HerStory began with a few Facebook posts. Yes, Facebook posts. It was a typical day, and as I scrolled through my news feed, I stumbled upon three incredible updates back to back. Three different friends, three inspiring stories. And I thought to myself, these are stories that are worth sharing. All of our stories are worth sharing. I had the idea of starting a blog that would not only highlight my efforts to fine-tune and explore my own story—from fashion, to beauty, to intellect, to faith and beyond— but the stories of my friends and other women I come into contact with who are changing the world and inspiring others through their own stories. And thus, HerStory was born.
I am originally from Sugar Land, Texas, which is a suburb of Houston. I grew up in a family of five kids, and I was [un]lucky enough to be the middle child and youngest daughter. (Just kidding. I do consider myself to be very lucky.)
I graduated from Texas Tech University (wreck 'em!) in 2011 with a degree in public relations. From there, my career aspirations took me to Dallas, Detroit and San Francisco, where I had the opportunity to work for renowned PR agencies for a multitude of Fortune 500 companies.
For the past five years, I have had the privilege of serving my communities as a high school educator. I have mostly taught English, but I also taught Communication Applications and World Geography.
I value my experience as an educator and the relationships I forged both in the classroom and on the court and field (volleyball and softball coach), but I am thrilled to rejoin the PR ranks as I move forward in my professional career.
My husband and I got married on Nov. 22, 2014, and we have a son named Case and a daughter named Nora. We live in the Houston area with our kids and our two rescue pups, Pippa and Rosie.
