Community Manager
p: 512-301-7770
Hey, y'all! I have served as your community manager since September 2022 and have really enjoyed getting to know beautiful Belterra. I handle the business side of the operations for Belterra but have been known to pop up at events, taking pictures, wearing crazy hats, and dancing with kiddos. I love all aspects of community management!

I am originally from a small farming town west of Corpus Christi, TX. Barely a "wide spot in the road," as my grandpa used to say, Banquete, TX, has a blinking yellow light at the highway intersection and a few stop signs scattered throughout. I didn't grow up in the town (I use that term loosely) but enjoyed a rural childhood on a small, 10-acre farm. We raised cows, chickens, and pigs and enjoyed fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden.

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, including my husband, Paul, a former Marine who now tests and launches rockets for a living, and our two awesome kids, Allison (10 years old) and Benjamin (5 years old), and my mother, who also lives with us. I also love listening to true-crime podcasts, crafting and creating, and exploring our great state.

If I haven't met you yet, I look forward to soon! My cell phone number 737-233-1796. Feel free to call or text.

Lifestyle Director

Hi everyone! In case you don't know me, I'm Byron Harris, your Lifestyle Director here in Belterra! Or better known as the "fun guy"! I'm responsible for putting on all of the events and activities that take place in the Community, as well as your go-to for amenity reservations! I will have served this wonderful Community for three years in September; time flies when you're having fun!

I am originally from the St. Louis area (GO CARDS!) and graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2016 with a degree in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism (M-I-Z!). I have an extensive background in the Events/Parks and Recreation field, which happens to also be one of my favorite shows of all time; go figure!

When I'm not in the office or at an event, I'm spending time with my family: my wife, Jada, and our 14-month-old daughter, Madison (She keeps us very busy and entertained), binge watching new shows, exploring different food trucks/restaurants around Austin, or looking for new vinyl for my record player (Send recommendations my way, we love all food/music!)

If I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting you yet, I encourage you to swing by the office or check out one of our awesome events and say HI!
Darla Merket
Administrative Coordinator

Hi everyone! In case you don’t know me, I’m Darla Merket – the Administrative and Community Standards Coordinator here at Belterra. I am the 6th of seven girls (yes, seven of us!) and am a true-blue, born-and-raised Texan. Midland was my home for 34 years and where I raised a blended family of five children. For 22 years, I was a Registered Respiratory Therapist and spent TONS of time with the kids, our show steers, and stock shows. If you stop by the management office, you will see lots of “cow” decorations as a nod to one of my favorite animals on earth. After divorcing, I wandered my way down to the Austin area to put my rusty administrative skills to work, and I have been here for five years, basking in all the amazing things that make up Central Texas. My favorite place to be is in the Rocky Mountains; my favorite food is a big, juicy cheeseburger; my favorite dessert is blueberry (or maybe peach) cobbler a-la-mode, and my favorite color is Texas’s big, beautiful blue sky. When I’m not hard at work for the great people of Belterra, I like to garden, rock hunt, read, and travel with my Chug (Chihuahua/Pug) Mindie (pictured) to visit my grandbabies. If I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting you in the last year, please come by and say HI!
