Roots:
I am from Corpus Christi, Texas and have lived in Austin twice! The first time while at UT, then moved away but came back and have been here 21 years.

Family Life:
I have been married to Paul for 25 years, and we have two kids. Jared is 22 and a senior at Austin College majoring in Business and Economics. Anne Marie is 20 and a sophomore at Texas State majoring in Communications.

Current Occupation:
I work part time for Central Texas Orthopedic Products. It is a medical device company Paul and I started 21 years ago and we distribute hip, knee and shoulder implants to hospitals.

The biggest lesson I’ve learned from my iGnite experience…
The biggest lesson I have learned through iGnite is that we are all striving for the same things in life. Being happy, staying healthy and trying to balance it all. What a great group of women from diverse backgrounds to support one another through the challenges in life.

The best advice I’ve even gotten…
The best advice I have been given was from my mother. She always said to be yourself, be happy with who you are and don’t compare yourself to others.

Something people may not know about me…
I enjoy hunting and fishing. Growing up with just girls in my family, my dad always took us hunting and fishing with him so it was something I grew up doing.

My guilty pleasure…
I love to bake so my guilty pleasure is eating chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven.
