Kim Potts | OA Manager

My name is Kim Potts and I have been involved in promoting outdoor education programs across the state of Texas since 2009. My dad introduced me to the outdoors at a very young age and I did not realize until I got older, what a wonderful blessing and gift he had given me. When I feel myself getting overwhelmed with work, family, or just life in general, a good hog hunt, fishing trip, or visit to my deer stand can quickly provide the opportunity for my body, mind, and soul to realign. Life IS better outdoors!
