Born in Del Rio, Texas at Laughlin AFB. I am excited to be back in the great state of Texas and to call the growing city of Wichita Falls home. With a background in education and a Master’s degree in Public Administration, service to others is the foundation of my belief system. Furthermore, as the spouse of an Air Force Officer, I have traveled extensively throughout the United States, Japan, and Europe. This has provided me with a distinctive understanding of the military relocation process, and will assist me in matching you with your dream home.
