Meet The Candidate
I am a native Texan, born and raised right here in the DFW metroplex. After graduating Mesquite High School (Go Skeeters!), I attended Dallas Baptist University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Psychology. During college I began working as a part-time bank teller and quickly discovered I had a knack for the industry. My passion to serve, help others and solve problems has led me to a 20 year career in banking.
I have been a resident of Allen since 2015 and find myself loving this community more and more each year. I am married to the most intelligent, kind and compassionate woman, and we have 4 incredible kids from ages 5 - 14. Yep, our hands are full!
When I am not working or taxiing the kiddos around, I enjoy running and volunteering. Servant leadership is a part of my DNA, and I am so fortunate to be able to give back to my community both professionally and personally. For more information on my community engagement, please click here.
Like many of you, our family loves Allen because it is an ideal place to live and raise a family. We know that our kids are receiving a first class education and have access to incredible community amenities such as amazing parks, trails, sports programs and other resources like our library. We also love the feeling of security we have living in one of the safest cities in the country thanks to our incredible police and fire departments. We are so fortunate to experience such an amazing quality of life while benefiting from one of the lowest property tax rates in Collin County.
It is because of this and so much more that I want to be your next councilmember. I believe that we need to cherish all that Allen is, respect what it took to get here and simultaneously work to never stop improving so that our neighbors and children can enjoy the Allen we know today for generations to come.
