I joined the practice in 1999. Starting as a sterilization tech, moving to dental assistant and business team and then progressing to office manager has allowed me to fully appreciate all aspects of patient care and team development. I have three children and three granddaughters. My son, Sean served in the Navy and is now in local law enforcement, my daughter, Alexis is a Registered Nurse and youngest son Shayne is a welder & commercial pool technician. I am proud to have earned a Fellowship in the American Academy of Dental Office Management, a national association of practice managers.
