Howdy! I have been a resident of Bryan/College Station since 2003 and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology from Texas A&M University in 2009. During my time as a student, I worked part-time at First National Bank of Bryan, now known as Prosperity Bank. After graduation, I have grown my career within the banking industry to become the Senior Banking Center Manager for Prosperity Bank at our College Station-Tower Point banking center.

My husband Justin, a Bryan/College Station native, and I married in 2013. In 2016, we started Aggieland Masonry LLC, with a focus on repairs and renovations in masonry, waterproofing and concrete. We welcomed our daughter, Charley Renee, in January of 2019. A lot of my spare time is spent enjoying our life as a young family and spending as much time as possible fishing on the coast!
