I began playing poker 12 years ago. I was a server at Ranchos Club- a local card house and I had to fill in because there weren’t enough players to fill the tables. Since I like to be good at what I do, I started to study and learn more about the game.

I’m a recreational poker player, but it doesn’t feel like rec because I’m super competitive.

I enjoy both tournaments and cash game for different reasons.
I am the most Honest poker player you will ever meet. I value honesty more than anything in life.

I enjoy life, I love to have fun and try new things. There is not much I dislike about anything.


I love being a wife and mother. My husband and kids are the most important thing in my life. Family is everything.

The biggest related to life lesson I have learned through poker is that everybody is out for themselves at the poker table, and it works like that in life too for the most part. People have to look out for their own well-being in order to do well in poker and in life.
