I was born in Corpus Christi, and this is my third time back to Austin – once in college, then again 1994-1997, and now since 2002.
My great significant other is Ford McTee, and we have three kids, a wonderful son-in-law and a precious granddaughter: Taylor, Rob and Zella, Cliff and Blake.
My current occupation is being a grandmother – after wife, mom, sister, aunt, daughter, mother-in-law, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law and niece.
Biggest lesson learned through iGnite experience:
Through iGnite I have learned that life is so great. Enjoy every moment, stay healthy, lean on others and be there for others.
Best advice given and from who:
I am sure that my grandmother gave me the best advice. She was 101 when she died a few years ago. I can’t think of anything specific that she said, but she always said the most wonderful things. She would also be who inspired me the most. She was truly an amazing person that immigrated here from Italy when she was 9 years old.
I am looking forward to:
Other than looking forward to daily events, I most look forward to going to heaven and seeing everyone that I love there!
My favorite color is:
Yellow. It is so bright!
