I love my hometown of Vashon, WA. It is where my friends and family live and means I only have a short ten-minute commute to work.
My love for dentistry started early with a much desired play-dough dental toy. It went from that to wanting to try a version of the real thing.
So, I began attending college and completed courses with the intention of entering the hygiene program. However, life had it’s own plan for me because I found an opening here at Dental Care for Vashon. It is the perfect fit and feels like I found my new home.
Since then, I found my real passion is in administration and helping people feel prepared for their visit. I share my knowledge so our patients can understand each procedure, their financing options, and the treatment timeline.
Outside of the Office:
I am an avid movie buff with my favorite genre is comedy. When I’m not watching movies, I like to cook and try things I find on Pinterest.
Bucket List Item:
One thing I would love to do is go to New Zealand to see the beautiful sites.
I grew up in Pennsylvania but now live on Vashon Island. I am married with two young daughters. I have been in the dental field since 1996.
I found dentistry while at college. I was searching for a career path and happened to be sat in the dental chair. As usual, I had a great experience with the hygienist and began asking her about her profession. It was then that I decided to apply to a dental program, and now it is my real passion.
I love the day-to-day interactions with my patients, especially when they show or express their gratitude for having a stress-free visit. I make it my goal to help everyone overcome their dental fears and achieve a beautiful smile.
I grew up in a small town in Southern California before moving to Washington.
I have been a dental assistant for more than 20 years! It is a job that really suits my gentle and compassionate side.
I love bringing happiness to peoples’ lives. It is such a great feeling when a patient shows appreciation for what we have done for them. I enjoy making people more confident in themselves and helping families achieve better oral health.
Outside the Office:
I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy hiking, sports, keeping fit, and spending time with my pets.
