Originally from Anahuac, my family and I moved to Danbury in 2007 and it’s been home for us ever since. My son attends Danbury Elementary and we are members of Community Baptist Church. I am a graduate of Texas A&M University and have worked in Agriculture my entire career. Currently, I lead Indigo Ag’s Commercial Crop Business. I ran for the Danbury ISD Board of Trustees in 2018, and I believe Danbury is well positioned to be one of the best districts in the state. We have great students and talented staff committed to each student's success. My goal is to support our Superintendent, promote culture that celebrates a team culture, and holds us all accountable to achieve success.

Having lived in Danbury most of my life, I not only attended all three schools but call myself a proud alumni of Danbury High School. Our small town and school traditions make Danbury a unique and fun place to live, but they are also one of the primary reasons my husband and I chose to remain here to raise our family. A product of all three Danbury schools within Danbury ISD, after graduating from Danbury High School in 1997, I attended Alvin Community College before transferring to The University of Houston Clear Lake, where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2002. Wanting to further my education, I received my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Lamar University in 2020, where I was also a student member of Kappa Delta Pi (International Honor Society in Education). Having served thousands of students and families in many different roles over my past 21 years in education, I proudly and currently serve the students, families, and community of R.L. Stevenson Primary as an Assistant Principal in Alvin ISD. Because my family, my children, and I are all products of Danbury ISD, I know firsthand the impact our school district has on our students, families, and community. I want to ensure that the legacy my family and I know continues for future generations. With education and children as my passion, I feel the best way to advocate for both is to be a positive voice through a position on the school board of DISD. Danbury ISD is full of possibilities, and I want to help ensure that it reaches its fullest potential - not just today and during my term but for years to come. I am committed to excellence and believe our school board has worked hard to make some improvements to the challenges our district faces. I am excited about the opportunity to interview and select our next superintendent. I look forward to working alongside the new candidate to continue to make efforts to ensure our students have a safe learning environment that addresses their needs. My goal is to create a cohesive district aligned with our new mission and goals.

I am a member of the Danbury High School Class of 1976 as well as the Texas A&M Class of 1980 where I earned a Bachelor of Science-Computer Science degree. In 2007, I retired from Shell Oil where I worked as a Computer Technology Consultant. I was a member of the Danbury Athletic Booster Club for 14 years and wanted to step up to the next level in supporting Danbury ISD. I have served on the Danbury Board of Trustees since 2017. Our students are our future, so the Board needs to set the priorities and provide oversight of the district’s finances and resources ensuring they are effectively and efficiently used to prepare our students for that future.

I am a Danbury graduate from the Class of 89. I am a lifelong Danbury resident, and my family has had roots in the community for generations. My great-grandfather settled here and opened the grocery store formerly known as Leos. Both my parents are graduates of Danbury ISD as well. I have 5 of my own kids who are grads of DISD and 2 kids who are currently enrolled. I enlisted in the Marines in 1991 and retired in 2013 at rank of Master Sergeant. I then transitioned to Dow Chemical where I have been employed for the last eight years in Plant Operations and Maintenance. I chose to run for school board to be a voice for our community, especially our kids and teachers. My goal as a board member is to be part of a team that moves Danbury ISD forward to continue on a journey of growth and success.

I graduated from a nearby school a few years back (ok maybe more than a few years) My wife, Jessie, and our two children Konnor (12) and Kamryn (8) moved to the Danbury area about 10 years ago and attend Danbury Community Baptist Church. I received my Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Animal Science from Sam Houston State University. I have worked in both the non-profit and for-profit sector and am currently a Sales Rep for Sysco Foods. My family has a strong passion for public education. As Christians, we are charged with leading our children. We believe one of the ways to lead is by ensuring our children have the best possible educational experience available, so when the opportunity to run for school board was presented, we prayed and discussed it as a family. Together, we decided it was the path God was calling me to pursue. As someone who is married to a lifelong educator, this is something that is discussed on a daily basis within our household. First and foremost, we as a board want to make sure we are being good stewards of taxpayer dollars. From a primary education standpoint, I would love to see a push towards ensuring our students have an enriched experience and are reading at grade level. From a secondary standpoint, I am a big advocate for career and technical education. This allows students to pursue their passions, making them future ready whether they go to college, a trade school, the military, or straight into the workforce. And as a whole, I want a priority to be placed on the safety and security of our campuses. We as a board and district want our parents to feel a sense of security everyday when they drop their children off knowing that not only are they learning, but we are working just as diligently to ensure their safety. While I am still within my first term on the board, it has truly been a tremendous experience and opportunity to represent our district and work towards the common goal of providing as best of an enriched and educational opportunity as possible for all of our students from Pre-K to 12th grade. I feel blessed to work with other great board members, excellent administrators, teachers, and staff, along with all of our wonderful parents. I look forward to, hopefully, continuing to serve Danbury ISD.

I am originally from Corpus Christi. I moved to the Brazoria County area in 2001 after meeting my wife, Kerri, in college. We moved to Danbury in 2017. I have worked in the medical field for over 15 years. I started my career as a Registered Respiratory Therapist having graduated from Alvin Community College. I continued my education while working at the Texas Children’s Hospital. Upon completing my Bachelor’s of Science in Healthcare Management, I transitioned to a full-time Professor of Respiratory role at Lonestar college. I continued my education while at Lonestar and completed my Master of Science in Healthcare Management and my Doctorate of Education in Organizational Leadership. I am currently Supervisor of Donation Systems for LifeGift, the local Organ Procurement Organization. I ran for school board to help shape the long term vision for the school district. With three children attending the district, I have a vested interest in creating a quality foundation that we can build upon for years to come. This foundation includes accountability, communication, transparency, and high-quality instruction. One thing I would like to accomplish while on the board is to increase community engagement. The community is one of our best resources to gauge the effectiveness of the district. We need feedback from community members, support at district events, and a deepened relationship with parents.
