I came to Fort Worth with my family while still in elementary school. I attended Southwest High School and later, The University of Texas at Austin. My dental "career" began in high school as I worked for an orthodontist in my neighborhood. He encouraged me to pursue my dream in this field. After college, I was accepted to Baylor College of Dentistry and recieved my degree in 1985.
I have been a member of the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association and Fort Worth District Dental Society ever since. I have been a participating dentist in our local "Save-A-Smile" program since 2004, which screens grade school kids and provides free services to those children in need. Prior to that, I enjoyed volunteering at the Masonic Home For Kids of Texas.
My husband, Doak and I were married in 1985. We have been blessed with two wonderful boys, Doak and Drew. We have enjoyed raising our boys in this area. We love to attend sporting events and love to travel.
