I went to St. Edward's University in Austin, TX and earned a BS in Criminal Justice (1996-2001). Then I earned a Master of Liberal Arts degree in (2001-03), also at St. Edward's.
Later, I thought I'd try for a PhD at The University of Texas at Dallas. I was a Teacher's Assistant to Dr. Alex Argyros and I also taught a Rhetoric courses, both positions were for one year. Then, due to family and health concerns, I moved back to Austin but not before earning another MA from UT- Dallas (2004-2008).
