His committee-member roles include the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo for eleven years, as well as serving the past three years as the current secretary of the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD Community Leadership Committee.

She has been a principal for 23 years with tenures at Frazier, Metcalf and Bang Elementary schools in the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD.
