A native Texan, I was born in San Antonio, raised in Central Texas, and married in Lewisville. Shortly after the birth of my son in Grapevine, my family moved to Plano, Texas.
There is so much to love about our world, and I want to be on the ground, with my sleeves rolled up, helping to keep our world beautiful and vibrant. I want to help our world be the best possible version of itself–a world in which all its citizens, from the elderly, to the young; the religious to non-religious; the immigrants and minorities—proudly call home.
I’ve spent the last fifteen years in the construction industry, working with developers, architects, contractors, and even cities to build various projects that benefit and enhance communities. I’ve worked on projects that were added to the National Register of Historic Places, and I understand what goes into preserving our community treasures as well as how new development impacts existing infrastructure and the environment. I’ve served on non-profit boards, volunteered for charitable organizations, and been part of executive steering committees.
While I’ve never held a political office, I’m a firm believer that government should always be, as Abraham Lincoln put it, …of the people, by the people and for the people. As citizens, we should all feel empowered to add our voices to the government. Not everyone comes from politics, but everyone should have an opportunity to add their voice to the conversation.
