Bio I was born and raised in the Dallas area, and now married and raising my three beautiful children in the area. I am a JV basketball coach, and a high school Social Studies teacher. I am also a blogger/writer for various online publications. I enjoy spending my time outside hiking, biking, canoeing, motorcycling, traveling, and playing in the water during the hot Texas summers. I am a lifelong athlete running in 5k's, various mud runs, climbing mountains, crossfit, paddle boarding, and of course playing basketball just to name a few. I got my undergrad work in applied sociology and minored in business, at Texas State University- San Marcos while playing basketball for the Bobcats, then I received my Master's in Liberal Studies with a concentration in history at Southern Methodist University. I am a life long learner and will most likely continue taking courses and learning new skills throughout my life. I enjoy projects that stimulate my mind and involve me in physical activities. I am very goal oriented and have realized my ability to accomplish whatever I put my mind to. I strongly believe that if there is a will there is a way. So get out there and get creative in reaching your goals.
