Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Texas has no shortage of real beaches, but very few – if any at all – are surrounded by massive limestone cliffs. Santa Elena Canyon, located in the iconic Big Bend National Park, features 1500-foot rock walls with a sandy alcove just steps away. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a picnic lunch while you soak up some rays!
