A native of Henderson, Texas, Cindi first pursued her love of dance through competitive gymnastics with Rita Price and the Henderson Energetics Gymnastic Team.  After graduating from Henderson High School, Cindi went on to Kilgore College where she danced for two years with the World Famous Kilgore College Rangerettes (’83-’85), performing with Bob Hope, Donny Osmond, Rock Hudson, and Ann Jillian.  Through her connections with the Rangerettes, Cindi became employed with NCA’s SUPERSTAR Drill Team Camps under the direction of Mike Miller.  After graduation from Kilgore College, Cindi continued her studies at the University of Texas in Austin to receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and a minor in English.  She also holds a teaching certificate from The University of Texas at Tyler and is currently in her twenty-seventh year of teaching British literature, technical writing, and psychology in the Texas public school system.
