My background includes over 34 years in the dental field. I started at the age of 15 as a Dental Assistant and worked my way up to manager for 7 Dental Offices with Dr. Charles I. Williams. I have experience in every aspect of the Dental Office, therefore, I formed Ellis County Dental and Medical Unltd. Besides the staffing, I also did management consulting for various offices around the DFW Metroplex. I found in 2002 I really wanted to expand my business to pursue more Dental and Medical and go further out into the DFW Metroplex. I moved my office to Ferris to be able to hire people to help me reach my goal. This has proven to be a very smart move on my part. Unfortunately, in 2010 I closed Dent-Med Staffing because we could not recover from the economy crunch.
In January 2005 I started working on a dream to own a Dental Assisting school. This dream came true in June 2005 when Training Academy for Dental Assistants opened its doors for the first class. This has proved to be a wise move because in 2007 we added a Medical Assistant program and later on we added Massage therapy.
I am the sole member of the corporation and look forward to adding YOU to the team. I strive for change and improvement. My motto is work hard, play hard. You will see this in everything I do, including my staff.

P.S. I have a husband, Don, who supports me in all my adventures. I have a beautiful daughter, Christal, who is now a Dental Hygienist. I have a son, Zac, who is a Lancaster Police Officer. Christal has blessed our family and school with Easton, my first grandchild. Christal is married to Officer Jason Meeks who added a granddaughter, Lexye Meeks and grandson Kade Meeks. Zac is married to Lupee Beauchamp and they have blessed us with two beautiful grandchildren, Bristol and Jax.

Twenty-five years ago the Owner and Director of Training Academy 4 U, Michele, hired me for my very first Dental job. I have worked in several specialty offices: pediatrics, oral surgery, prosthodontics and more. I have been teaching Dental Assisting for 7 years now and it is my passion.

Massage Therapy had been a life-long interest put on hold while fulfilling other life goals.
Therefore, shortly after retiring from a long career as a business professional and Non-Profit Management Consultant, I decided to invest both time and energy into blossoming this interest as part of a “re-invention of self” plan. Little did I know at the time, how exciting and rewarding this experience would be!
I enrolled in Massage Therapy Class at Training Academy 4U then received my Massage Therapist License. Encouraged by friends and clients I met during my internship at the school, I immediately began a small home-based practice.
In November 2017, with appreciation to a growing client base that motivated me to continue growing, I opened BEA WELL MASSAGE in downtown Waxahachie.
My goal as a Massage Therapist is to help everyone who comes in for a massage to relax, rejuvenate and experience a sense of renewed well-being.
In July, 2018, I returned to Training Academy 4U, as a Massage Instructor. Excellence drives everything I do. As such, it is my goal to provide an excellent and engaging learning experience for each and every student in our Massage program, that provides the foundation for their future success.

My career as a medical instructor began in 2004. I enjoy sharing the things I have learned in my 24 years of healthcare experience to better educate students while providing a unique method of learning! Compassion to help others has been the driving force which promoted by decision to go into the healthcare field. Now, I have the availability to share that passion with my students.

I am currently in the process of becoming a published author and finishing my 2nd book.
