In summary, I have over 20 years of experience in a corporate environment and a few more years in small business, both retail and service. I hold a Texas Real Estate Broker license, a B.S. in Mathematics from Texas A&M Kingsville, an MBA in Finance from the University of Denver, and a Ph.D. in Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance from University of Texas at San Antonio.

I have three children who are my inspiration in life. Each is on a path of their own and I am very proud of them.

I am second eldest of ten children and while I did not finish high school, I was the first in my family to earn a college degree.

As of May 2014, NINE of us have college degrees, four of us have Master's degrees, and two of us have doctorate degrees.

What is more amazing is our next generation; already we have Associate degrees and Certificates from Southwest Texas Jr College, Midland College, Fulton Montgomery Community College (NY), San Antonio College, Palo Alto College, and Laredo Community College; Bachelor's Degrees from: Texas A&M University, Texas A&M International, University of Texas Permian Basin, St. Mary's University, and Sul Ross State University. And a Master's degree from St. Mary's University with a CPA designation as well.

Believe me when I say ... I understand the difficulties that arise when you are pursuing a goal! But no matter what, remember:

"Si se puede " -- Dolores Huerta

or the latest version

"Yes we Can" -- President Barak Obama.
