Rheumatologist, Integris Physicians
Figure skater. Archaeologist. Rheumatologist. Three titles, but only one person in our 40 Under 40 Class of 2012 has boasted all three of them at one time. Dedeke currently practices at Integris Family Care Central, but she has also conducted clinical research in rheumatology under Dr. Judith James at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation. A figure skater from the age of 6, Dedeke’s first job was a figure skating coach; she has also participated in archaeological digs in Italy in Israel. When she wants to unwind, Dedeke works out, travels and attends as many Thunder games as possible.
