“Having people contact me after they passed their test or after their first sale and seeing them happy about their success.”

Q2. Amongst all of the experiences you’ve had since starting at Champions, which is your favorite story you can share with us?

“About a year ago, my rear car door accidentally slammed and almost ripped my slacks totally off my body at 8:20 am….I had to go knock on the door of several clothing stores before a golf store finally let me in to buy some pants.”

Q3. Ok, finally – name three things – little–known facts, random trivia, etc. – that we’d be surprised to learn about you.

  • I am a Cherokee and my Uncle was former Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation and served under Reagan as head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs.  
  • The Fort Worth tornado of March, 2000 gave me the opportunity to get into Real Estate when our building was damaged and my Oil and Gas company was subsequently bought out.

Q1. What has been the most rewarding part of your career with Champions School of Real Estate?

“Everything! I love being able to work with such an amazing group of staff and instructors at Champions School of Real Estate. I enjoy supporting our Champions team and being able to engage with the students each day. Across the state, staff and instructors truly care about our students and do a great job providing excellent customer service and instruction to anyone who calls or visits one of our campuses. A great team environment is evident in our day to day operations and everyone works together to make Champions one of the best places to work in Texas!”

Q2. Amongst all of the experiences you’ve had since starting at Champions, which is your favorite story you can share with us?

“One of my favorite experiences was our annual staff company retreat last year in Fort Worth. Each campus was given the task of putting together a skit to showcase their Champions team spirit. The staff did such an outstanding job of demonstrating their team spirit, with music, videos, songs and skits. I could not believe how creative and talented our staff members are across the state!  It was truly amazing to watch and everyone was able to have a great time celebrating their success and passion for the company.”
