Being a second-generation Aggie, I veered from the traditional path to Texas A&M University after graduating from High School. I started my undergraduate years playing softball at Tyler Junior College before transferring to Texas A&M my sophomore year. Growing up playing sports to then playing collegiately, I learned the value of community, teamwork, and the hard-work required to reach a goal. I love relating these lessons learned into my career and personal life.

I started my career and graduated from Texas A&M University amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, learning very quickly the power of client-advisor communication during volatile times. I joined Astoria Strategic Wealth in 2021 following almost a year and a half of experience at another fee-only RIA firm where I focused solely on young professionals. 

I currently reside in West Columbia, Texas with my husband Ryan. Ryan is a coach and special education teacher at West Columbia High School. We are members of Brazos Pointe Fellowship and love to spend our free time being active or attending Texas Country Music concerts.
