There’s No Place Like Home


There’s No Place Like Home

Our most precious resource is the group of people who surround us on a nightly basis.

As the calendar year closes, reflecting on what we have, where we are and where we want to be is an annual tradition but in many ways, none so meaningful as this year. Our families are truly blessed even with all the challenges we are experiencing. As we say goodbye to 2020 soon, our hope is for an optimistic new year for our homes, businesses and each other.

The holidays encourage a sense of togetherness and appreciation for the people in our lives. During these times which have tested every one us in multiple ways, this holiday season may be even more special than previous years.
Here in the Rio Grande Valley, family is our greatest treasure. We press forward to do what is best for those under our roof and beyond. Our work ethic is to never let challenges overcome our drive, determination and spirit to succeed. Looking ahead to 2021, we’ll face obstacles but nothing will stop us for providing for our families.
From your positive news team at VBR, our wish for you and your family especially during this holiday season is enjoy time with your loved ones and to reflect on what truly matters most. Let’s spread the reason for the season and add some cheer to those around us. Our VBR crew is thankful for the difference you make to prosper our region, both economically and its quality of life.
We are one. We are the Rio Grande Valley.

My thirty years in the media world has primarily focused on marketing, advertising and writing. This industry is my passion. I have been blessed to serve customers with marketing consulting, advertising concepts, video production and promotion of all forms - broadcast, print and digital. My occupation is a fun job but not work. The opportunity to put clients and customers together awakens me early. Learning clients and their businesses enables me to create effective multimedia advertising campaigns. My media life led me to deep South Texas in 2004 to co-found The Business Times of the Rio Grande Valley and then the Valley Business Report in 2009. This south Louisiana native is proud to call the Rio Grande Valley my home.
