I started my medical career in the United States Navy as a Hospital Corpsman. After my enlistment ended, I developed a passion for dentistry and enrolled in school to become a Dental Assistant. I graduated from the Academy for Dental Assistants, Inc. in 1998 with certification in Expanded Functions and Radiology. I have been in the dental field since then and enjoy every moment.
I have kept up to date with advances in the dental field through continuing education. Recently I completed the educational requirements to competently assist in Pediatric Conscious Sedation cases. Besides chair-side dental assisting, my experience includes school-based sealant program coordinator, dental assistant interns preceptor, and dental office supervisor.
My current position as Office Manager has been very rewarding. It is such a blessing to bring a smile to a child’s face. I feel blessed to work with dentists and staff who not only have a passion for dentistry, but love kids and come to work ready to help families keep their child healthy.
I am originally from Ohio, and have lived in Florida since 1997. I met my loving husband in the Navy and we have been married since 1992. Our two amazing sons, Joseph and Samuel, make us proud every waking moment. We enjoy spending time with family, traveling, and going to sports activities. We are so blessed.
