I grew up on a Midwest cattle farm with a younger sister. After a college degree in Community Recreation, I found myself living in Japan and Mexico. Once relocating to San Antonio in 1998, I worked for a Marriott retirement community and a Carlson-Vagonlit government travel agency. Being a stay-at-home mom of 2 daughters, now 10th and 12th grades, came next. After divorce in 2009, I returned to school to earn a master’s in teaching and enter the field of education. Some of my interests are volunteering for environmental causes, travel, theater/art/concerts, reading, and working out.
