Meet The Team:  Darcy Esparza



I moved to Corpus Christi back in 1995 (yes, I am the oldest writer on the blog).  I was just 23 years old and had just graduated from the University of Florida (I grew up in Florida).  My first “big girl” job was a TV News producer at KRIS-TV.  For those of you who have lived here forever — this was the Dot Peterson, Mark Koelbel, and Dale Nelson era.  Yes, I worked with Dale Nelson (I doubt he remembers me).

For work – we eventually moved to San Antonio, then Fort Worth and even Holliday, Texas before moving back to the Coastal Bend in 2012.

I met my husband, Louie, in Corpus Christi almost immediately after moving to Texas.  When we got married in 1999, I became a “cool” step-mom to two beautiful daughters, Sierra & Sabrina (today they are 28 and 26).  A few years later, we expanded our family by two with Nina (17) and River (16).  I think that having a step-mom myself and then being a step-mom helped me to become a better parent to all four of our children.

I am also a grandmother to three kids – two granddaughters and one grandson.

Darcy with FamilyCOLLECTIVE

As a TV journalism major – I liked to write short, informative stories.  While my career changed paths from the news field, to math teacher and now a local business owner – I still enjoyed writing.  I became a writer for the blog just a few weeks before the 2020 pandemic.  I like connecting with the community of moms with storytelling and Instagram takeovers.
