As a long-time Bastrop Resident, I've always wanted to be a part of an organization that gives back to the community. When I was asked in 2019 to join the BEF Board, I leaped at the opportunity.
As a Graphic Designer, & owner of dos Designs, I support businesses with creativity that is specific to marketing & advertising. Prior to my current role, I worked for BISD in several capacities. During my time there, I was part of several groups that benefited from BEF Grants, and have witnessed first-hand the benefits that the BEF Grants can provide for BISD students. After working at BISD for almost 10 years, I decided to focus my career on my creative talents, which led me to the current role I'm in. As a BISD Parent, and previous BISD employee, along with my design experience and relationships with local Bastrop Businesses, I feel I bring a unique perspective to the BEF Board.
I love all of Bastrop, but one of my favorite places is the historic district of downtown, including our beautiful river. The architecture, the locals & tourists that gravitate there, and the sunsets near the river.
I'm a licensed mediator, and a Certified Behavior Specialist (from my previous career) and use my knowledge and experience to assist wherever I can. Being a compassionate person by nature, I try to understand every possible perspective. Those that don't know me well might not realize my passion for being an ally to everyone & anyone.
I'm a mom of 5, ages ranging from 16 to 3, with all attending BISD campuses.
