I have been married for sixteen years to my friend and partner, Mike. We are the proud parents of three beautiful and smart daughters. For fun, I enjoy interior decorating, photography, and spending time outdoors. I attended Worthington Christian High School and then Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana. I have my Expanded Functions Dental Assisting license from The Ohio State University. I have worked in the dental field for twenty years. I worked first as a chairside dental assistant, and then as an expanded functions dental assistant. My time gaining dental experience as an assistant opened up the opportunity to work for Aegis Progressive Solutions, a dental consulting company. My time at Aegis was invaluable. It afforded me the pleasure of traveling around the country and the privilege to work with amazing Dentists and their staff, helping them to grow their dental practices. For the past five years, I have worked as the director of marketing and clinical coordinator at Cross Creek Dental Care in Marion, Ohio. It is here that I have had the great fortune to learn from Dr. Leon, my dental mentor and fellow visionary of First Impressions Dental Assisting Program. First Impressions is a labor of love, my opportunity to give back to the dental community and to students that are looking for a truly rewarding career.
