Vicky

Office Manager

Hello, my name is Vicky and I joined Grin Pediatric Dentistry in 2017. I attended the University of North Texas where I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in business and personnel administration. I have 20 years of management experience in healthcare and information technology. I am also a member of the American Association of Dental Office Management. I enjoy helping our staff grow and interacting with our patients. Plus, I’m more than happy to keep the little ones busy to give mom or dad a break!

My husband Steve and I enjoy spending time outdoors, events with family, and most of all, time with our granddaughter. I also enjoy flower gardening and researching family genealogy.
