I’m delighted to say, I’ve been Dr. Ward’s office manager since 2003. It has been a true blessing to my life. I enjoy serving others. I am the 3rd of 6 children and am grateful for a large family. I was married in 1986 to a man I treasure. We have one daughter Rachel, and 3 grandchildren Owen, Abigail, and Elliott.
Outside of dentistry, I love to sing, read, walk, and study the Bible, and scripture memory. We attend the Bible Church of Tulsa. I sing at church, funerals, weddings, and special events. Frank and I love spending time with our daughter and her family, and our extended family. We always have something going on; birthday parties, games, house projects. We LOVE to watch the Oklahoma City Thunder and any time it is on we are glued to the set. Thunder Up!!!
I am originally from Wichita, Kansas and obtained my Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management from Baker University. When not working, you can probably find me pretending to know what I'm doing at a local Crossfit gym or attending one of my children's extra-curricular activities ranging from basketball games to performances on stage.
I'm excited to serve our team and patients with my skills, experience and gifts in changing smiles and transforming lives!
I graduated from OU College of Dentistry in 2008 and have worked for Dr. Ward as a Registered Dental Hygienist since 2009. My husband, Wes, and I have two children. Grant plays baseball, football, and basketball, and my daughter Hannah loves gymnastics. When we aren’t busy taking the kids to their activities, we love to be outside.
It brings me a lot of happiness to be part of Dr. Ward’s team where we all strive for excellence in all we do and share the same joy when we see how our work creates life changing experiences for our patients.
My personal mission is to serve the people of my community in a way that is beneficial to their health and wellbeing. I genuinely care about each and every person and want them to live their life to the fullest mentally and physically. I am a yoga teacher at Tulsa YMCA where I create a welcoming environment and allow each person the freedom to listen to their body, start where they are, and grow stronger body and mind. Another way I serve my community is being a volunteer firefighter at Limestone Fire Protection.
My husband, Tyler, and I have two children and we enjoy doing all things outdoors together.
I attended Platt College to become dental assistant and graduated in 2011. I’ve worked in oral surgery throughout my dental assisting career.
