My husband, Lance and I moved to Fredericksburg a year after graduating from Baylor College of Dentistry in 2004. We wanted to move to a small town in order experience a similar sense of community that Lance enjoyed as a child in Caldwell, TX. After visiting several different small towns across Texas, nothing seemed like a good fit until we visited Fredericksburg. Shortly after our first visit, we purchased a dental office in Fredericksburg and started our family the following year. Our four children, Landon (10), Rylan (9), Madalyn (7), and Noah (5) were born in Fredericksburg and baptized at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. All four children have attended St. Mary’s School since pre-kindergarten and we are active parishioners of St. Mary’s. Over the years I have volunteered in many school functions and I also enjoy spending time in the pre-k through second grade classrooms talking to students about proper dental health. I am honored to serve on the school council and hope to help implement programs that not only nurture our students' academic, social, and spiritual growth but also help ensure the continued success of our school.
