I am originally from Austin, TX but I grew up in Dayton, OH and I moved to Pearland in 2006.

Physical fitness and a healthy active lifestyle are very important to me. I enjoy HIIT, yoga, kickboxing and trail running.

I enjoy visiting local farmer's markets and cooking healthy meals for friends and family.

I have 3 rescue dogs and have been a volunteer with Pearland Pets for the last 3 years. I enjoy hosting the Silent Auction and Wine Pull at the annual Killen's Steakhouse charity event - Wags 2 Riches Gala & Casino Night.

I enjoy uplifting & motivating others. I'm always open to new volunteer opportunities and enjoy running in 5ks for a cause.

Community Participation

I volunteer with Pearland's local rescue shelter in holding an annual charity event at Killen's Steakhouse, at the annual Casino Night & Gala. My husband and I enjoy hosting the silent auction to raise funds for the shelter. Last year we raised over $45,000 to outfit an emergency medical center and mobile adoption trailer for the local veterinarian clinic. In an ongoing effort the last Wednesday of every month Killen's hosts an adoption benefit with happy hour sales going to benefit the shelter.
