Angela was born in Alice, Texas, and grew up attending Alice schools. She’s broken the family cycle by graduating from high school and is currently a student at Coastal Bend College-Alice. Angela B’s tenacity in climbing the ladder in the south Texas oil/gas industry makes her a unique Dream Achiever, especially when considering her enduring repeated lay-offs, which was typical of the industry prior to 2011. Angela continues to work full-time in Alice while studying toward her short-term goal of receiving an Associate degree in Science. Following that, she plans to transfer to Texas A&M University-Kingsville in pursuit of a Bachelor’s degree in Education. Her ultimate goal is to become a science instructor at the middle school level. In addition to work and study, Angela B meets the demands of lovingly raising a pre-teen daughter and demonstrating a lot of positive energy and a can-do attitude in dealing with unpredictable events in life.
