Meet the Staff

Cathy

cathyCathy is the person you will likely encounter when you call The Tri Doc. She is the person responsible for scheduling, insurance, payments, administration and just about everything else. She is our front desk superstar.

Cathy decided to get into the healthcare field after making a huge change in her own life. Cathy had lived for an extended period of time in an unhealthy state and one day woke up and said, NO MORE! She started by altering her diet and walking. She continued this process and made huge changes, in fact her dedication and discipline lead to a 90 lb weight loss. Wow! Most people that meet her today would never guess that she struggled with weight issues, but she did and she overcame. We got lucky enough to talk her into working at The Tri Doc and the rest is history.

Cathy is married to her high school sweet heart Joe and they have two children Cody and Hailey. When Cathy met Dr. Tuggle for the very first time she announced that she wanted to do an Ironman. True to her word, she completed Ironman Texas in May 2015. She has completed many other races, but for some weird reason, she loves running marathons.


Dana

Dana is originally from Houston but recently decided to move to Austin this past year. She has always known that she had a purpose to change lives but was unsure of what she was supposed to do. In 2014 she had lost a little bit of weight and gained some confidence in herself. She decided that she wanted to help to encourage people to become better physically and mentally, and pursued personal training. She became certified in personal training from NASM in December 2014.

Dana really enjoys reading and wanted to further her education. She recently earned a certification Corrective Exercise Certification from NASM. She has developed a passion in learning how the body works and is very excited to be a part of the team at The Tri Doc.

Dana is married to her husband Eugene and they have two dogs named Mila and Meeko. When she is not working, she is usually reading, studying at a coffee shop, or exploring Austin.

Emily's background is project management in the high tech industry, but she has always had a strong interest in the healthcare field and is excited to bring her organization and administration skills to The Tri Doc team.

Emily grew up playing competitive sports like basketball, volleyball, soccer, and tennis. These days, she's into functional fitness, HIIT workouts, strength training, and hiking/biking the many beautiful parks around Austin. She also enjoys healthy eating, cooking, and reading (favorites are mystery and suspense novels).

Emily is originally from Oklahoma, but is working on her honorary Texan status by marrying a born and bred Texan (also her college sweetheart), living in the Dallas area for many years, and moving to Austin in 2012. They have one spoiled, senior citizen cat that refuses to let them get a dog.
