I am a 6th generation Texan, born and raised in Dallas County, and graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio. Afterwards, I worked in the Washington, D.C., area with the National Rifle Association. Upon moving back to the Lone Star State, I continued working with The NRA Foundation as a consultant. I took on a number of roles in various marketing projects and campaigns before embarking on my most important and rewarding adventure as a stay-at-home mom.
On the political front, I have been a precinct chairman, an election judge, a county chairman, the Senatorial District 21 State Republican Executive committeewoman, and in June of this year, I was unanimously elected as the Vice-Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. In these various roles, I have worked to expand and energize the Republican Party in Texas. I have served as chair of the Party Organization committee of the SREC for two terms and served twice on the state party’s Ballot Integrity Task Force. I traveled to both Colorado and Ohio to volunteer for the national Victory effort in 2012, leading a team of 28 to Cleveland with the Might Texas Strike Force.
I now live outside Floresville with my husband, a wildlife business consultant, and our two wonderful daughters. I work as a freelance marketing consultant and continue to travel across the state presenting to the grassroots on messaging and communication, the legislative process, and getting out the vote.
An NRA life member and university-Model homeschool mom, I am passionate about sharing my love of the outdoors, food, football, and the Constitution with my girls. I am truly blessed beyond measure in my life, and in my opportunity to stand up and speak out for the principles I hold dear. I fervently believe that America is that Shining City on a hill, and that it is up to all of us—each in our own way—to defend her and preserve our freedoms for the next generation.
“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.” –Ronald Reagan
