I have been a dental assistant 16 years, having graduated from DCI in 2004. What I love most about my job is my direct involvement with my patient’s treatment and helping them feel better about themselves with a new smile. I’m also very much a people person and I love to get to know my patients. I have been teaching dental assisting at DCI for 5 years and love the interactions I receive from my students and the joy on their faces when they master a new skill. My husband and I have 2 daughters Kaylee (19) and Abby (14) and 2 very spoiled schnauzers Gus and Lola. I love spending time with my family, wine tasting, reading, and binge watching Netflix.
