She has demonstrated this value by serving as a leader in her hometown, including the Boerne Chamber of Commerce, Government Affairs, the Boerne ISD Budget Committee and the Boerne Community Theatre. She was appointed by Lt. Governor David Dewhurst in 2011 to the Texas Prepaid Higher Education Tuition Board.
She holds two licenses for life insurance and real estate. Together, she and her husband, Tom, are small business owners, working in real estate and insurance.
