Tell me a little bit about yourself.
I was born and raised in Dallas. I always knew of the Metrocrest Chamber of Commerce through my grandmother and grandfather’s involvement in the community. When I was 16, I began interning at the Chamber under Lisa Hermes’ leadership. While attending Baylor University, I continued to help the Chamber during the summers alongside Erin Carter. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education, I started teaching freshman English at Creekview High School in Carrollton. I taught for four years before jumping into my new role as Events and Marketing Coordinator at the Metrocrest Chamber of Commerce. I married my husband, Michael, in July of last year and we currently live in Farmers Branch with our dog, Murray.
