WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT HILL COLLEGE?
It’s awesome that Hill College is home to such an impressive museum.

WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE EVERYONE TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR JOB
Our patrons and visitors are always so excited about our collections and exhibits, and our researchers are so appreciative to have the information we discover about their relatives.  They regularly leave me with the feeling that we are doing something right at this museum. 

ANYTHING YOU’D LIKE TO SHARE ABOUT YOURSELF?
As a person who frequents and loves museums, I feel lucky to be a museum employee.

HOBBIES OR INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF WORK
One of my favorite things to do is drive around Texas visiting new museums, trying new restaurants and exploring the numerous small towns to be found throughout the state.  One year I decided to try to find the best pie within a day’s driving distance from Hillsboro.  It turned out to be a funky restaurant in Alvarado and it was a delicious home-made peach cobbler.

WHO IS YOUR HERO AND WHY?
My heroes are folks who manage to overcome the most difficult situations in life and use those experiences to help others and/or to influence much needed changes.
