I have a BA from Baylor University with a major in psychology. Put myself thru college working for a vet. Have had several careers throughout my life. Have been primary caregiver for my husband since he had a major stroke in December 2011.

Life-long wildlife and nature lover, new photographer. Took up the camera in August 2013 and fell in love with it. I found a new career and passion as a wildlife photographer and have had several local shows. My photos can be viewed at
