I am a native of Taylor. I was born and raised in Taylor. I graduated from Taylor High School. Once a Duck, Always a Duck! Go Ducks!!
I married Manuel Chavana. We have been blessed with 2 sons, Manny and wife Celina, Mario and wife Tracy. We have two grandchildren, Jazlynn and Kayden.  I have worked for EWCC 27 years.  I am secretary to the Director of EWCC. I enjoy sewing in my spare time and traveling. I also love to cook for my family especially at birthdays and holidays.  Most of all, I enjoy the getaways Manuel and I take every year to Playa De Carmen, Mexico.
