After graduating, she became an American Airlines Flight Attendant for 13 years and was based in Chicago. She has also lived in Singapore, Australia, and has lived in Austin for the last 16 years.

She says, “One of the many amazing things about my job at WUMP is getting to know all the children in all the classes and watching them learn and grow.”
