I've been in the dental field for 45 years, I know I don't look that old! I love what I do. I'm a native Oregonian and during my free time I teach water aerobics, play with my grandkids and watch Blazers court side. High school football on Friday nights is a must and i'm an avid golfer always up for a weekend tournament.
I'm new to the dental profession and I love it! I am such a people person and I really enjoy the face to face interaction with our patients and vendors. I'm a creative soul, I paint, knit, weave and do photography. I'm also a pretty darn good golfer and weekend camper/glamper.
I'm a native of northern California. I don't know what took me so long to get to Oregon! I moved to Oregon five years ago to pursue my dream of being a dental assistant. I adore all of our patients and treasure my interactions with them. I love my family, my son, and cooking shows, however not in that order. I'm a down and dusty softball player and I play short stop. I also enjoy crafting with my cricut machine and making great gifts.
