Degrees and Certifications:
Most people call me Ms. V. I grew up in a small, central Texas town, way out in the country. It was great, but I could not wait to work in the city, in one of those really tall buildings. It didn’t matter what I did, all that mattered was that I was in the city. So I played basketball for the University of North Texas and graduated with a business degree in International Marketing. When I landed my first real job, I was on the 32nd floor of the Trammell Crow building and worked for the man of the very same name. My second venture had me traveling with the NASCAR circuit and working with Interstate Batteries (I know what you’re thinking). But, I could not have dreamed of two better jobs or of more benevolent bosses. I spent almost 30 years in the corporate world, and yet I found exhilarating energy when I would volunteer at schools or kids camps. I then decided to become a teacher. Who knew Pre-K would be so much fun? My hobbies include traveling, reading and playing all sports.
