Hi Longhorns! I am excited to be Secretary this year! My son is a 3rd grader and my daughter is a 1st grader. Since we started at Wilmeth, I have been a room mom, a field trip chaperone, and have helped with reading groups in the classroom and school events such as Talent Show, Book Fair and Lucky’s Loop. Most recently I served as an At Large member on the board. Prior to having kids, I was a high school teacher and drill team director for 8 years, so being involved with the school and working with kids is a passion of mine.

I am looking forward to a fantastic year with the amazing staff and students at Wilmeth!
