TBCE Reports: The Friendly Face at our Front Desk
Wednesday, May 07, 2014 10:54 PM

If you have called the TBCE main line recently, you may have been surprised to have a friendly “live” voice answer your call. In January 2012, we hired Sarah Matthews as our Licensing Assistant and agency Receptionist. Since that time, Sarah has helped hundreds of chiropractors and facility owners with licensing or registration issues.

Sarah graduated from Pflugerville High School in 2000 and grew up in the Austin area. Her entire family has a passion for the University of Texas Longhorns.

She lives in Hutto with her husband, Scott, 5-year-old daughter Claire, 3-year-old son Bredt, and a big Boxer pup named Braxton. She enjoys spending time with her family, swimming, and watching movies.

Our agency has gotten countless compliments on Sarah’s great customer service. Her passion for helping licensees and members of the public is very much appreciated by the Board!

Board Rule 73.1 requires licensees to maintain a current physical home and business address with the Board.

The same rule also requires licensees to notify the Board in writing of any change in address within 30 days of that change. Additionally, Board Rule 74.5 requires a facility to notify the Board in writing of any change in street or mailing address or ownership within 30 days of that change.

Please note that merely submitting a change through Texas Online when completing a license or registration renewal will NOT change your address with the Board.
