I began working in my mother’s child care facility in 1982 while a junior in high school. I then received my degree in Family and Child Development from Southwest Texas State University in 1989. After graduating, I spent several years working in a full-time facility when an opportunity to start the after-school programs for Lamar CISD was awarded to me in 1997. This resulted in the formation of Tiny Steps Educational Center. While directing six elementary
schools and one private school, I realized the need for a summer camp in the community.
I began designing Kid’s Resort and saw the building through completion in June of 2012. My vision included all the things that I loved as a child. There is a large gym, a large playground, a game room with arcades, science, art, and an area for students to cook. I also brought in my love for animals.
I have been blessed with four children. In 1997, we met Kristen and Patrick, and very quickly they joined our family. It didn’t take long after that, when we met a very special lady who blessed us again with the adoption of our son, Stephen. But GOD was not finished with his blessings. In 1999, Mattea was born. And as fast as I blinked my eyes, I have four grown adults.
Kristen and Patrick are both attending college. Stephen has joined the US Marines (following in his dad’s footsteps), and Mattea is attending Sam Houston with a degree in Criminal Justice. She is also hoping to follow in her dad’s footsteps and work for the FBI. Today, I spend my days spoiling my two grandsons, Lennox and Ryland.
Life has been wonderful to me! I start each day with hope and ambition to make each child feel amazing!
