Hello! I am one of the newer faces in the office but I have been a Hygienist for over 17 years!
I grew up in Indianapolis and have lived here my whole life other than the 4 years I spent at IU in Bloomington. There I graduated with Honors, receiving a Bachelor of General Science with a Minor in Spanish in 2001. I decided to continue in Allied Health Science and got my Associates of Dental Hygiene at the Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2003. While in school, I was selected by my professors to serve on the Admissions Board and was elected a member of Sigma Phi Alpha National Dental Hygiene Honor Society. I returned to the classroom in 2012 to receive my Local Anesthesia Licensure. I am a proud member of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association.
I was thrilled to be offered a full-time position here 2 years ago. I have enjoyed getting to know the patients and am blessed to say I have always loved my job! I try my best to make your visit pleasant (it’s my goal to make you laugh at least once!) and keep you informed along the way!
My husband, Kevin and I have been married for 16 years. We live in Broadripple with our 3 kiddos (two daughters and a son) ages 12, 10, and 7. They keep us on our toes with various sports and clubs. I also coach the Cheerleading Squad at my kids’ school. Our German Shepherd, Iggy, and our flock of 9 backyard chickens, complete our family!
When I have free time, I love riding my bike on the Monon trail, walking, and I adore reading. I also enjoy a good Lip Sync Battle! I look forward to meeting you if I haven’t already. Don’t forget to floss!
