Why you want the office:   “The TCBA has played an important role in helping me to develop as an attorney and I would like to use my abilities and resources to give back to the organization and to serve the larger legal community.”

Why you think you are particularly qualified for the office:  “I’m in the process of finishing this year as Treasurer of the TCBA.  We’ve made some great changes with regard to the internal controls of the organization and making sure that the software we’re using efficiently provides the information we need regarding activities.  Both of these things help to ensure that the financial statements accurately reflect the activities of the organization.  I’ve previously served in other capacities for the TCBA and I have what I believe to be a well-rounded understanding of the finances of the organization.  Along with being an attorney, I began my working career as an accountant and have been a CPA for 18 years.  My accounting background is comprised of audit and tax work and has been supplemented by my role as a Certified Fraud Examiner.  My understanding of the TCBA as a whole, my abilities as CPA, and my legal knowledge make me well suited to continue working closely with our outstanding TCBA staff to produce financial statements that are clear and accurate.”

Other:  “I am the mother of two sons.  One has been successfully raised to adulthood (he’s married, has finished pharmacy School) and is the father of my first grandson (would you like to see pictures?). The second is a 15 year old freshman in high school and I am often prone to reminding him that he is not yet grown (his 6’2” height can be deceiving). I love being a mother and all the joy and challenges that it brings and I am continually amazed that I have been blessed with two boys who, I am absolutely sure, will leave this world better than they found it.”

I served as treasurer for my church home in Edmond for 3 years, managing a budget in excess of $500,000.
