Healthy Smiles from Our Family to Yours
I have always wanted to be in the healthcare profession, but put that desire aside so that I was able to start a family first. I graduated from the dental assisting class in 1991 at Massanutten Technical Center and have been a part of dentistry ever since. Over the years, I have been involved with not only working in dentistry, but also teaching. For seven years, I taught dental assisting classes and in 2013, I became a Certified Dental Assistant. I have enjoyed being a utility player in the dental office for the past 23 years, from my current position, to filling in as a dental assistant, or any other area that is needed throughout the day. I love every aspect of dentistry, especially watching our patient’s reactions when they see their beautiful smile transformations for the first time! I enjoy being able to help patients achieve the smile that they deserve from beginning to end.
When I am not at the office, I love spending time with my family and friends, especially my grandchildren! I have five grandsons and one beautiful granddaughter, and truly enjoy every minute with them. I also enjoy reading and cuddling with my sweet and lovable Maltipoo, Mandy. I love being with good friends having lunch dates, and also enjoy being a home-body with my husband. I am blessed with good company!
I graduated from Broadway High School in 2006, and obtained a Health Sciences degree at James Madison University in 2010. I joined the dental profession after college and have over ten years of experience working in the health, dental, and insurance field. I truly enjoy helping people put the puzzle pieces together to better understand their dental benefit plan, what is available to them, and finding a way for them to achieve the result that they want in their oral health. I love presenting treatment that is easy to understand and realistic to complete. I am devoted to helping patients, as I know that in this busy world, it is difficult to take the time to deal with insurances and the headache that can come along with them.
Outside of the office, I love spending time outdoors. I love camping, hiking, off-roading in our Jeeps, and enjoying the simple (and sometimes complex!) life of hobby farming alongside my husband, Canaan, our son, and our two Boxer-children. We currently have a full size pot-bellied pig, angus cattle, and free-range chickens, but the crew changes every season! On the opposite spectrum, I absolutely love sports or anything competitive, and I still want to be a racecar driving when I grow up! During football season you’ll find me cheering on the Philadelphia Eagles. Family is the most important aspect in life, and I value every minute with my loved ones, as time is very precious.
