Evelyn is a local and a proud Hebbronvillian. She is the oldest of five siblings, happily married and still in love with her wonderful husband, Jaren. They are proud parents of their own “mini me’s”; Julius and Felicity, ages 14 and 11 respectively.

Evelyn has been with Hebbronville Dental Group for over 7 years. Prior to moving back to Hebbronville, she worked in Las Colinas, Tx for CitiGroup as a Performance & Training Specialist for over 10 years.

When not running around being a soccer mom, she enjoys volunteering at her local church. Some of her favorite hobbies include baking, exercising, and dancing! Most importantly, she enjoys spending quality time with my family and friends.

The following quote resonates with Evelyn, and she is a great example of leadership. “You don’t push string; you pull it. You don’t push people; you lead them.” –Edwin Louis Cole
