Uniting for America
I have truly lived a blessed life. I grew up in Dallas, TX and graduated High School from Bryan Adams in 1989. As a Freshman, I met this cute and quiet young woman in the library (Christie) and always found a way to spend more time in there than I probably should have. It didn't take long before we built a strong friendship that would turn into a date, then marriage some years later. Not only did I marry my High School sweetheart, I married my best friend.
I attended Eastfield College in Mesquite, TX where I earned an AA Degree, followed by Baylor University where I earned a Bachelors in Biology and a Minor in Chemistry (and yes, I am a HUGE science geek)!!
After graduation from Baylor in 1995, I found a passion helping others find jobs in science and became an Executive Recruiter. I now own my own company and still love helping others find passion in their careers.
I have two passions outside of my family and country: I am an avid sailor and guitar player. A little research and you will see many articles I have written on sailing (and songs our family has recorded on itunes)!!!
I truly have lived a blessed life. I want to give much of it now to my country and help lead her where I think she needs to go.

I grew up in East Texas and was a Conservative member of the GOP for most of my life. However, I became frustrated with the internal splintering of the party between the Moderates, Tea Party, and Alt-Right. The party seemed to grow into three different parties wrapped in one package… but none of them getting along. I saw (and have continued to see) the moderate voices pushed out. These were replaced with what I believe were the loudest (and least representative) taking over and holding the rest of the GOP hostage. I saw many politicians I looked up to either leave the party, become pushed aside, or turn into the very fringes they fought against. That was why I left the party… or like so many have said, why the party left me. The GOP of today is not the party I grew up with.
I am right of center. I am a Christian but respectful of other faiths. I am fiscally conservative and believe our National Debt is one of the greatest dangers facing us. I am pro-military and believe no one is above the rule of law (including the President). I am a strong supporter of the second amendment but also believe common sense gun laws to keep us safe should be legislated and enforced. I believe in Global Warming and feel it is an threat to all of us. I believe in Free Trade, NATO, and strong ties with our allies. I believe the tax laws unfairly burdens the Middle Class and should be restructured. I believe in energy independence especially through renewable energy.
Key aspects I will push to enact are:
