My husband, Naveen, and I moved to College Station with our infant son, Paul, about 30 years ago when Naveen landed his first teaching job at College Station ISD. Since then we have had our daughter, Katheryn, two more sons, Patrick and Preston, bought our family home, and watched this beautiful city grow right along with us.
When my youngest child started preschool, I did too! I enjoyed several years as the lead three year old teacher at Christ United Methodist Church’s “School for Little People.” It’s hard to believe that same youngest child is now part of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 2020!
I have always shouldered the responsibility of investing in the community that has helped raise my family. I have enjoyed serving in a variety of different organizations, such as being president of my neighborhood’s homeowner association, a member and chair of the Parks and Recreation Board, and teaching a state-certified marriage preparation class.
As a mother of three boys, I embraced Cub Scouts. I greatly appreciate the positive impact scouting had on my sons. I spent years in Cub Scouts as a den leader, a committee chair, a unit chair, a unit commissioner and a Youth Protection Training instructor. I invested several years developing the nature science curriculum and serving as the Program Director for McNair Adventure Camp at Bovay Scout Ranch in nearby Grimes County.
Currently I work at A&M Consolidated High School in the Student Success Learning Lab helping students recover credits they need to graduate. I love the opportunity to work in an excellent school that served all four of my own children- it’s my way of giving back! I also support our school by driving busses for field trips and competitions, and selling tickets at the home football games. I think I have the best seat in the house!
As a now empty nester, I identified this as a season to offer my community more formal service, which is why I have decided to run for City Council this year.
