Where are you originally from?
I was born in San Antonio; raised in San Antonio; quickly went to San Marcos for school and rushed back to San Antonio to start my career. Is there anywhere else to be? I think not!
Tell us something really interesting about you.
I am a classically trained violinist.
Everyone at SMPS has a story about why they joined the organization. What’s yours?
When hired at H2, the company was new, as was I. I needed a place to aid in my professional development, and provide a network to benefit the marketing and business development goals of our firm. SMPS has been that organization.
What drew you to the A/E/C industry?
I like to say the AEC industry chose me. I am from the charitable, not-for-profit sector and was given an opportunity to make a career change. My father is a highly respected, well known mechanical engineer in our community. Years ago, he opened the door to an opportunity which has since evolved to where I am now. Maybe growing up around drafting tables and T-Squares sealed my fate long ago!
Where’s your favorite place to eat in San Antonio?
Anyone who has recently met me for breakfast knows at this moment in time I am ADDICTED to The Egg and I. The raspberry granola pancake rocks my world. Be warned. It is the size of a placemat.
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time you will find me tending to the garden, planning for the next planting season, studying plant ecology, and coloring.
Do you have any pets?
Not right now. We had a greyhound many years ago. She was absolutely majestic.
What would be impossible for you to give up?
Music. It has the power to influence, transform, and define the moment. Life is a musical that never ends!
Describe your ideal vacation.
In the water, on the water, near the water. Add some sand, a bit of beach volleyball, an umbrella drink, and I am good to go.
