VOLUNTEER

We are a family of doers who believe in service to others, and we encouraged our children as they grew up to do more than just attend classes -- to find ways to give back to their schools and community and leave a positive mark on them. I have lived out our family’s values through my own volunteer work. I was the manager of my daughter’s nationally ranked select soccer team for many years- Dallas Texans.  We married at FBC Colleyville and have been members for 23 years. 

 I chaired Dine by Design for 2 years where I did the marketing promotions and chaired the event. I have led Sunday School classes for my kids’ age groups, I ran Students Standing Strong for the Middle School and 5th grade send offs, and I have also chaired fundraisers for Students Standing Strong. The highlight of my life is the relationships I have built with friends and family within our community. 

"GCISD is my special interest."
