Tricia

Office Manager

I am the do-all of our office. Whether it is patient financing or fixing something around the office, in the past 20 years, I have helped wherever it has been needed. I do my best to keep everyone on their toes with a touch of humor. I truly value the relationships I have built with patients over the years and being able to joke around with them. Outside of the office, I seem to always find myself on the bleachers somewhere with my husband rooting one or both of our daughters on as they play volleyball, basketball, and run track. I enjoy vacationing with whatever time I have left over.
