I have been in the dental field for 30 years, and I am happy to say that out of 30 years I have been with Dr. Beckel for 20 years. I don't think you could find anyone more caring and who truely loves what they do.  Then there is my wonderful staff which I love and appreciate each one of them. 

I was born in San Antonio, but I grew up in Boerne.  I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 34 years.  We have one fun loving son, a beautiful daughter in law, and they have blessed us with four wonderful grandkids.  I love fishing, hunting and spending time with my family and friends.

Finally, I'd like to say I  can't wait to see you again or meet you for the first time.  I do gaurantee I'll greet you with a smile and you'll want to stay for a while.

I have been with Dr. Beckel since 1985.  I started as his assistant, then finished the Dental Hygiene program at UTHSC in 1997.   I enjoy cleaning teeth and educating patients on good dental hygiene habits.   I enjoy my work and find it very fulfilling.  I am happily married and have two extraordinary children.  When I'm not cleaning teeth I enjoy baking, scrap booking and spending time with my family.

I look forward to helping you maintain a healthy smile!
