Interests & Hobbies

I’m always looking for new experiences and willing to try new things.  Here are just a few of the interests and activities that I enjoy.

  • I enjoy running and have completed 2 half marathons as well as numerous smaller races.

My sister and I raised money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and ran the Nike Women’s Half Marathon together in San Francisco with Team in Training.

  • I love to cook and eat and have alot of fun trying new and different foods and restaurants.

Enjoying some Tex-Mex food (one of my all-time favorite foods) in Houston with friends

  • I am a bit of a beer snob and really love checking out new breweries and local wineries.  I’ve also made my own wine and am about to venture into the world of homebrewing.

Trying a flight of micro brews at Blue Mountain Brewery

Touring the Saint Arnold’s Brewery in Houston with family and friends

  • I enjoy traveling and although my number 1 favorite destination is Texas since my family lives there, I also love seeing new places.  Since finishing college, I’ve traveled to New York, Seattle, St. John’s, Antigua, Kauai, Hawaii, Las Vegas, New Orleans, San Francisco, the Outer Banks, and lots of other fun destinations!

Visiting Disney World with my family

  • Beyond anything else, spending time with family and friends (and making new friends) is what I love the most!
