Her Bachelor's Degree in Communications from The University of Texas, education from Texas A&M University, and many years of professional success outside of the veterinary field are valuable assets to AADC. Her fortes are providing clear and thorough information and developing bonds with our pet owners. Away from the clinic, she enjoys playing tennis, caring for the family pets, and mothering beloved sons, Luke and Blake.
