I’m from Richardson, Texas and graduated from J.J. Pearce High School. I was born in Lubbock, moved to Roswell, NM, and then Tulsa, OK, before we got to Richardson in 1969 when I was 7. My parents still live in that same house today!

Family Life:
I am married to my very best friend, David. We met at UT in 1980 and got married in 1983. Our kids are Kyle (28) and Emily (26). Kyle lives here in Austin and is a landscape architect. He is marrying a wonderful girl, Lee Ann, in May 2016. Emily is our world traveler who has lived in London, Nashville, and Los Angeles since graduation. She works in the tv/movie/music industry.

Work Life:
I am a retired elementary principal. I worked in Round Rock ISD for 31 years as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal. I currently serve as a hearing officer and interim principal for the district.

Biggest lesson learned through my iGnite experience:
The biggest lesson I’ve learned through my iGnite experience is that I’m not too old to try new moves!

Who inspires me most is:
My parents! They are both 78 and have always lived full, fun lives. They still look at each day as a gift and are rarely home when I call them. They’re just busy living and thinking of others!

In my free time I like to:
My free time has changed drastically in the last year since I retired. My days are still very full, but they are spent running errands for my busy family members, volunteering in various capacities, exercising, and getting enough sleep for the first time in my adult life. I am surprised to report that I haven’t had a single boring day!

I would describe myself with these three words:
Outgoing, loyal and passionate.
