Registered Dental Hygienist
Where she’s from: Willcox Arizona
Dental Experience (what year): I started assisting with my dad when I was 12 and continued through college. Then went to hygiene school and started practicing hygiene in 1999.
Favorite part of working in dentistry: I love the conversations I get to have with people and the relationships that I get to build as I get an update on my patient’s lives every 6 months.
What she does for fun: My life right now is all about my kids, so I’m really enjoying celebrating with them. I especially love creating and celebrating family traditions. When I get to be selfish and do something without the kids, I really love being outdoors and really enjoy hiking and being anywhere that is really quiet.
What is the most challenging/rewarding part of being a parent? Trying to get through to someone that is so much like me. It’s so hard sometimes not to laugh when they do something mischievous, because I know where they’re coming from.
Favorite Quote: “Wrinkles only come where smiles have been”…not sure where it originally came from…embarrassingly enough I heard it from a Jimmy Buffet song.
