Born and raised in Austin (proud 4th generation native of Texas’ most trendy city), I’ve lived in the Lone Star State for my entire life. When it came time for college, I decided to go a little bit country and headed for the bright lights of Bryan/College Station. Five years and two degrees later, I hung up my cowgirl hat, sold my horse (please tell me my sarcasm font is working!), and headed to Big D after brief stints in Austin and Houston. A life-long Southwest traveler, stockholder, and all-around advocate, I was fortunate enough to snag an internship in the Marketing Department while in college. Upon moving to Dallas, I lucked out again and was hired full-time in 2005. Since then I’ve held positions in Customer Support & Services and Purchasing before returning “home” to Marketing.
