I have been a resident of Lake Kiowa since 2013.

My professional background includes working in the accounting field since I was a teenager.  I only did one year of college immediately after high school, but I returned to school as an adult.  I graduated in 1998 from Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth with a Bachelor of Business Administration.  I passed the CPA exam in 1999 on my first attempt.

Since becoming a CPA, I have mainly been employed in public accounting with an emphasis in tax.  I still work from home part-time for two different CPA offices.  I have also worked as a controller in the oil & gas industry and the freight industry.

Beginning in 2016, I participated in the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program certified by IRS at the Cooke County Library.  I served as the local coordinator for three of those years. 

I joined the Lake Kiowa Kiwanis Club in 2013.  I have been active in our yearly fundraiser and have assisted with several projects at the elementary school.  I served as President for their 2016-2017 year.

Serving on the board of the Indian Creek Volunteer Fire Department is a way for me to give back to our community.
