I began my career as a substitute teacher.  I obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree with honors in 1978.  After graduating, I worked as a Chemist/HazWaste Manager for Freeport McMoRan, Inc.  Then, my life’s path took me to California where I was employed as an Environmental Health Engineer at the Boeing Plant where the Delta Rockets were manufactured. During this time, I pursued a Master’s in Quality Assurance. After almost 10 years and at family’s request, I relocated to Louisiana to support a family business as an Administrative Manager for a Home Health Company.  The final leg of my career path brought me to Texas.  I arrived in 2001.  It was my first experience working in government as an Environmental Investigator.  For more than 35 years, I had worked dealing with compliance of local, state and federal laws.

Since retiring, I was elected by my peers to serve on the Texas Silver Haired Legislature (TSHL).  We advocate for the elderly.  I have also reactivated with my sorority to support the wonderful service projects.  I am a new member of the Church Women United.  I am a Deputy Voter Registrar, a Precinct Chair and served as a Precinct Judge in past elections.

What are my strengths? I’m dependable, have a great sense of humor and honest (to a fault).  My weakness is: I tend to be argumentative (…only one weakness you may ask?).  The joke around my kitchen table is that my tombstone will read: “I can’t argue with this.”  The problem is, I want to be cremated and have my ashes spread so I can breathe free-figuratively! But before I go, I want to help make a difference in the future of the state I have come to love and a country I continue to love!
