RESIDENT PROFILES

KEVIN ST. CLERGY Q: Where are you from originally? A: I was born in Houston, TX and grew up in San Antonio, TX. After that I moved to Beaumont, TX to finish my Master’s degree. I then moved to Portland, OR, then Atlanta, GA, then Albertville, AL and then spent some time living on the beach in Costa Rica. When the internet failed down there, I had to come back to reality and move back to TX. Q: How did you come to live at Rancho Sienna? A: I was out looking for a new home and found a floor plan I loved. That was it.

Q: Tell us about your family. A: It’s just me and my dog, Sonja. Q: What would you tell someone considering a move to Rancho Sienna? A: The neighborhood has some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. The homeowners association has been great too! Q: Favorite place to go out on a date? A: Costa Rica, I love taking quick trips down to the private beaches and laid back lifestyle. Q: What surprised you about moving/living here? A: Honestly, the homeowners association. I have heard so many horror stories about neighborhoods with them, but this one is inexpensive and great.

Q: What are your favorite things about the community? A: The walking trails and dog park. Sonja and I love them.
