I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business with a B.B.A. in Finance with a minor in management and additional coursework concentration in accounting and international business.
The study of economics in particular - as well as more generally what makes certain societies wealthy while others wallow in poverty - is one of my biggest passions, and I consider myself fortunate to have the opportunity to teach this subject to the excellent students at Fort Bend Dulles High School.
Prior to joining the education profession, I was a production manager, editorial page editor, and award-winning editorial writer for semi-weekly and weekly community newspaper publications long owned by my family until they were successfully sold to a larger newspaper chain in 2009. Prior to their sale in 2009, I won two awards for achievements in editorial writing from the South Texas Press Association (in a competition judged by the South Carolina Press Association.)
I was also awarded the 2015 Texas Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association District 23-6A Girls Coach of the Meet.
Currently, I am serving in my fourth two-year term as an elected Harris County Precinct Chairman and serve as an election judge in Harris County. I was also elected by Texas Senate District 13 to serve on the countywide Training & Development Committee as well as to serve as a delegate to the state convention of one of the two major political parties.
