I came to work for the Texas Horsemen's Partnership in March of 2001. It has been a great learning experience. There is a lot to be learned in the racing industry. I am usually the person you speak to first when you call in to the Austin office. I assist everybody here in the office when needed.

I have recently learned the horsemen's bookkeeper system, and I can now assist horsemen when they call in about their accounts. This includes writing checks, making transfers for stakes payments, checking account balances, and other necessary functions.

I feel very fortunate that I work in an industry which is also my passion. I fell in love with horse racing in 1991 after my first visit to a racetrack. I began working for the Texas HBPA in 1994 and have seen the organization grow along with racing in Texas.

I am Controller for the Texas Horsemen's Partnership and as such, I am responsible for financial matters concerning the Partnership as well as oversight of all purse funds in the state. Along with my duties as Controller for the THP, I am President of the Horsemen's Bookkeeper board of directors and Administrator of the Texas Horsemen's Assistance Fund. These three entities each provide vital services and benefits to the horsemen racing in Texas.

I live with my husband, Sonny, on a farm near Elgin and have four teenage children and an new baby girl.

If I can answer any questions you might have about your horsemen's bookkeeper account and the benevolence organization or be of any assistance to you, please feel free to send me an e-mail.
