I am a mom of three who is passionate about volunteerism. I’ve always had a love of math and numbers and the details of how processes work. After earning a BBA and MS in accounting from A&M, I worked in accounting for a public company, then taught middle school math at Title 1 schools. Since that time, I have raised my kids who are now 5th, 7th, and 9th graders and have actively served in schools, nonprofits and church. I also enjoy music, travel, continuing to learn more about photography, and being on the creative team of a digital scrapbook store.
My whole life, I have been one who will raise my hand to volunteer to lead and organize groups. Since moving to College Station in 2015, I have served as President, Vice President, Treasurer and Fundraising Chair in PTOs at three schools; served in several roles in the citywide PTO; served on district committees; and attended Leadership CSISD.
I am currently the President of the citywide PTO and a member of the CSISD Education Foundation board. As I have served throughout the school district, I have been encouraged to find that we have a community that cares about education. I would be honored to serve this community on the school board and work to ensure that not only my children, but all of our children and those who will come after us, have a place to learn and develop the talents that make them unique.
