I made the decision to leave the corporate structure to pursue a career in Medical Office Management in 2002. As a single mom I wanted more time with my family. I wanted a career doing something I believed in where I could make a difference and help people.
I began working for Dr. Polski in 2003. I felt very fortunate that I was led to work in an environment and for an employer and staff that genuinely cares about the physical, mental, and spiritual health of every patient without reservation or discrimination.
I was born and raised in Fort Worth Texas although I’ve travelled extensively all around the United States I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
My hobbies and interest primarily revolve around my family. I’m very dedicated to and love them very much. For fun I like a variety of things but, most of all I enjoy spending time with my children, their spouses and all of my grandchildren.
I enjoy spending time with family, cooking, baking, camping, hiking and helping out at the church.
I was born in Colorado, grew up in Kansas, then went to college in Lincoln Nebraska for two years for Office Management/Accounting. I moved to Texas and got a bachelor’s degree and teacher’s certification in Early Childhood through grade 8, then taught in a small one teacher school for two years then got married and moved to Monument Valley Indian Reservation. We had a son and daughter while living on the reservation and moved back to Texas when the mission hospital was closed, when the government refused to pay its bills for patients under contract..
