I’ve been married for 15 adventurous years to my amazing husband Toby who is the General Manager of Brakes Plus in Plano. We are a blended family with 8 fantastic children. Our 2021 graduate of Bonham High School will attend the University of North Texas, our 9th grader attends Anna High School, and our 1st grader attends Finley-Oates Elementary. We have a Siberian Husky/Malamute mix named Blu and 2 tropical goldfish.
I enjoy attending my children’s football and basketball games, volunteering, playing Bunco with neighbors, evening walking, organizing, making/baking/creating desserts, camping, fishing, binge watching Netflix, traveling, and family game/movie nights.
