Killeen has been my home for most of my life, and I love this city. All of my public school years were spent in KISD. After graduating from Killeen High School, I received two degrees from Baylor University in Waco: a B.A. and an M.S. in education.

Returning to my hometown, I worked in our school district as a teacher and later as a counselor. I met my husband here, and together we had two sons. The military took us to Korea, Germany and Alabama, but most of our time was spent at Fort Hood.

I was able to retire from KISD with 28 years of service. I also worked for two education centers in Europe teaching soldiers.

I have always been active in our community, holding offices in various organizations and volunteering for such groups as Metroplex Hospital and Vive Les Arts. In addition, I have always loved travel and have visited more than 60 countries.

Two years ago, I decided to take my first step into politics. This was done because of a sincere desire to serve all of the people of Killeen. From a large field of candidates, I was elected by the voters to the City Council and was later elected by the council as Mayor Pro Tem.

These last two years have been a wonderful experience. As a council, we have accomplished much, but there is still much to complete and much we hope to do. I have learned many things and met many people. I hope to put this experience to work by being elected to two more years.
