What do you want people to know about your family?

We are a close family that works together on many different projects. David is involved in the world of business and I work in the non-profit world. My oldest is about to graduate with her Master from Texas A&M. Lexi graduated from Texas School for the Blind & Visually Impaired (2015) Cole is Homeschooled and Dawson goes to Salado ISD, the boys play a lot of sports!

Why do you Volunteer with the Foundation?

This is my passion! I love to talk to families and help in anyway that I can. The best way to support families is through education, the Foundation provides us an opportunity to learn from each other.

What activities do you like to do?

  • Our family loves to spend time on our ranch in Melvin, Texas. Hunting fishing and working livestock.
  • Lexi likes to watch her brothers play sport. (baseball, football & basketball)
  • She loves to swim too!
