Mrs. R.S. Premack, Office Manager

Mrs. Premack earned her BA in Organizational Communication and Business Management from the University of Texas at Austin in 1981. Prior to working in her current role (since 1983) as Office Manager at The Premack Law Office, she worked as Personnel Director for a major US retailer. She has been happily married to Paul Premack since 1981, and is the mother of Tiffany Premack (BS, State University of New York at Albany, 2007) and Benjamin Premack (BA & BS, Northeastern University, MIA and JD, Pennsylvania State University, 2013). 

In October 1990, Mrs. Premack received the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation award from the U.S. House of Representative and the George H. W. Bush White House for her leadership in bringing Curbside Recycling Pickup to San Antonio. She started her recycling journey in the early 1980’s while managing this law firm and raising two children. Her recycling efforts in the home and office inspired a vision of city-wide recycling. She formed a group called Citizens for Curbside Recycling Pickup and through five years of constant
cooperative effort with businesses and private citizens, convinced the city council to implement voluntary city-wide curbside recycling pickup. Now, San Antonio has the largest voluntary curbside recycling program in Texas. Other awards she received: the George Washington Honor Medal from the Freedoms Foundation of Valley Forge; the first NCJW Community Service Award, and San Antonio “Light” Newspaper’s Sunday Woman honor.

Mrs. Premack, initiated our participation in programs that have planted thousands of trees in the U.S. and Mexico. Currently, the office buys trees in honor of our clients through the Program called: Forests For Monarchs (http://www.forestsformonarchs.org). In the past we have donated with Audubon, with The La Cruz Habitat Protection Project, with the American Forests and with other non-profit tree planting organizations.

After visiting the McDonald Observatory, Mrs. Premack became aware of the problem of light pollution. She became the local coordinator for the International Dark Sky Association (www.darksky.org) , and after years of cooperative effort with Pete Gallegos and concerned citizens, helped pass the Texas Dark Sky law. She also led the law office to sponsor a Dark Sky educational initiative at the McDonald Observatory (see "Our Community Initiatives"). Today many more stars are visible in the cities, and the picture improves yearly.

An early adapter of energy efficient technologies, Mrs. Premack converted the family car to electric power in the early 1990’s, a first for a full size fully electric car with electric seats, electric windows, electric air conditioning and air bags. She encouraged the family to adopt Toyota’s first generation Prius, and since 2012 drives a fully electric Nissan Leaf (which has everything except the electric seats). We are on the waiting list for the Model 3 TESLA.

Mrs. Premack volunteer taught for the wonderful program called “Junior Achievement”. Although no longer teaching, her favorite classes to teach to middle schoolers were “Personal Economics” and “Enterprise In Action”.

Mrs. Premack is an award-winning visual artist. Her work is on display in a variety of locations around the United States and has been in Galleries in New York, Nebraska, Colorado and Osaka, Japan.  To visit the online museum of her art, click here.
