I joined RECPTA: Because Diane Sherman told me to

I grew up in Dallas, attended Ursuline Academy, and now live in Winnetka Heights. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, I lived in Los Angeles and San Francisco. In 2009, I moved back to the Dallas area to be closer to family and found my forever home. 

Before even moving to Oak Cliff, I joined RECPTA on the recommendation of Diane Sherman. Since then I've been VP of Programs and retreat planner (two years) for RECPTA, and treasurer for Rosemont PTA. 

My husband Chris and I have three sons. Sawyer is eight and loves baseball and Harry Potter and he is going into 3rd grade at Rosemont. Crocker is four and loves everyone and everything so much that he has earned the name Sunshine. Archie is two and is the family wild man. Archie and Crocker attend Springhill Montessori. 

I'm a Realtor with Briggs Freeman Sotheby's, I own a property management company, and I sell quirky hip hop cross stitches on Etsy and at We Are 1976. I'm passionate about giving back to the community that I call home and all things parent-life. Currently, I also serve as Springhill PTO President and secretary for the Winnetka Heights Neighborhood Association.
