(B.F.A., illustration and photography, 1985) lives in Copperas Cover, Texas, with her children, Hunter (June 1996) and Brice (May 1998).
She wrote, "As a military mom/wife I have had very few chances to work with my major, but over the years I have designed exhibits for the First Cavalry Museum, designed and implemented the construction of a playground, created logos and newsletters for the Officer's Civilians Spouses Association of Ft. Bliss, the Officer's Spouses Club of Ft. Stewart and the Volunteer Newsletter for the El Paso Zoo.
I have the most awesome Halloween house on the block with giant, life-like monsters, often making the newspaper front page and with my photography degree I take GREAT family pictures!
So even though I'm not making a living with either of my degrees, I am using my education to help my community and enhance my family life.
Not a bad trade."

From 2006 to 2009, in my hometown of Jacksonville, Florida, I was a certified public high school teacher. Currently I'm applying to doctoral programs in art history with plans to teach at the university level.
