Board Secretary

I retired from the legal profession in 2002 and began my role as home administrator, full-time wife and mother. I’ve been involved with Legacy/Cathedral for 18 years. My oldest daughter, Emily, graduated from Legacy in 2013 and now coaches the girls’ Varsity Volleyball Team, while studying Speech and Hearing at Lamar. My youngest daughter, Kate, will graduate in 2017. I also have a nephew in the 4th grade and a niece who just started PreK classes. I’ve been active on both the School Board and the Booster Club Board for many years. Legacy holds a very special place in the hearts of my family; we truly feel blessed to be here. I’m very excited to see where the Lord takes Legacy in the future.
