When I sit back and reflect on it, my life almost seems like a dream. I wake up every day knowing I get to come to work and solve major problems for people who often times need help the most.
Much like the mineral owners we work with, there have been times when my husband Tim and I needed help. It should come as no surprise the people of Shreveport have been there for us time and again. I want to encourage you to join us in giving back to the organizations below who have given us so much.

My youngest son Miles was born physically and mentally handicapped. The doctors told us we needed to send him away. We promised Miles he would always be with us. It hasn’t always been an easy journey, but we’ve had a little help from a few Holy Angels along the way.
Holy Angels is a residential and training campus for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. To say the organization has changed our lives would be an understatement. From challenging parents to empowering the disabled, Holy Angels brings skills and hope to families who might have given up otherwise.
My oldest son, Conner, took to boxing at an early age. It wasn’t long after he saw his first fight that he wanted to throw on some gloves and throw a strong right hook. Tim went searching for a local gym and found a gem.
Shreveport Youth Boxing Club is a 501(c) organization dedicated to keeping kids off the street by teaching them the sport of boxing. It instills the principles of discipline and hard work in kids while inspiring them to reach for the stars.
