Raised as the daughter of a dentist, her first experience in the dental office as a young girl was helping with every job possible. Her first full-time position was as a dental assistant, a career that lasted for over twenty-one years.
She went on to train new dental assistants as the director of her own dental assisting school and then into the management of multiple practices. For over ten years she has coached, trained and helped dental practices across the country reach new levels of productivity as a Practice Advisor with the Total Patient Service Institute.
She dedicates time each year to dental humanitarian expeditions to third world countries. She is an avid gardener who enjoys an occasional motorcycle ride with her boyfriend of thirty-three years who also happens to be her husband, Dave! They are the proud parents of two boys who they have successfully launched into professional careers of their own.
