What’s your favorite thing about your job?

I enjoy seeing my finished designs around campus and in the community.

What’s the most rewarding project you’ve tackled in the past year?

The 2014-15 McLennan Community College Annual Report. It’s the first project of its kind that I’ve done.

Last book you read that you just couldn’t put down?

White Fire by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. It’s the 13th book in the Special Agent Pendergast series. Love this series. SO good.

If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor, and why?

I would choose my dad because he’s honest and hard-working and has a lot of good advice to give. I know this because I bounce ideas off of him a lot. He’s also one of the smartest people I know.

You hit shuffle on your music collection. What song pops up?

“Such Great Heights” by The Postal Service

What’s something other TACCM members probably don’t know about you?

I enjoy shooting archery when I get the chance.

What’s your superpower?

A kind heart.
