Patient Care Coordinator
I started my career in dentistry in 2019. I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to work with such an amazing group of people I now call my friends! My favorite part of working in dentistry is giving our patients comfort, knowledge, and ease as soon as they walk into our office.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing pool, cooking, painting, and spending time with family and my fur babies, Lizzie and Ozzie.
