I am most comfortable working with kids. I have a compassionate drive to make a difference in a child's life. I come from a long line of life of people who love to make an impact. My sister and mother are both teachers, and my other sister owns a daycare, so kids are a part of our family's DNA. When I heard about CASA and what they do to stand in the gaps for kids in need, I felt God nudging me to give my time and talents to help. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and currently work for a local school district as their contract Special Education Counselor. I began volunteering with CASA in the Fall of 2019 and my eyes began to open to the needs of the children in our area. I am foremost a wife of 17 years and a mom to two terrific kiddos. We live in China, Texas and spend most of our time together outside playing basketball, fishing, tumbling in the yard, or just visiting on the front porch. I enjoy going to CrossFit, singing, coffee, and mostly, being with family. CASA has enriched my life to see the difference we can all make in every child's life and I appreciate the opportunity.
