Born and raised local girl from Gainesville married to Danny Wolf I have a son, Vincent Simmons, and a bonus daughter, Kendal Wolf. We have 12 dogs, 6 horses, 3 goats and too many chickens and cows to count. We own a dairy farm in Gainesville where we sell farm fresh, whole milk. We attend mass at Saint Mary’s Parish in Gainesville where Danny is an usher and a 4th degree KC. I teach Children’s Liturgy, and I’m a member of the Altar Society and Catholic Daughters. Outside of church and school, I am a member of Alpha Chi Omega Sorority, and I am a Mentoring Texas Exes Alumni. Hook ’em! Danny and I also have our real estate licenses and volunteer in the community on various boards. We love our family time together at home, but also love to travel and see our wonderful country. WE STAY BUSY! As a mom and educator, I feel that instilling self-confidence, self-worth and service are essential core elements to our kids in 5th grade. I give my kiddos lots of love and understanding and I see and feel the moments when they pull away (sniff, sniff). Bullying is a big No-No in my class, and I go to great lengths to make sure everyone is treated with RESPECT!
