Living in Block House Creek for over twenty years has been an opportunity to watch our neighborhood grow and to see the many new and different issues we face. When considering a Board position, I began attending meetings and signed on as an Architectural Committee member. As a result, I have been fortunate to meet many amazing people striving to protect our interests as homeowners. Considering my previous experience in working with diverse groups of people, on behalf of residents, it is my desire is to supplement the Association’s educational efforts across a broad range of subjects. I look forward to being a part of this Board as we continue to grow and change.

Sandy retired from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) ten years ago where she served as a parole officer, auditor, contract monitor supervisor, and Assistant Director in Warrants and Review and Release Processing. In addition, she served two different legislators during two sessions at the Capitol. After retirement, she began concentrating on volunteer activities.

Having lived in Block House Creek for years, I have seen our community grow and improve. As a member of the Board of Directors, I want to continue to make improvements in community relations and to work with the Municipal Utility District to continue to beautify our surroundings.
