She will share the frightening steps to what saved her husband's life and how it is most important as a spouse, to claim the time it takes to take care of yourself. "We deserve it." Listening to her intuition likely saved her husband's life.

Anna Ebeling has been married to her best friend, Joe Ebeling, for 30 years. During which time they were blessed with 6 children and 2 grandchildren!  Together, from the ground up, they built two thriving practices, one in TEXAS and the other in MICHIGAN.

Anne Duffy

JoAn and Kathy speak with DeW Life magazine Editor and Publisher, Anne Duffy. They all agree, Dentistry is a lifestyle and that's why it takes more time and energy from both people in any marriage!

Many times it takes a Dew and a DeWd. Whether it's a female dental professional supported by a male spouse or as in Kathy and JoAn's case a female spouse who supports a practicing dentist in the practice and/or community.  Anne's feelings (and actions) of collaboration and abundance drive her passion to give back.
