I grew up in Austin, Texas and after high school I moved to College Station, Tx where I received my Associate of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from Blinn College and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Community Health from Texas A&M University- WHOOP! I have now been practicing for 5 years as a Dental Hygienist and love working with all of my patients! College Station is a place I hold dear to my heart, but I recently relocated to Lufkin where my husband works, and we just tied the knot in May! I am so excited to now call Lufkin my home because it is great place full of friendly people!
Our team has welcomed me with open arms to the office and I have enjoyed my time here getting to know everyone and meeting patients. Outside of work, I enjoy being with my husband, family and friends, reading, and traveling. We have two corgis, Hondo and Louis who keep us very busy as well!
I started working at the Dental Center of Lufkin 17 years ago after I graduated from Tyler Jr. College with an associate’s degree in applied sciences. One of the things that I love about my job is helping patients to understand their dental needs, and helping to create relationships so that they have a pleasant experience in our office.
When not in the office, you will find me with my husband, Joey and daughter, Atlanta. I have a passion for serving others in our community with my Jeep club and church.
I am truly blessed to have been a member of The Dental Center of Lufkin team for 30 plus years. I grew up in Hemphill, Texas and attended Stephen F. Austin and Lamar University to acquire an associate degree in Applied Science to become a Dental Hygienist. During my 40 years as a Hygienist I have been a member of ADHA and many of our local Dental study groups. The constants in my life are faith, family, friends, animals, and a love for smiles! It is my goal to provide the best of care for our entire dental practice with the latest knowledge and technology available while extending a warmth that only comes from compassionate care. We look forward to creating many awesome smiles for many years to come!
My husband Clint and I have been married 39 years. We have the pleasure of being parents to Casey and husband Chris and Cane and wife Katie and our wonderful grandchildren, Kenna and Brooks. In my free time, I love being with my family usually outdoors at the beach or mountains. My family also enjoys hunting and rodeoing!
I grew up in a little town called Onalaska and spent part of my childhood in Colorado as well. I moved to Lufkin 3 years ago. I love my job as a dental assistant, but I love the amazing people that I work with the most. Our office feels just like family and it is great to be able to come to a work environment that makes you feel that comfortable.
Dentistry makes me happy because I love seeing my patients’ faces when we can help and address their problems. I want them to always feel like they are in the right hands with our office. I hope that all my patients can achieve the smile that they deserve. I want to stay in the dental field long term and would like to eventually pursue a career as a dental hygienist. I currently live in Pollok with my husband, Dustin and our daughter, Rylee.
Front Office Staff
I have called East Texas my home for 25 years and shortly after moving here I started working in the dental field and haven’t looked back since. I have worn many hats in the dental office including receptionist, scheduler and hygiene coordinator. I am thrilled to now have the role as office manager at the Dental Center Lufkin. I love being a part of a great team, especially a team that cares about our patients. I have always wanted to be in health care and found a satisfying and rewarding career in the dental field.
I enjoy spending time with my husband, 2 daughters, son-in-law, and grandsons. My grandkids, Mason and Kolten, call me Mammy and bring joy to my life every day. They have my heart and I love spending as much time with them as I can. I also enjoy traveling and watching reality TV.
I was born in Lufkin, but raised 30 minutes away in Zavalla, TX. In 2010 my husband, Jeffrey and myself moved to Oklahoma. It was here that I first started my dental career in 2014 where I worked as a front desk receptionist. We enjoyed our time in Oklahoma, but in 2017 we decided that we were ready to come back to Texas. I was very excited to get the opportunity to work at The Dental Center of Lufkin and be so close to home. I love being able to welcome all the patients into the office and assist them in any way possible.
My husband and I have been married for 12 years. I have 2 beautiful daughters, Ashley and Courtney as well as 2 amazing granddaughters, Shaynne and Hanna. We love spending time with family and friends as well as being at the lake and trying new restaurants. I am happy to be back home in Texas again and call such a great practice my home!
