Where is your favorite travel destination and memory?  I lived in Thailand for a year and was continually impressed by the positive spirit of the people, their amazing and dynamic food, crafts and traditions, and the colorful history of the regions.  

Where have you not yet been able to visit, but have always wanted to?  Italy is on my list!  The history, the sites and especially the food! Every region has its specialty and I cannot wait to try it all.  

What is your favorite thing about Austin?  The lifestyle it brings to you.  The best in all types of food, so much music, the mix of people, the beautiful and challenging trails, and the arts.  It is all here and ready for you to love Austin living. 

What does having a position at Campus on Lake Austin mean to you?  As the spouse of a 40-year career educator, it is so exciting to be a part of an effort to positively activate and educate our public school leaders.  Nothing is more important than enriching the learning of our future generations.
