Austin State University. She has a BA in education and taught school for a few years. She worked in public health for the City of Austin for over 20 years before retiring in December 2005.

She says each wedding is unique and brings with it many challenges and rewards. She says, "It's a fun job that I continue to enjoy. I love seeing couples start out their new lives with God as a partner."
