I love the outdoors, gardening, landscaping, working on my fishpond, and hosting backyard house concerts with musicians from all over the country. All these things make me incredibly relaxed and at peace. My home and yard is truly an Oasis from the craziness life can throw at me. It helps make sense of the world for me.
When I'm not able to spend time doing those things, I am the president and founder of a local 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization called ATX Kids Club that offers educational clubs, summer camps, and After-school Adventures to elementary aged students. I am also a Legalshield Member and Associate, which allows me the opportunity to offer memberships to others that are interested in affordable legal services. I have previously been an Assistant Principal and Elementary School Teacher for K-5th Grade. In my free time, I love to be outdoors. I have 2 dogs (Scout and Roxanne) and an Orange Tabby cat (Tiggs). I enjoy spending time out and about with friends as well as peaceful times alone. Austin has become my home after spending most of my years in the North-eastern part of the US (PA/MD). I have been here for about 6 years and can't imagine living anywhere else. People ask why Austin, and other than the warm temperatures that I prefer, it's the people here. Austin is a small city filled with people from other places. It creates a city that is filled with people that live here intentionally and love being here. So, I believe the outcome of this, is a city filled with happy people. There is so much to do here always but it's not too big that you feel overwhelmed by it being a city. You can participate or not, but having the option so close is very nice. Austin is becoming a huge hotspot for tourism and people relocating. Our economy is doing well and our Real Estate is reasonably affordable. I hope you consider taking a trip to this wonderful city!
