Expanded Dental Assistant

Hello! I’m your friendly dental assistant! I graduated from Walker Career Center in 1989 and went to South Bend Dental Arts to practice expanded duties. I really enjoy helping my patients create beautiful smiles. This career has allowed me to keep in touch with my artistic side, because smile design is definitely an art. I have been helping put smiles on patients’ faces for over 20 years here! Together, we have made a lot of people very happy and confident with their new dental makeovers. One day, I’d love to have given every single patient in our practice the beautiful smile they deserve! Our office has become a second home to me and my co-workers and patients are like a second family, whom I love seeing every day.

My job keeps me very busy, but my home life keeps me hopping! My family consists of my 4 children. Aubrielle, Carlienna, Jeston, Shanye, and step children Haley and Lauren.  I am recently married the love of my life, Mike, who has 3 children Alex, Cheyenne and Brady.  Put these all together and I’ve got one happy, hectic home! Dare I even mention our dogs, Sissy, Amethyst and Russel?!  Our family enjoys the outdoors and camping.
