I graduated from Schreiner College with a degree in Biology, then moved to San Antonio to start my teaching career. A few years later I received a masters degree in multidisciplinary sciences from the University of the Incarnate Word.
During my nine years in education, I taught Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Environmental Science. I also coached volleyball, track and cross country for 5 of those years.
I have been married to my college sweetheart and we have three wonderful children. A daughter who is 8 years old and two boys who are 6 and 4.
