Her properties are in three historic Fort Worth neighbors and the youngest property she owns is 100 years old. She has been recognized for her restoration and stewardship.
She is also an award-winning photojournalist and writer. Her first book was published in late 2019 and is the result of spending two years documenting the lives of thirteen women working on Texas ranches.
