I always had a background in science. My family, growing up we talked about it at the dinner table. My mom is a pharmacist, my dad's a dentist, which led my brother to become a surgeon, and so growing up, I knew I wanted to do something in that field. In the summertime in college, I would spend time in my dad's and kind of get an experience working with him and experiencing the workflow of how he does his practice, and I liked the one-on-one experiences that he had. The kind of rewards that you have seeing different types of patients and working with different types of patients. Seeing immediate results and immediate satisfaction from a lot of patients. I felt that type of work environment and experience would be something that I could pursue.
I grew up here. Proud ... Have a lot of close family and friends here. In college, I went to Texas A&M University in College Station. Graduated from there, came back home, and had a little off time before starting dental school in San Antonio in 2010. I've been here for three years now and proud to be serving my hometown.
