    Mental health is just as important as physical health
  • About me
    I was born and raised in Austin and have lived in the area the majority of my life. I started working for non-profits straight out of college and love that I get to help people every day.

    I have three cats. I'm a twin, my husband is a twin, and my twin brother's long time girlfriend is a twin. And I'm colorblind, which is very rare in women.

  • Hobbies and interest
    I enjoy entertaining with board games, group video games, and charcuterie boards. I enjoy crafting, small home projects. If I'm not entertaining or working on a project you can find me on the couch watching true crimes or on my back porch reading a book. I also workout with my husband 5 days a week.
