​I am a Marine Corps Veteran. I am a father to 4 daughters. I have and always will be a huge part in my community trying to make it a better place for our kids, who are the future. I have been married for 12 years. I enjoy riding motorcycles and bicycles and spending time with family and friends. I currently work for Est Companies as a Service Technician, I attended UT Brownsville and have lived in Goliad for 6 years. I will gladly give the shirt off my back to help those in need.

​ ​I am from Amarillo originally, but because of work (both my parent's and husband's) I have lived in Oklahoma, Kansas and back again to Texas. I also have had the opportunity to live in Argentina and Ecuador. I moved to Goliad in 2007 with my husband Ernest, after he decided to retire. I have been in Goliad longer than any place I had lived before. I consider Goliad home. I have 3 kids, all grown that live in Alice. I have 4 grandchildren. I graduated Montgomery County College in 1990 with an Associates Degree in Nursing. In nursing I have worked in hospitals, schools, research and home health. I currently work as a RN Consult for La Bahia Adult Daycare in Goliad.
