Our Journey, our passion, our dedication to service for others is not just what we do, it is who we are! I married my husband and best friend (Scott) of 33 years in 1987. Scott and I have two incredible sons, two beautiful daughter-n-laws and two wonderful grandchildren! Our favorite pastime is attending church with our family and enjoying a huge family meal with the kids and grandkids every Sunday evening! As a family we have been blessed to work in public service collectively and individually for over 20 years!

Public Service is hard wired in our DNA and serving families in our community is our passion! I began my public service career in 2002, when I co-founded United Response Search and Rescue Team. United Response coordinates and manages search efforts for missing persons of all ages. Our cases include abductions, homicides, run away, human trafficking victims and general missing persons.

As the Director of United Response Search and Rescue Team I have received special recognition from Lewisville P.D, Dallas P.D, Grand Prairie P.D, and the Ellis County Sheriff Department for my work, and my team’s work on missing person cases. In 2002 I was honored to attend by exclusive invitation the signing of the National Amber Alert, by President George Bush at the White House. In 2005 I was humbled to receive the Community All-star Award from Dallas Mavericks. In 2006 I Received Community Spirit Award from Fort Worth Star Telegram. My work on missing persons cases led my team to conduct two international searches for missing persons in Canada, and the Caribbean, as well as numerous searches across the state of Texas and the United States.

My passion and desire to make a difference in my community and in the lives of others ultimately led me to become the first female Police Officer in my family in 2010. I began my career as a Patrol Deputy at a local Sheriff’s Office in North Texas in 2011 and then rose through the ranks to become a School Resource Officer and finally made Detective. In 2012 I received Sheriff’s Citation Award and also received the Sheriff’s Meritorious Award in 2014 and 2018. As a Detective one of my major case responsibilities is working missing persons for the community in which I serve.

Although I have loved working in public service most of my adult life and have been blessed way beyond measure, I have always had a great desire to work in the exciting field of Real Estate! As a Realtor I understand the importance of honesty, dependability, and fiduciary duty! As a public servant I realize how important public trust is and how very valuable this characteristic is to the clients I serve! As your Realtor I promise to make your needs my priority! I will bring my dedication and passion for service to your doorstep and together we will build a successful outcome!
