Angela makes her home on an exclusive lake in Texas, nestled between Houston's elite vacation estates. As a global executive in sports, Angela jet-sets frequently throughout the United States, Canada, and Japan. She also mantains a second home in the Southern California area to accomodate her LA business demands and to be near her son attending college at Loyola Maryount University.
As the wife of a surgeon, Angela also keeps a high-level life style filled with entertaining in her beautiful home and event appearances. It's a fast paced life with four children, as well as serving on multiple boards and foundations, but she wouldn't have it any other way.
Angela's lifestyle walks a balance of a female executive, working in the world of beautiful people in a cut-throat industry versus the family life of a doctors wife raising her kids. She is no stranger to girl dynamics and the power struggles the cheer industry brings, it's all a part of her days' work.
