My favorite aspect of my job: I truly enjoy meeting people “where they are” in their dental care journey.  I celebrate all victories-even the smallest-as a patient improves their oral health.  

Background:  As a 12-year-old in braces, I was excited for every visit at the orthodontist.  This lead me to attend MATC for dental assisting, and then dental hygiene.  I have worked in general dentistry for thirty-eight years.  

My Hobbies: Whenever possible, I enjoy working on “projects”.  I’ve started knitting, sewing, jewelry design and fabrication, and stained glass.  I no longer have dogs of my own, but I care for dogs at my home when their families are on vacation.   At my house, the pups are on vacation, too!

My Family:  I am single, and do not have children.  My niece is the recipient of my uncontrollable “spoiling!” My siblings and many cousins live nearby, which allows frequent get-togethers!
