Long married to a former Marine, Sharon and her husband have four children and seven grandchildren scattered from coast to coast. She created a business, Wall to Wall Designs, which primarily did upholstered walls and cabinets in the Fort Worth/Dallas metroplex and in Austin. Another part of her professional career has been in the capacity of support all the way from a special-ed pre-school teacher’s assistant to administrative assistant for the Vice-Chancellor of Academic Affairs for the University of Texas System. Now that Sharon is retired, she volunteers to drive cancer patients to their appointments, help coordinate the drivers for the American Cancer Society, serve on the Lake Travis ESD Citizen’s Advisory Committee, knit and crochet, and loves listening to people’s stories. Being an identical twin and part of a very large family, she grew up with a sense of being part of a community. Sharon's goal for BeeWomen is to bring the Bee Cave community beyond the neighborhood friendly hand wave.
Erika moved to Bee Cave in late 2016 from Guadalajara, Mexico where her family spent nearly 5 years on an expat assignment. She and her husband have moved around quite a bit over the years and are happy to settle down in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. They have 2 teenagers (a son and a daughter) and two canine "children." After many years in the corporate world and an entrepreneurial venture, Erika is now an independent consultant focused on business intelligence and decision support. She enjoys golf, exercise, a good road trip and interesting conversations. At a time when it seems virtually impossible to "unplug," disconnection is becoming more a threat to our wellbeing as individuals and society. She sees BeeWomen as a way to build a stronger, healthier community founded on real relationships that provide support and connections.
Cynthia is originally from the Rio Grande Valley. After marrying her high school sweetheart, they moved to Michigan. While in Michigan, they had two kids, and she helped support the family while her husband attended Michigan State University. Eight years later, they chose to live closer to home, so they moved to Houston. Her educational journey began with a B.S. in Education from the University of Houston and a Master’s in Ed. Admin. and an Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Texas – Brownsville.
In 1991 she moved to Austin to work at the Texas Governor’s Office as Executive Director of the Governor’s Commission for Women and Volunteer Programs and on legislation as the Executive Director of the Senate Hispanic Caucus. In 2000, Cynthia returned to the Rio Grande Valley to work as an educator in a public school. She retired as a University of Texas Rio Grande Valley college professor.
In early 2022, Cynthia moved to Bee Cave to be closer to her children and part of this vibrant community. She loves playing pickleball and golf, fishing, and traveling. She is happy to be a member of this exciting group of women and hopes to make a difference in our Bee Cave community.
