Raised on Twin Oaks Golf Course in Duncan, Oklahoma, Nena learned at a very young age to love land that grows into a very prosperous business. Her parents had a vision and built the course in 1961 which she started helping at the young age of 6 while learning a very strong work ethic. She graduated Marlow High School in 1974 and shortly thereafter obtained her Insurance and Investment Licenses after moving to Texas in 1982. She established 4 separate insurance office locations under 2 corporations as well as producing personally in insurance sales. Throughout her insurance career she pursued numerous hours of higher education including becoming an adjunct teacher for the Successful Money Management course at a Junior College. Nena volunteered within the insurance association and served on numerous committees on a local, state and national level, attending several hearings with the Senate in Washington, DC. She also wrote a weekly financial column for the Corpus Christi Caller Times for several years.
Nena loves animals, especially Arabian horses, which she has trained, shown and cared for over many years. She was blessed with a trip of a life time by her mother to accompany her on an African Safari where they visited 5 countries in South Africa over a month. She is also an avid diver and has been on numerous dive trips all over the world. Nena has 3 children, 8 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren which she loves to spend quality time with. She also loves teaching them to ride horses and enjoys the beaches on their vacations together.
