My wife Maria and I moved to Grapevine and into the GCNA in 20003 and little did we know how lucky we were to move to the best neighborhood in the metroplex!
While I am from San Francisco and Maria is from New York, we have lived here longer together than any other place. We love it here and would never consider moving (unless forced to do so!)…
Volunteering for us is a great honor in that we get to know others that have the capability to give back to the community and make a positive difference, by choice!
I encourage you to find time to get involved with the neighborhood. There are plenty of opportunities that will allow you to volunteer at any level. Getting involved is a way for you to show your appreciation and enthusiasm for our neighbors and neighborhood. Glade Crossing has demonstrated that it is a beautiful and great place to live and we need your help to keep that legacy going.

My lovely wife Jan and I have been delighted to be part of the GCNA ever since we had our Pulte home built in 1993. I still remember the fields and empty lots as homes were being built when we moved here.
I was born in Jersey City, NJ; grew up in the Pittsburgh area, and lived in Chicago before moving to Texas in 1987. I’m a veteran and an alumnus of Penn State and Northwestern Universities. Although I expected to stay here only a couple years, I quickly grew to love Texas, the terrific people and the positive environment. Jan is originally from Atlanta; we met through a mutual friend and have been married since 1991. I worked for American Airlines for 24 years, and now work from home for American Express Business Travel Consulting.
Although Jan and I have not been blessed with children, I relish my role as the favorite uncle and enjoy visits from our nephews, nieces, relatives and friends. You probably have seen me and/or Jan walking our dogs around the neighborhood. Over the years we’ve had Huskies, an Australian Shepherd and now a German Shepherd.
I am honored to be a part of our neighborhood association and treasure the many neighbors we’ve met over the years who have made this a great place to live.

I was born and raised in Texas and earned my degree at TCU in Fort Worth. I met my husband Darren at TCU and after we got married in 2007, we moved to Grapevine and rented a house up by the lake. In 2009, we were expecting our first child and wanted a house of our own in which to raise a family.
We knew we wanted to stay in Grapevine and we fell in love with the Glade Crossing neighborhood! We now have three kiddos and love raising them here. I joined the GCNA Board in January 2013 as the Social Chair and am so excited to have the opportunity to serve in this wonderful community!

I am an Ohio transplant to Texas for the last 16 years. I have lived in GCNA for 7 years and love this tight-nit community! After working in corporate American for 13 years and having my first child I decided to find something with more flexibility. I currently run my own DREAM VACATIONS franchise as a travel agent. My husband Clint and our children all have a love of travel.If you are new to the neighborhood WELCOME and I look forward to meeting you soon!
My husband Tory and I moved to Glade Crossing in February 2010 from Hurst, we have now owned 2 different houses in GCNA. We decided we can't actually move out of this neighborhood after all and moved back. We have two beautiful daughters, Avery and Camden. Our circus is complete with our dogs, Aero and Angus.
I grew up in Alvarado, south of Fort Worth, as a former country girl, I love the neighborhood and the convenience to virtually any part of the metroplex. Another favorite of the area is the easy access to so many great parks and most importantly is the great since of community and wonderful people in our neighborhood. We certainly have something unique here! I have been on the board since 2012 and love being part of this great neighborhood and helping keep all our neighbors informed.

In 2008 Brian and I bought our home in GCNA off Ainsworth Cir! We love this neighborhood and community it has built.
This is my first time on the HOA board and I am happy to be the maintenance chair. Go easy on me!
We have a 4 1/2 year old son and an almost 3 year old daughter. If the sun in shining, you can find us outside playing. Come join us!

I am originally from East Texas and moved here in 2002 to attend UT Arlington where I earned a degree in Communications Advertising.
My husband and I moved into GCNA in 2013. We have a sweet and precious 1 year old daughter and 2 dogs. We bought a house in this neighborhood because we appreciated how well taken care of it was.
We've grown to love the area and the people around us. I look forward to meeting more of you!
Website and Social Media
My family and I have long been fans of Grapevine and finally decided to move here in May 2012. We are so glad we did.
My husband and I are both in IT, and we have three boys, so we'll be a GES family for quite some time. You'll probably see us out jogging or bike riding, as we love to take advantage of the awesome trails in our community parks.
I held the position of Welcoming Chair for almost 4 years, and I'm currently working hard to keep our online presence looking good. I'm very excited about the future of Glade Crossing and hope you are, too!
Please feel free to email me with suggestions for the website! I'm also taking blog submissions.

My husband, Jason, and I are born and raised Floridians, and 3 years ago we decided to try something new and move to Texas for a job opportunity. We fell in love with the Grapevine community instantly, and the rest is history. When our daughter was ready to start kindergarten, I drove through Glade Crossing one day in the late afternoon, when the moms and dads where walking to pick up their kids and instantly told my husband this is where we have to live! I won't settle for anywhere else; this is where we belong. I couldn't ask for a better school or neighborhood for our family to be a part of. That is why I am excited about the opportunity to assist the board in keeping our neighborhood safe and plugged into the community.
I own my own business, Ansley Beth Photography, which specializes in High School Senior Portraits. I am always working from home during the day. I get to meet so many families in our local and outlying communities, and that is so wonderful too. I love getting to meet our neighbors, so please reach out to me if you need anything or have any ideas on how to keep our neighborhood safe!
