I attended University of Michigan for my dental hygiene studies. 

After graduation I met my husband John and moved here to Grand Rapids. 

I have been working here since 2011. We have 3 boys… which may be why I am tired all the time! 

In my spare time I am busy carting my boys everywhere for their many activities. But, when I am not doing that, I enjoy scrapbooking, reading and photography.


I am a graduate of the GRCC Dental Hygiene program and have been working as a RDH for over 4 years. 

I love my job because not only do I get to teach my patients about oral hygiene, I also learn a lot from them, two of my favorite things in life are food and travel.

I am a mother of two, well actually 4 if you count my husband and English Mastiff, and we reside in Rockford. In my spare time, I love to cook, entertain, play with my kids and relax.


I graduated from Ross Medical in dental assisting in 2016.

I have been here since August 2018.

In my spare time I love to travel, camp, and spend time with my family, dog and cat.
