She is currently a tax repairer that works out of her home office. This means she helps other people do their taxes. She also teaches part time at San Jacinto College. She loves taking me and my brother to awesome places like amusement parks and water parks.

I am interviewing her on women's rights in the workplace in the 1970ís and how women were discriminated against. She has some great personal stories about gender discrimination that affected her greatly and she wants to share them with others to help stop women discrimination all together. She was discriminated against when she was working for H&R Block and her stories are ll about what she had to go through because of gender discrimination in her workplace.
