Hometown: Houston, TX
Hobbies: Cooking (I have 3 boys!), Kickball, Snorkeling in Hawaii, Sunsets
Bees: I met Danny in 1992 and immediately started helping in bee yards. I have always loved animals and farm life, so despite growing up in Houston beekeeping was a natural fit for me.
Short Bio: I graduated from University of Texas at Austin in 1994 and immediately became a full time employee for BeeWeaver. The focus of my work has been in the office after our first son was born. Our family moved to Austin in 2006 and we expanded operations into the Texas Hill Country, bridging our bees over from the Brazos Valley to more Texans.
Hometown: Smyer, TX
Hobbies: Staying active, knitting and crafting, reading, hosting dinner parties, and playing with her dog, Murphy
