Child Nutrition Director

Navarro ISD

I have over 10 years of Child Nutrition experience.  This profession has opened up many opportunities for me in my career path including teaching for TASN and education service centers.  I have been involved with CTSFSDA for many years and have served on the board in all capacities, but am currently serving as Treasurer.  This organization has contributed to my career growth not only with the many educational resources but also by the networking it provides for all.

Food Service Director

Thorndale ISD


As director for over 10 years, I oversee all operations of the TISD’s Child Nutrition program. I have been apart of the Thorndale ISD family for 14 years and have more than 30 years of food service experience in the private and public sector. I have been a member of the C.T.S.F.S.D association since 2017 and at this time I am currently holding the Secretary position until 2020.

I was raised in Taylor, TX, but have called Thorndale my home for 25 years. I am the proud mother of 3 daughters and 2 grandchildren. I have a passion for my job and love working with people. I know the success of CN is due to my team and all of their hard work. My love for the child nutrition program is evident in everything I do & I am always trying to motivate employees and campus teams to do their best, provide great customer service and offer high-quality meals for all students at Thorndale ISD.
