Find Your Path Making My Home in Rockport Have you ever realized the path you’re on isn’t the path you want to keep taking? We can make decisions with a vision of the future in mind, but as we get further along, we realize the decisions might not take us where we want to be. When we look around and realize we aren’t happy with where we are going, what do we do? To me, the answer is clear: We find a new path. I started college with the goal of becoming a psychology major. I’ve always enjoyed talking to people and learning how others view the world. But as I went along down the path of psychology, it occurred to me I wasn’t enjoying the major at all. Seeing me take a step back, my then-boyfriend, John, suggested I work at his father’s dental office until I found my new path. Imagine my surprise when I realized dentistry was exactly where I wanted to be! I started to work as a dental assistant in 2004, the same year John and I got married. The hands-on side of dentistry really appealed to me, and after a few years, I went back to college. Equipped with a bachelor’s in biology and a minor in chemistry, I started dental school. While in dental school, John and I decided that we wanted to start a family - we were so excited to be parents! Even though it made dental school more challenging, we were up for it, and are so happy with our decision. Duncan is the light of my life, and we were so excited to welcome his brother, Logan, into our family shortly after graduation! I’d only been practicing as a full-fledged dentist for about a year before my family took a vacation down to Rockport in 2014. We’re big fans of the beach, but there’s something special here in Rockport you can’t find anywhere else on the Gulf. Falling in love with the atmosphere and the laid-back community, we started visiting the area every year after that. I

grew up in East Texas, but when I began to look for my own practice to buy, I set my sights on Rockport. That’s how I met Dr. Valerie Drake. She introduced me to Sabal Dentistry, and I was happy to buy into the practice! Currently, my husband is a stay-at-home dad with our two boys, and all three of them love our new home. All of you have been so welcoming, and I look forward to getting to know all of you better, to raising my kids in this community, and to being invested here for a long time.
