She earned a Bachelor’s Degree with honors in secondary science education from Oklahoma Baptist University and then went on to the School of Dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA), where she and Dr. Jamie met. They were both active in extracurricular organizations, served as class officers, and received awards for clinical excellence. They were married in July of 2000. Following Dr. Jen’s dental school graduation in 2001, they moved to Kerrville and purchased Dr. Emil C. Willmann’s practice. In 2005, they expanded by purchasing the practice of their neighbor, Dr. Jay Burditt. Dr. Jen returned to school part-time from 2007 to 2009 to complete an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program at UTHSCSA.
Since 2001, Drs. Jamie and Jen have built upon their vision of developing a quality-driven and relationship-focused group practice in the Texas Hill Country.
