As chief nursing officer at Cuero for 29 years, I know it is my priority and my staff’s priority to provide high-quality, safe care and a warm, welcoming experience. We aim to do the right thing for you every time. Our passion for patient care comes easily. It’s why we’re here. And it’s also because, in a town the size of ours, it’s our honor to care for our neighbors and friends. I was born here and attended our local schools. I am a true Cuero Gobbler! Sometimes on my drive to work, I see deer and an occasional rabbit alongside the road, and I thank God for this beautiful place. I cherish Cuero, its good quality of life and all of its amazing people. To our neighbors and friends: We are honored to provide your care. I mean that with my whole heart. And I look forward to caring for you and your family if you need us.
