Office Assistant to Dr. Ayala
Hello, my name is Cindy. My family and I moved to San Antonio from Arizona in 2008. I received my Batchelor of Science in Family Studies and Child Development from Arizona State University. Upon graduation I was an assistant director for small preschool followed by a role as a Family Support Specialist at Southwest Human Development. In 2008 I decided to be a full-time mommy to my daughter Samantha; followed by my son, Connor. However, I continued my community involvement with volunteer positions in pre-k and at the elementary level. I have held the positions of secretary, VP of Programs, and VP of Fundraising within our local public schools, PTA.
I decided I was ready for a new career path; So, I joined the Ayala Team. I still get to help people but in a different setting. Plastic surgery is a big life decision and I love that I get to be part of it and help those feel the best versions of themselves. You will find me on my computer replying to emails from you, booking appointments, patient liaison, marketing and social media. I look forward to meeting you.
