Born in Shiner Texas, Kristene (or Kris) has remained in central Texas to be close to family.
Dental assisting throughout high school sparked an interest that lead her to graduating from the UT Health Science Center in San Antonio dental hygiene program; she was very fortunate to find her professional home in Austin.
Since 1997, she has been working with Dr. Evans, taking care of families, and their children, many she now considers friends. She enjoys continuing and sharing her education in an ever-changing dental health care environment.
When not at work, family life with two teens keeps her busy, along with a love for cooking, fermenting, gardening and being outdoors.
