Occasionally, you will see me at the front desk and you might speak with me when calling the office. I have only been with the practice since September 2015 and I am very blessed to be a member of the team and I look forward to being here for many years to come. I have been in the medical field for 18 years and I enjoy what I do.

I am a Nacogdoches native and grew up in Central Heights where I attended school and graduated in 1978. When not at work, I love spending time with my family, listening to music and singing in the choir at University Baptist Church. I am married to a wonderful man and I’m the proud mother of two son’s and four beautiful granddaughter’s.
