What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? I enjoy shopping, volunteering at my kids’ school in Huffman, Texas ISD and a boat ride on Lake Houston.
Where did you grow up? I grew up in Deer Park, Texas. I lived in DP for 38 years before moving to Huffman.
Growing up, what did you want to be? I wanted to be an actress/movie star. Even though I did not become a Hollywood star, I am a star to my husband and kids.
If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why? Princess Diana. She seemed to be down to earth and a well put together, classy lady. She was a great mom and role model to her boys. And she did great things for people who couldn’t do things for themselves.
Where is your favorite place to hang out? I truly love shopping, so I love hanging at the Galleria Mall.
What do you love most about the industry? I truly love helping people achieve the American Dream. I don’t even consider the commission amount when working with buyers. It truly is about them and their dreams. I love my job!

Where do you go to network and meet new clients? Training classes at the office, vendor events, title company get togethers, lender luncheons, school functions and community events.
