I came to College Station from Orange Grove, Texas in 1986 to attend A&M University. I graduated and moved to Austin for several years, returning to the area in 2009. I am married and have two children as well as one spoiled dog Johnny (named for Johnny football). I own my own company designing and installing rainwater systems located here in College Station. In addition to serving on the board for Keep Brazos Beautiful, I am a founding member for the Wienerspiel board. I am very passionate about the environment, conserving rainwater and educating the community about these issues.
I am proud to be a member of Keep Brazos Beautiful. I have seen many changes come to our community in my 36 years here. The importance of how big an impact we make on our environment is a growing concern for me. KBB has so many avenues of support and teaching for our community and I am proud to be involved with it. It is important to help educate and assist our community in the involvement we each have to do our part for conservation and environment. I believe if you plant a seed, it will grow, be it a real tree or a seed within us.
I’m on the KBB board because I believe a greener and cleaner community adds to our quality of life here in the Brazos County. KBB promotes these goals through education and outreach.

The reason for me becoming a member of Keep Brazos Beautiful, came after being honored at your 2017 Awards Luncheon Ceremony. I was then asked if I would consider becoming a Keep Brazos Beautiful board member, I accepted. One of the greatest things in life we can do is to give. This giving can be done through volunteering in our community, church or just helping through different organizations. I saw in Keep Brazos Beautiful, a bunch of beautiful professionals volunteering their efforts and taking time to serve in their community.
