Education: Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health
When I was growing up, I remember how good my dentist was and I always thought dentistry was really interesting. Not many kids or even adults enjoy going to the dentist and I always wanted to change that mindset.
Getting to know patients and working with people is what made me interested in healthcare, I wanted to have an open connection with people. When I was a dental student, I came to Mountain Park and I just loved the approach to healthcare. Everyone worked together, and the amount of teamwork displayed was so great to see – that’s why I came back.
I’m married, and we have two children. I come from a big family of six girls. During my free time, I like to watch football, spend time with my daughter, son, and husband, and explore different foods. Most people don’t know that I like cheesy jokes, the funnier the better.
