She worked in a nursing home with dementia/Alzheimer's patients for eight years before entering the dental field. As a hygienist she enjoys what she does, and it shows. She educates patients on their dental health and also has the ability to connect to every patient no matter what their age. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her two children Alexia and AJ and her rescue pets.
