The best advice I ever heard is … If you have time to do it wrong, you have time to do it again.

My three most recommended books are … To Kill a Mockingbird, Little Women and Emily Post’s Etiquette!

To me, success means … living a happy life and helping to make this world a better place for everyone. 

People who know me might be surprised that I … am a
St. Louis sports fan. It’s my hometown, and I grew up attending Cardinal baseball, Cardinal football (dating myself) and Blues hockey.   

My biggest pet peeve is … tardiness. 

Everyone in Amarillo needs to experience … our revitalized downtown! Downtown is an important historic and economic asset in our community that continues to grow more robust.   

 If I could change any one local thing it would be … nothing. I am a transplanted Amarilloan of more than
30 years. The people are amazing. Amarillo is a great place to work and raise a family. I have made both professional and personal relationships that are invaluable to me.      

This city is amazing at … sunrises and sunsets.

My favorite place in Amarillo is … anywhere outside on a summer evening.   

A local organization I love right now … is Hands On Amarillo. HOA is an online volunteer center for the nonprofit community of Amarillo and surrounding areas. HOA connects volunteers to agencies that are appropriate for their passions. Whether it be helping children, senior citizens and everything in between, HOA provides an important and valuable service to our community. (
