Alaina, Office Manager
Alaina is our one-of-a-kind Office Manager. She was born and raised right here in Plano, TX and she plans to stay in DFW for years to come. She received her Office Systems Technology degree from Collin College and has more than five years of administration and management experience. Most recently before joining A Bright Future Pediatrics, she spent over two years working in ABA facilities (Applied Behavior Analysis). She grew a strong passion for Autism and the special needs community and adores working around children.
In her spare time, Alaina loves being active with her daughter, going to concerts, making art, and playing video games (Zelda is her favorite!). She is a proud tree hugger, reptile lover, and Mexican food connoisseur!
Christy, Patient Care Manager
Christy is often the very first person that new patients speak to. She handles new patient enrollment, medical records, referrals, and so much more. For our behavioral health patients (such as ADHD), she is there from the first call to our office to guide parents through the process and expectations for everyone involved in the patient’s plan of care. She is bubbly, professional, and a joy to have here! She has over 12 years of experience as a Medical Assistant and Medical Front Office; this experience brings so much enthusiasm and knowledge to us! She enjoys camping, hiking, and cooking with her husband and two teenage children. She also loves music, Broadway plays, and anything Disney or Harry Potter!
Our nursing staff is caring, knowledgeable, and (most of all) fun. They are committed to treating our patients and family members with compassion, dignity, and respect. All staff members will maintain absolute confidentiality regarding any information they may receive in the course of your service with us.
Katie, Certified Medical Assistant
Our team brought in the 2019 year with a new Certified Medical Assistant, Katie! She is a positive, energetic, shining star that all of our kids love! Katie has over seven years’ experience in pediatrics, dermatology, and insurance benefits, making for a well-rounded skill set. She is a fun loving individual who spends her free time fishing, reading, baking, and traveling. She loves her dog Roper and enjoys 90’s music, game, and movie nostalgia. In the future, Katie is looking forward to continuing her education and plans to eventually travel to Norway.
