    936-632-6611

    I am new to the automotive business, I have spent the past twelve years in long term care. I love helping people and getting to meet new people but I needed a change. The best part about the automotive business to me is finding the perfect car for someone and knowing that I did everything that I could to help them and make sure they had all their questions answered and they love their new purchase. 

    I am the proud Momma of two little boys who are my world!
