Marketing & Social Media Team Leader

My iGnite Experience:

 

When I got involved with iGnite 6 years ago, my light began to fully shine again after the accident. My love and appreciation for the outdoors was rekindled. The positive and inspiring environment that iGnite provides led me out of my comfort zone and into a much more exciting way of living. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be on this team as well as learn from all of the amazing women in iGnite.

When I’m not working, I’m:

Driving carpool, attending sporting events, spending time with family and friends, volunteering or enjoying the outdoors.

 

Favorite Quote:

 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and you minds in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:7

By prayer and petition, present your requests to God.

I was raised in the small Texas town of Hillsboro, just north of Waco. Growing up in a small town allowed me to be able to participate in any and all sports including tennis, volleyball, cheerleading, gymnastics and dance. I loved being a part of any team and enjoyed living the laid-back but action-packed life a small town allows.

I attended the University of Texas and loved being a Longhorn, attending sporting events and making long-lasting friendships. I graduated with a degree in finance and immediately went to work in the corporate world. I learned pretty quickly that the suit and office were not for me! I put in my time but was relieved when that time was over. While I was working, I married my husband, Bryan, and we are celebrating our 16 year anniversary this summer.

Life-changing experience:

 

My husband and I have three beautiful children – Whit (6), Adele (2) and Bowen. Bowen passed away in 2007 after a tragic car accident. He was six months old and we were forever changed. We relied on God’s grace, mercy and strength to get us through each day. It gave our family a new perspective on life – an eternal one knowing that our time here is temporary. We learned the importance of supportive friends and family and feel blessed to have them. We also gained greater compassion and empathy for others through this loss.
