I am a native Iowan who longed for more than a simple Midwestern life. I went to school in France for two years and fell in love with the people, culture, and language. Since I am a crazy woman I moved to Texas–land of Spanish-speakers–after graduation to teach French in a high school. 13 years in public school taught me a lot and gave me many leadership opportunities. In 2012, my husband and I decided to take a risk and both teach part-time so we could try and build up our fencing club. It’s been a long, challenging road. We had to give up a lot and have eaten a LOT of beans and rice in the meantime. But the simpler life has been good for us. And now the club is growing…and growing…and growing.
Our club, Cutting Edge Fencing, is the only fencing club in Tarrant County, Texas. I love that we bring something unique to the Fort Worth area. It’s a joy to watch this great sport transform the lives of so many people. I can’t wait to see what we accomplish together as a fencing family.
