Why I love doing what I do:

I love tourism! I’ve grown up in this industry, from the service side to now owning a business that specializes in destination marketing. I’ve seen firsthand how it can revitalize and breathe new life into communities. Being a Southerner, hospitality is important.

Serving out of love and genuine care for another is the foundation of it all – whether you’re serving a meal to a family at a restaurant that may have been saving for the last year for this quick trip together, or you’re helping a town that never really saw the beauty and potential of their own community because they needed an outsider to remind them it was there. It’s truly an honor to have the opportunity to work with the wonderful clients that I do, and help them dream new dreams and reach their goals.

My Philosophy:

As a Georgia girl and now honorary Texan (after marrying my husband, [who] is a proud Texas man), I cannot tell you the ways in which my life has been blessed and enriched since arriving in Corpus Christi. After starting a business last year and now entering into a new chapter of life, it’s truly been a season of just realizing, “Wow, I am literally sitting right in the middle of everything I’ve ever hoped and dreamed of. God has delivered it all.” And there’s something about that kind of gratitude for what you’ve been given that drives you to want to be your best.

I’m in a much different place than I was even just a few years ago. Preparing to become a mother changes your perspective on life!  I want to be a good steward of all that I’ve been blessed with – not squandering anything, be it personally or professionally. I simply cannot do that in my own strength, but through my faith, I can.

I’m not scoring touchdowns each day, but I wake up with passion and purpose. People say not to look at your past, but I think it’s important to reflect upon where you’ve been in order to appreciate where you are and move towards where you want to be. From childhood to now, it’s through that intentional reflection that I can see all the ways in which God was working in my life, even when all my little duckies were not in a row! Gratitude and joyful expectancy – that’s what I hold onto each day.

Words to Live By:

“You do not have enough faith,” Jesus replied. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” – Matthew 17:20 NLT
