I truly love my career and the opportunities it allows me to meet great people and be a part of helping their life go right. I am also very active in the community and in our schools, helping promote and make Bastrop County a better place for all of us!

I played college volleyball and was a 2-Year Captain of the University of Houston Volleyball Team. I was also a member of UH Track Team. I have been a State Farm agent since 2002 and am proudly a Second Generation State Farm Agent as my Dad was an agent as well. I love community involvement and am a Past Chair of the Board of Directors for the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce, Past President of the Cedar Creek Athletic Booster Club for 9 years and an active community and school volunteer.
