Practice Concierge

I am an expanded functions certified assistant with an additional certification as a specialized oral maxillofacial surgical technician. I have been caring for patients for over 30 years and am very lucky to be able to work in a field that I love.

My husband Rick and I have 2 lovely children (Jordan and Sarah Jo) and 2 beautiful granddaughters (Rylie and Hazel). We also have 4 wonderful fur children, 2 Border Collies mixes (Deogee and Lucy) and 2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels (Daisy Mae and Pooper) that rule our home. We are avid scuba divers, love archery, boating, photography and all the family time we can get.
