Where did you grow up?
I was born in Garland, Texas and moved to Ovilla, Texas when I was five. I completed all 12 years of school at Red Oak ISD.
Describe your family.
I am an only child. My mom and dad just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on November 27th! I have been married to Jack for 20 years. He was a professional and collegiate baseball coach and is now a professional baseball agent who travels a lot! We have two daughters that are 10 years apart. Shea is a freshman at OU that aspires to be a doctor. Ellis is in 3rd grade here at Norton. She is a level 3 gymnast who loves to read and draw daily.
What university did you attend?
I graduated from Texas A&M University, 1991
What are your favorite activities?
My favorite thing to do is cycle outside or attend a great yoga or Pilates class! I enjoy helping others and have been a personal trainer for 33 years. I also love a good book and hanging out with Ellis.
If you had $1000 to spend on anything, what would you spend it on?
If I had $1000 to spend on anything I would give half of it to my church and the other half I would buy tickets to the Justin Bieber concert on April 10 for my friends and family J
What is your favorite reality TV show?
I don’t watch TV much, but I do like Property Brothers or any HGTV shows.
If you were not a teacher, what would you be?
If I weren’t a teacher I would be a counselor...or maybe independently wealthy and just hang out in a Pilates/yoga studio everyday!
