Well, 12 Oaks Dental Austin family and friends, the time has finally come for me to run off to hygiene school!! I can’t even believe after 5 and a half years at this amazing office it is time for me to move on. I have been accepted (FINALLY) to the Temple College Dental Hygiene Program! But don’t worry, you will still get to see my shining face on my school breaks and a couple of days over the summer! It’s crazy to think about, 10 years ago I decided this was the path I wanted to take with my life and after a few hiccups (very small baby hiccups 😉 ) I am finally following my dream!
This was no easy feat though, let me assure you of that. I’m sure some of you remember me taking classes almost 2 years ago to update everything as science classes expire after 3-5 years depending on the college! I applied to the dental hygiene program last year only to be denied entrance by Temple College and turned away from ACC for a chicken pox shot! This year was almost a scare as well!!! Monday March 9th, I received a letter actually denying me entrance to the Temple College program AGAIN! Only to receive a call Thursday the 12th stating they had a position for me!
I am excited for my new adventure and nervous about all the change. It’s hard to leave your “home” after over 5 years, and begin anew. I have grown so much here and I thank each one of my family members!
Dr. Worob – Thank you for always believing in me, and giving me every opportunity to grow and learn. And for always being my shoulder to cry on, I couldn’t ask for a better “dad”.
Dr. Cronin-Barron – You are an amazing friend and I value the lessons we teach each other. I love that our daughters are growing up together (even if it’s in different cities) and I’m proud of the strong Dr. you have become!
Terri – Oh mom!! I love your blunt sense of humor and your motherly advice. You’ve made a good fill –in 😉
Kelley- I will miss your fake yelling ha-ha! Thank you for always being there when I need someone to talk to, and of course all the funs times we’ve had!
Deb – aww Deb! I LOVE YOU! You are such a strong person, and I value your advice! I’ll still need my weekly gossip!
Renee’- It’s been a pleasure to watch you “blossom” ha-ha! I will miss your sense of humor!
Laura – I appreciate all of your long winded wisdom! You are such an amazingly smart woman and I strive to be like you (with shorter sentences).
Hope – It’s been so wonderful to grow with you! I am so incredibly proud of everything you have accomplished and now I am following in your footsteps. You are going to be a wonderful mommy!
Paddy – I look forward to seeing you Fridays to catch you up on my drama, ha-ha! Thank you for adopting me!
Brandi, Tina and Rachel – it’s been such a short time and I wish I could have had more time with you, but know that this is an amazing family to be a part of!
Let’s not say good-bye, but see ya later! I hope to make you all proud!
