I started working in the Orthodontic field 25 years ago. I worked with an orthodontist in Kentucky for a year before joining Dr. Principe in Mount Dora. I now work with Dr. Escott as a treatment coordinator. I have been an avid horsewoman since the age of eight. I have been riding both English and Western, and competing in both, as well as barrel, poles, and cutting. In 2003, I won tenth place in the National Championship in the 25 amateur riding my horse Rippin Little Lena. I presently enjoy trail riding on my walking horses. I have a husband, Jerry, a daughter Gwen, and son-in-law Dave. I have three beautiful grandchildren which are the loves of my life: my dancer Makayla (age 9), my softball player Grace (age 7), and my all boy Colton (age 4). I am blessed that my grandchildren have the love of horses like I do and have become my riding partners.
