I’m happy to welcome you to the DBT Center. Keeping administrative needs flowing smoothly is an important part of providing effective services and my goal is to help make that happen for everyone. I have experience in billing for over twenty years and medical office management for over seven years. I have four children; three youngest are in college and one grandson.I love spending time with my grandson and taking time to bring my Siberian and Alaskan Huskies to the dog park.

The team that goes above and beyond to bring you peace.
