A leading force engaging people and ideas in building a better future for rural America.
Women’s Business Center Director
Rural Enterprise Assistance Project (REAP)
When I was 5 years old, I moved to Grand Island, Nebraska, from Houston, Texas, and have known Nebraska to be my home ever since. Rural America holds a special place in my heart because I have had the opportunity to grow up here—the values I have gained growing up in a small community are definitely something I would like my kids to have as well.
Through my work at the Center, I would like to build relationships that will allow us as an organization to thrive in our communities. I want to see the Center have such an impact in our communities that we will be the first option people think of when it comes to training and developing a business entrepreneur, or an existing business owner wanting additional training in groups or one-on-one.
I have been married for 12 years, and we have two amazing kids—an 11-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter. As a family, we love to travel, and spend time watching movies, playing board games, taking bike rides, and participating in 5k and 10k runs.
