After Hours

"I like to stay on the move, so my time outside of work is usually spent traveling and exploring, both abroad and finding hidden gems within Houston. I look for any chance to be outdoors, and enjoy running, beach time, and golfing with my husband. I also enjoy rooting on the Saints and my hometown team, the Seattle Mariners."
