I grew up in the “Cowboy Capital of the World” Bandera, Texas. I have been in the dental field as a dental assistant since 2010. My favorite thing to do in San Antonio is to feed the giraffes and ride the train with my daughter at the zoo.
I am from Southeast Texas originally, but I moved to San Antonio six years ago to pursue my career in dental hygiene. My education includes a bachelors in biology from Oklahoma state, a bachelors in dental hygiene from UT Health Science San Antonio, and a masters in aging and dementia studies from Texas State. I adore San Antonio and can find fun wherever I go! My favorite things to do here are spend time by the rivers and try out new restaurants.
