Young mother of two, kickboxing addict, and fashionista. I play basketball and wear stilettos, not necessarily at the same time. I love golf, snowboarding, red wine and a good steak. My primary focus in life is to serve and encourage others. I try not to get insulted when people are shocked I have a BS in Statistics and Industrial Management from Carnegie Mellon University. I don’t know if it’s the blonde hair or southern accent that throws them off. I started my career as an IT nerd, programming interfaces for a big consulting firm. After dabbling in strategy and business process reengineering, I changed careers to what might be considered insane: teaching teenagers. I taught middle school at a private school in Houston, TX where I served as the Math Department Chair and Head Girls Basketball Coach. In 2004 my husband and I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where I continued to teach until we started a family. I currently serve on the Board of Directors at the Valley Pregnancy Center, and work at home raising my children & doing massive amounts of laundry. I love to Facebook in line at the grocery store, and I tweet about my obsession with designer shoes and San Francisco Giants baseball. You will occasionally find me on the driving range trying to improve my golf swing.
