Registered Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in Paris, Texas. I started my dental career in 2007 as a dental assistant, then wanting to advance my career in a field I fell in love with I became a hygienist in 2011. After working nine years in general practice the opportunity became available and I was blessed to begin working with the amazing team here. I look forward to helping our patients accomplish their goals and provide the highest standard of care. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jared and son, Ty. We live on a ranchette half way between Paris and Rockwall that provides hours of endless fun, adventure and at times a lot of hard work.

In 2017, I joined Dr. Hodges’ team at Northeast Texas Periodontal Specialists and am delegated with providing Perioscopy in the Rockwall, Paris and Fort Worth locations. Through Dr. Hodges’ Dental Study Club, I have had the pleasure to provide continuing education courses on Perioscopy to hundreds of other dental professionals introducing them to periodontal endoscopy and its benefits for my patients. Outside of dentistry, I love to spend time with my family. My wife, Michelle, is currently working in Wylie ISD. Our two children, Seth (14), Blake (6) keep us very busy with various activities. I am a Basic Life Support, Adult/Child/Infant CPR, Basic First Aid and Epinephrine Administration Certified Instructor through the American Safety and Health Institute and provide certifications to healthcare professionals and laypersons throughout Texas.
