I began working for ASCA in December of 2012, I was referred by a good friend of mine, I am thankful I applied and was given the opportunity. I am a Bryan, Texas native, I love it here, it's not too big or too small, it's a perfect place to live and raise my children. I graduated from Bryan High School and Hammond-Oliver Health Sciences Academy, Class of 2003. I have also completed the Certified Nursing Assistant program at Blinn College.
I am a mother of two, I have a daughter named Faith, she is 11 years old and started her first year of Junior High this year and my son Kaden is 7 years old and is in first grade.
Our little family has one pet, he is a guinea pig and my children named him Thunder. He acquired his name, due to the fact that when we purchased him it was raining and thundering outside. He does have quite a personality; he enjoys sitting on our enclosed porch and eating! When my daughter walks anywhere near his cage he goes bananas for her attention. Anytime he hears the cabinet door open or close, that houses his food he squeaks with joy!! He is a bit of character and entertainer for my kiddos.
As for my duties here with the ASCA business office, I calculate and enter points for Conformation, I also enter in Obedience scores and Junior points, as well. I am responsible for sanctioning and mailing judge's books to the respected host clubs and providing judges and juniors with required rulebooks. I recently was able to add affiliate club renewals, to my yearly agenda. I find my responsibilities rewarding and I love being in an environment where I am around wonderful, caring and helpful coworkers. I enjoy being able to connect with individuals here in the United States, as well as around the world. One highlight this year, was being able to attend one day of Nationals, while it was being held here in Bryan, Texas. It was nice to be able to watch the other venues, such as Stock and Agility, but also to watch Conformation as well. I loved being able to meet individuals in person, that I have gotten to know over the years by phone. It really a pleasure to know I am a part of ASCA and the many members who make my job so rewarding.
