I was born and raised in a small town in Mississippi, and moved to Houston, TX at the age of 18. My first job was as an adjuster for Allstate, where I worked my way up to a supervisor role and in the process got the attention of a manager who saw how hard I worked and offered me a unique opportunity. He said he owned a small childcare center with an enrollment of around 30 children, and that he had gone through several directors none of which had been able to make it a success. He said "if anyone can do it you can, and I'm so sure of it I will owner finance everything and you can pay me back when you do". I took that opportunity and spent the next 40 years taking that small childcare center and growing it into the largest single childcare facility in the state of Texas with an enrollment of over 1000 children. Throughout this process I've overseen the growth of our facilities, taking it from a 2000 square foot converted house, to over 33,000 square feet of classroom space. My son now runs the childcare business, and I still remain involved in an advisory role today.
Additionally, I own a 516- acre operating cattle ranch with a full time ranch manager who is a direct report to me. Thirty years ago, I purchased the ranch with a few cattle and now currently maintain and breed over 125 head of cattle.
I am blessed to have 4 outstanding children and 8 fantastic grandchildren. I now split my time between Houston and Alto having made numerous lifelong friends along the way.
Over the years I have served on several boards and committees and currently Chair the Ways and Means Executive Committee for the Alto Ladies Golf Association.
My goal is to serve All members of Alto Lakes Country Club, and extend my expertise and experience to assist the board with making decisions that will bring financial success, protect and maintain property values, and make decisions that will improve the quality of the Club.
