Howdy! I’m Aggie Class of ‘95. I received a BBA at Texas A&M University with an emphasis in Business Management. I reside in Fulshear, TX, outside of Katy. I am married to my husband of 24 years, David, and children, Lauren (21) and Kyle (17). I am a 2nd generation Aggie.
In 2012, my husband and I began our work in India to help rescue children from different forms of slavery: rock quarries, brothels, brick kilns, street begging. Those in our care we give the child a new life, a safe home, food, basic education, medical care and age appropriate vocational training. Over the last 9 years, we have helped support the rescue of over 25,000 children. Through our vocational training program, we have graduated over 900 into the workforce in India. We have personally given back over 1M from their salaries to help the mission. Aggies want to help Aggies in any way possible! It’s so amazing to see donations that come in from Aggies across the country, even the NFL.
I moved to College Station in 2008, and have been working at Texas A&M University since 2011. I am currently an associate research scientist at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. I joined TAMU Women’s club in 2015, and have been a member of the Contemporary book club, and the Arts & Culture groups since then. I have been the chair for the Arts & Culture group for the last four years.
I have made great friends through the TAMU Women’s club and enjoy meeting new members every year.
My hobbies are reading, sports, traveling with my family, and I enjoy art.
Howdy TAMU Women’s Club. I earned both a BS and MS from Texas A&M University in the 1980s and then returned several years later to work for the Texas A&M Transportation Institute.
That job, along with raising four children, kept me very busy until the kids started leaving the nest. As an empty nester, I decided to take on new challenges and activities, and joined the Women’s Club Gourmet Club and Book Club. I am honored to serve the organization this year as the Membership Chair.
I am originally from Venezuela and I moved to College Station in 2013 after my husband was hired at Texas A & M. Someone told him about the Women’s club. I started attending the newcomers group, the arts and culture and the wine testing group. The women’s club allowed me to meet friends and back then understand the culture of a new place. It is fun to meet people from different places, ages and interests. I am currently working on my PhD in geology and I am a proud mom of a four years old girl.
Kim Province Hagerty, class of '81 is serving as Treasurer. She is very qualified as a retired CPA having worked in the real estate sector for 40 years.
She moved to BCS 4+ years ago with plans to retire eventually. With a Texas Broker License for 40 years, she currently sells real estate as an Independent Broker and offers Interior Design Consulting locally.
Arriving to College Station from Moscow, I was a bit lost. I had my husband and children, but my friends were far away and my language skills made it difficult for me to make new friends. Joining the TAMU Women’s Club opened doors for me. In the TAMU Women’s Club you can find something for everyone no matter what their age, profession or country of origin. The different interest groups provide opportunities to learn new things and meet new people.
My new friends have given me wonderful travel ideas and exposed me to the arts in the area. Through the special programs and interest groups I have come to understand and love the culture and traditions of Texas and the U.S. The many new friends I have made have helped me polish my English skills and develop self-confidence. I especially enjoy the Arts and Culture Group because of my love of music and painting. The ladies in the Arts and Culture group were a big stimulus for me to open my own gallery in town, where I show art from around the world and organize classes for young and old.
I served as the President of TAMU Women’s Club in 2019 and this year I am coordinating programs along with Anna. I hope to meet you at one of our Women’s Club events!
Proud Former TAMU student (class of ’77) and first-time grandma, I moved back to B/CS in November 2013 with my husband after living on the East Coast since our college years. Originally from San Antonio, I have always loved the warmth and comradery of Aggieland. The TAMU Women’s Club exemplifies that with its welcoming attitude towards everyone.
While living on the East Coast, I was involved with many activities at our church, at Ft. Detrick and at our sons' schools. I love helping others and I guess that is why I enjoy delivering Meals on Wheels for the TAMU Women’s Club. My former employment also allowed me to help others. I worked for IMA World Health as an International Accountant. IMA is a faith based world health nonprofit organization, with the mission to build healthier communities by collaborating with key partners to serve vulnerable people around the world. The countries that I managed were Tanzania and South Sudan, Africa.
The interest groups such as the Couples Gourmet and the Community Outreach and Social Justice keep me motivated and busy learning new things and helping others. They also help me hone my gardening and cooking skills. I also serve as chair for the TAMU Women’s Club Scholarship Committee. TAMU Women’s Club currently are funding 5 scholarships to students from the Bryan College Station area with the plan to raise additional funds to fund a sixth scholarship or increase the funding to the current scholarships. If you are interested in helping on this committee please give me a call.
I am currently on the Friends of the Library Board for the Bryan College Station Libraries and also serve as Secretary. My husband and I attend St. Thomas Episcopal Church in College Station. If you are new to TAMU, join the Women’s Club; it is a great way to meet others who are associated with TAMU!

From Oil City, PA to Okinawa, Japan to College Station, Texas (and many homes in between as our family moved where the US Marine Corps sent us!) – my life has given me many opportunities to meet and socialize with women from all different backgrounds, ages, professions, and origins. As an Army veteran, wife, mother and Girl Scout leader, I know how important it is to have a group of friends with whom to share life’s ups and downs.
When I arrived in College Station in 2008, I was lonely. A friend recommended joining the TAMU Women’s Club as a way to meet people, since I was new to the area and did not know anyone. The club’s programs and interest groups were a good way to meet interesting women and learn about this community and TAMU. Since I now work full time at the Academic Success Center on campus, and manage a family of one A&M College student (the other graduated last December) and a husband who also works at A&M, the time I have for interest groups is limited. Currently I belong to the Tuesday evening book group. Someday, when I retire, I hope to participate in the Twisted Stitchers, Arts&Culture and the Garden Interest Group.
If you are new to this community and want to meet dynamic, intelligent, and interesting people then I urge you to join the TAMU Women’s Club.
