Favorite DBS memory: When it comes to DBS, I have many fond memories.  DBS has been a big part of my life from many years.  I hold DBS very close to my heart.  If I had to pick my favorite memory of DBS, it would have to be late night karaoke sessions at convention.  The karaoke sessions are a great way for everyone to let loose and have a blast!! The best part about the karaoke sessions is that you get to laugh, dance, and sing with your sisters from all parts of the country.  To me, this is pretty special!!

Fun facts: My family has had 13 graduates from Texas Tech University.
I have been lucky enough to travel to the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and Paris, France.
On New Years in 2014, I was eating dinner in the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.
As a teacher, I coach a Destination Imagination and U.I.L. team!
