Separately, Ashandra and Richard Cumby are movements in the community, but they are extreme force when they link up. These native Houstonians, have been married for 4 years and are still in their honeymoon phase. As part of Bravo’s Married to Medicine Houston, The Cumbys demonstrated the artful and hilarious balance of challenging careers, a blended household and maintaining their strong faith. Dr. Ashandra Batiste, as she is known to her patients, owns a private dental practice and Richard, a medical device sales representative are truly married to medicine. The two are parents to 3-year-old Logan, and Ashandra’s adorable daughter Avery, 11, from her previous marriage. Ashandra is also a member of the Houston Area Urban League for Young Professionals, the Richard E. Wainerdi Wellness Institute and the American Dental Association, along with being a mentor for young women for the RARE Pearls Organization. Richard stays busy as well volunteering with Suits for Sons, a young men’s mentoring organization, the National Sales Network, and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated. When Ashandra’s not serving on the PTO at her daughter’s school or Ricky’s not mentoring young men, this vivacious couple enjoys working out together, cooking together and laughing the entire time. Whether it’s traveling first class, or upgrading their home decor, nothing The Cumby’s do is average; they know how to enjoy life’s luxuries and have fun while doing it.
