What I’m Doing Now
Last Updated: January 7, 2024
Given the chaos of recent times, I believe businesses must be relentlessly resilient – ensuring both their systems and teams can thrive in volatility. By combining the CPA practice and coaching platform, I love that I get to help businesses strengthen both sides of that equation.
CPA & Business Coach
It also feels like coming home. In 1996, Elizabeth Ruble and TJ Leadbetter took a chance and hired a young accounting student to work in their growing CPA firm. I learned the basics of business accounting, payroll, and tax returns – forming the foundation of my career. I’ve always been grateful for their wisdom and encouragement, and I’m honored to continue their legacy.
I’m passionate because discovering ‘habit magic’ changed my life, and I’ve seen it happen for hundreds of folks. If you want see ‘magic’ too, try out Better Daily. In just 5 minutes a day, you’ll experience the power of keystone habits and positive change.
Founder, Shakas Up Sports NIL Collective
After an adventurous week supporting our Islander Basketball team in Dayton and Birmingham for the NCAA Tournament, we decided it was time to form an NIL Collective to support our athletes at Texas A&M – Corpus Christi.
Our mission is to enrich the student-athlete experience and create unforgettable moments for our fans. By fostering a supportive environment, we aim to empower athletes to excel on and off the field while offering fans unparalleled opportunities to engage with their favorite teams and players.
Board and Family Projects
I’m excited to serve on the Board of Directors for Rally Credit Union, for Central Motorcycle Roadracing Association, for Leadership Corpus Christi Alumni Association, and on the Advisory Board for the College of Business at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi.
The best part of 2020 was becoming a grandmother, and getting to celebrate having 5 generations for 94 days. Now I understand the joy my Nana felt for us, and I’ll forever carry the lessons she taught us.
Founder & Captain, Team Irie
As Irie Moto Racing Team, we compete in the CMRA Ultra Lightweight Endurance Series. At least one weekend a month, you can find us at the racetrack.
In 2021, our first year together as a team, we finished the season in 10th place overall and 2nd in the 300 Superstock class. For 2022, we upgraded to custom race suits from Bison Track, but plagued by mechanical challenges, we finished just outside the top ten. For 2023, we added veteran racer Andrew Forsythe to the team, and I shifted to Captain.
Our mission is to share our love of motorsports and adventure in an inspiring and educational way. And have fun! Connect with us on Instagram.
