Pattie was born to be a dental hygienist. When she was a teenager, she was fortunate enough to babysit a dentist’s daughters. He invited her to come work in his office. While there, she was cross-trained at the front desk and as an assistant. Then, when it was time to attend college, it was a natural transition to dental hygiene. Pattie graduated Magna Cum Laude from Tyler Junior College in 1980 and has not slowed down since. Trade Winds Dental was honored to have such an experienced dental hygienist and caring individual such as Pattie join the team December 2013.
Pattie’s faith and family are centering, driving forces in her life. Although Pattie’s roots are in Tyler, Texas, she has lived in the Dallas area, as well as outside of Frankfurt, West Germany. She and her family have been in the Austin area since 1995. Pattie has been happily married to her high school sweetheart since 1979. She’s had the honor and privilege of raising two, grown children, a son and a daughter. Now she has the crowning addition of four precious granddaughters.
