Meet the Staff

Cathy | Office Manager

Cathy 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 office 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 and she turned herself into an endurance athlete. 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 sweetheart Joe and they have two children, Cody and Hailey. When Cathy met Dr. Tuggle for the very first time she announced her plans 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.

Kelly | Front Office Assistant


 Kelly joined our team in October 2020. You will most likely meet her at our front desk. Her husband's military career took their family to 3 other countries and 5 other states before retiring and choosing to live in Texas. Throughout their travels she home educated their 3 children while managing their home and moves around the world. Now that they have chosen Texas as their home, she has decided to embark on a new adventure by using her talents here in our clinic.

Aubrey, Front Office Assistant

Aubrey | Front Office Assistant

Aubrey came to Advanced Physical Medicine at Bell District in 2015 for an injury evaluation right before her first Hood to Coast 200-mile relay. She had been running through pretty severe foot pain and was avoiding seeing a doctor, expecting to be told to stop running. Instead, Dr. Tuggle was confident that with a few treatments leading up to the race and some serious foam rolling homework she could make it through, and she did.

Aubrey continued coming into the clinic for maintenance, as well as treatment for a shoulder injury. She liked hanging out at the clinic so much that when a part-time position became available it was a great fit. She works in the front office a few hours a week and sometimes covers for longer if we let Cathy out for vacation.

She has three boys at home, including her husband, Patrick. They moved from Portland, Oregon to Austin in 2011 and love the warm, sunny weather here. Their favorite family activity might be tubing the San Marcos River. Aubrey has finished a handful of half marathons, many 5k and 10ks, and lately captains a 24-hour, overnight Ragnar trail relay team in the Texas hill country. She also does a lot of yoga and makes artisan bar soap on the side.
