent years unable to purchase cards that mirrored images and verbiage appropriate to those within the community, their families and friends.

Understanding the benefit of the supplier diversity initiative, Dina sought certification through the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.  After realizing, first hand, the direct impact certification had on the ability to grow Teazled Greeting Cards, Dina sought to provide education and outreach to other LGBT business enterprises, allies and corporate partners. That outreach came in the form of the Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Nevada (GLCCNV). As founder and President of GLCCNV, Dina is committed to serving Nevada business community on both a local and global level, assisting other businesses to experience the same growth opportunities that Teazled has been afforded.

When not sitting at the helm of Teazled or growing awareness for GLCCNV, Dina can still be found practicing the art of nursing. Dina’s favorite time is spent reading with and cooking for her loving and supportive wife Dom, their four children Nikki, JT, Eme and Anthony and her Dad.
