I grew up in Katy, TX which is a suburb of Houston.My hometown was such a great place to grow up. There were lots of things to do, but it still had that small town feel. Everyone was very friendly and there was a nice sense of community. It keeps growing and is different every time I go back.
When I was growing up, my mom influenced me the most. She always encouraged me to push my boundaries and try new things. I learned early on that nobody knows everything, and that there is always something new to learn or a way to improve.
I got my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Sport Management from Texas A&M University. I loved attending A&M (for 7 years!) and hope to send my children there one day too!
