Our Story

After 21 years in the consumer products industry, I made the decision to take off my corporate hat, and leverage the marketing knowledge I gained selling brands such as Gatorade, Bud Light and Campbell’s Soup.

I found an entrepreneurial spirit and passion I never knew existed working with small business owners, and running local community programs.
I am a proud graduate of Kingwood High School, and Texas Tech University.

I have been blessed to work one on one with leaders from Fortune 500 companies; Local businesses and Start ups.


In August of 2017 our home and business flooded four feet during Hurricane Harvey.  In a 48 hour period; we packed up what were able to save and moved our family and 100lb Rottweiler North of Austin to Horseshoe Bay, Texas. 

At the time we joked that our life would be referred to as “Before” and “After” Harvey.  I never dreamed how true that would become!

Everyday I feel blessed to be embraced by the Horseshoe Bay, Community.  The support and love the community has shown is what inspires me everyday! 

The Market Place began as a Facebook Group; Grew to a website; and officially became a store front in April 2019!

The Market Place, Located in Horseshoe Bay, Texas was a vision I had years ago to support and feature brands of all sizes; and create a gathering place for folks to come and visit.
Featuring Comfort Colors graphic T-Shirts, and top designer brands such as JAG Jeans; XCVI; Boxercraft; Maria Shireen and more.
Shop Resort Fashion and hometown apparel.
Shop Girls or Guys.
Shop Accessories; Bags and Clothes.
We are not sure what the next chapter will bring…… But it’s going to be one heck of a ride.

Be Fearless my friends!
