Earlier this week, I made my way to San Antonio, TX for the first time. I’ve wanted to visit for years after seeing various enticing shows on the Travel Channel & Food Network and as a history buff, I totally wanted to visit the Alamo and Catholic missions that are around the famed city.


Well, this trip to San Antonio served two purposes; business & pleasure.

Business: I was presented on a University of Michigan career development program at the 2014 CUPA-HR (College and University Professional Association for Human Resources) annual conference.
Pleasure: Eating, sightseeing, & whatever else I could get into.

The conference was AWESOME and my presentation went very well. I pretty much wanted to kick my feet in mid air after it was over.  I present frequently but this was my first time nationally so I’m feeling swell about this feather in my cap.

Everything else on the pleasure side was what I wanted and more. San Antonio is such a beautiful city! Met some fun locals & many other conference attendees at networking events. Had amazing food but honestly, I over dosed on Tex-Mex and prickly pear margaritas.

Upon leaving, I felt energized & empowered from the conference & certainly planning to go back to discover more of what the city has to offer.

It was a great week & I rocked it out!
