I'm originally from Kosse, TX. I was a stay at home mom for most of my kids younger years. I met the love of my life and ventured up here to the Longview area 4 years ago. We have 6 children between the both of us. In 2018 I received my Pharmacy Technician license and have worked in the pharmaceutical field for past 2 years. I love and enjoy helping others and always have.

I also enjoy spending time with my family, having cook outs, and enjoying each others company. Both my boys are involved in sports, absolutely love to watch them play when I can.

I was born and raised in Longview, Texas.  I have 3 sons, 7 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren. My parents brought me up with morals, values, and gave me a heart to care for mankind.  I graduated from Longview High School and in my lifetime I've had many opportunities.   Upon graduation I worked as a Dental Assistant.  I graduated from Bish Mathis Institute as a Medical Assistant.  I worked as a Medical Assistant for a Pain Management/Anesthesiologist and a Phlebotomist/Screener at a Plasma Center.


I decided to go to LVN school but, as life happens, I wasn't able to complete my second semester.  I was an office manager for an attorney for over 20 years. I've had the opportunity to do bookkeeping, data entry and also worked as a medical receptionist/scheduler for 12 providers. I am thrilled and I feel richly blessed to have the opportunity to become part of Dr. Kranz support staff.
