I’m originally from Lake Charles, Louisiana. I moved to Austin last Halloween!
No significant other; no kids. My parents live in Lake Charles, and my siblings are scattered in TX and LA. I have two brothers (twins!) and a sister (who actually moved to Pflugerville just a couple of months before I did)!
I’m the Creative Director (which is just fancy talk for “I do the graphic work”) for a small science education company called Scientific Minds. I also do freelance graphic design projects when I’ve got the time!
Biggest lesson learned through my iGnite experience:
I am stronger than I think I am, and every week I am surrounded by some pretty incredible and encouraging women who help me realize this.
Best piece of advice and from who:
I’m super close with my family, so a lot of advice I pay attention to comes from them.
“In life, find balance.” – Dad
“In all things, find happiness.” – Mom
I am looking forward to:
In September I’m making my first trip (EVER!) to Europe! I’ve been dreaming about this for years, and I’m practically bouncing out of my skin Im’ so excited to make this happen.
If I were a pair of shoes I would be:
Chucks — they’re nothing flashy. They come in a jillion colors, but they’re just a no-nonsense, classic pair of sneakers. They’re my favorite pair of shoes.
My guilty pleasure is:
Watching The Bachelor/Bachelorette….I’m such a sucker. It’s not even good TV, but I CAN’T STOP!
