I grew up in Montreal, Quebec, but I’ve lived in Arizona for 32 years. I’m very athletic – an avid runner – and used to have a strong interest in sports medicine. I’m not sure exactly how I got into dentistry, but I do know I’ve always cared for others and wanted to make a difference. I like to fix things and see a great end result, so dentistry definitely makes sense!
I’ve spent the past ten years working in community health and love the patients we work with. They’re always a pleasure to be around and appreciate the work we do. Before coming to Mountain Park, I worked in private practice as well as mobile dentistry, and I’ve always loved working with kids. Since I became a mom, I feel like a mom to all of the kids I work with.
My son plays travel hockey, so I consider myself a hockey mom and travel a lot when I’m not working. I can also speak French, and still have a lot of family living in Canada. I enjoy learning as much as I can from others and love hearing other peoples’ stories.
