Our Dental Assistant
Staff is listed in alphabetical order
I grew up in the St. Charles area. I recently graduated from the Dental Assisting program at Elgin Community College. I enjoy being a dental assistant because I love working with people and making them happy with their experience at every visit. I’m dedicated to my patients and my team to provide the best service possible. In my free time I like to travel, hike, and spend time with my family. One of my favorite summer activities is kayaking.
I started my dental career in 1994, after graduating from the Naval school of Dental assisting and technology, in San Diego, Ca. I worked at the Great Lakes Naval base as a dental assistant, and did clinical rotations through many different departments, which included General dentistry and Oral surgery. I then moved to Boston in 1997, where I worked as a dental assistant. I was able to utilize my expanded duties, and continue to learn new technology. I also have lived in other cities, such as Syracuse NY, and New Orleans, LA. In 2006, I moved back to my hometown in the Western Suburbs. My 23 years of experience has been wonderful, especially building patient rapports. My main focus is that every patient has a comfortable, quality experience in the practice I work in. I am also a certified dental anesthesia assistant. I love the satisfaction of making a patient comfortable, especially when they are nervous about coming to the dentist. I am married, and have a daughter, Alanna. I love to cook( you will find the food network on my tv always), I also love the outdoors, walking, hiking, music, art, and spending time with friends and family.
