I am married to my high school sweetheart, Nate, and have one teenage son, Benjamin. Originally from Indianapolis, my family and I relocated to Sugar Land in October 2012. I am a CPA specializing in corporate taxation and work for a Sugar Land based refining company. I have served on the FCCSA Board since January 1, 2017, initially seeking a Board position as means to serve in a capacity that allows me to utilize my professional strengths while participating in the decision-making process that preserves our property values and further enhances the aesthetic appeal of our maturing community. I am seeking re-election to continue these efforts.
I am a seasoned management executive and CPA, with forty years of tax and business experience. Although I worked for years inside public accounting, multi-national international tax departments and as a C-suite business executive, I now enjoy a “concierge” tax and business
consulting practice limited to a small group of clients. Currently, I serve as a consultant, officer and/or board member for organizations with revenues of $3-$50 million across multiple industries.
Over the past decades, I have invested, started, acquired, turned around, and/or sold a dozen small businesses, primarily for private equity investors. Many endeavors required substantial operating changes and back office improvements to address urgent process and financial stresses from rapid growth or decline. Each required rapid adaptability to industry best practices.
I was educated at the University of Texas obtaining both a BBA in Accounting and Masters in Taxation.
First Colony has been home for thirty-two years, and we have been privileged to be active in community, school and church affairs. I just celebrated thirty-six years of marriage to my wonderful wife, Rosemary; helped raise three accomplished children; and now dote on three
I am well-spoken in Portuguese and Spanish, love to travel and experience other cultures, which makes the diversity of First Colony particularly appealing.
I would be honored to serve another term of FCCSA board service, and would like to continue putting my array of accumulated business knowledge at your service.
I have been married 45 years to my husband, Grant. I have one adult daughter who is a graduate of Clements High School, Texas A & M University, and UTSPH. I was born in Beaumont, Texas and studied at the University of Cincinnati with a focus in Public Administration through their University Without Walls program.
My family and I have lived in Fort Bend County for 45 years and have resided in First Colony, in the Woodstream community, for 33 years.
I’m a retired Municipal Government employee following a 25-year career. I served under four mayors and worked in the following three departments: Health & Human Services, City Council, and Parks & Recreation.
I have volunteered with FCCSA since 2005 serving as the Neighborhood chairperson for my neighborhood. Key projects include: Neighborhood Watch, Esplanade Enhancement, Exercise Equipment, and Trail Markers.
FCCSA Committees I have served on are: Covenants, Property Improvement (PIC), Comprehensive Master Plan (CMP) Task Force, Elections & Nominations, and Communications.
I have served on the FCCSA Board of Directors since 2015 and have served as Board Secretary and Vice President. I am also serving on the Plantation Settlement Board and Board liaison for PIC, Covenants, and Communication committees. I have enjoyed working with the other Board members, FCCSA Staff, and members of the First Colony community and am highly interested in being elected by the membership and continuing for another term.
