ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Ed Hernandez

WHERE I COME FROM

I am the father of three Dragons; Sam is a Varsity Swimmer and member of the class of 2021, Jack is an 8th grader at CMS, and PJ is a 4th grader at Rockenbaugh.

I am a member of the Budget and Finance Committee and a Carroll Educational Foundation board member. I am also active with our Championship Swim team. My wife Jennifer and I are passionate about Special Education advocacy and the launch of the Special Education Parent Advisory Committee.

I was born in Mexico City and I am the oldest of three siblings. I am blessed with a very large extended family.  I attended college on a scholarship and obtained my MBA supported by my employer while working full time; in my career I have lived in several locations in Mexico as well as Europe before moving to the US.

I moved to the US in 2002 when my employer sent me to a town of 9,000 people in western Nebraska to develop a new business with BNSF. After my 2 years in Nebraska we moved to Chicago, North Carolina, Kansas City and Seattle before moving to Southlake in 2016.

 

I grew up in a traditional Mexican family which prioritizes family and community over self. In my culture you protect all children and respect your elders and Jennifer and I have tried to instill these values in our boys.
