I graduated from Diablo Valley College and have been working with the office since 2006. I love hiking, jogging, and swimming!
I have been a dental hygienist since 1971, working in various offices as well as a periodontal office before starting here in 1991. I love my profession and love this office! Some of my hobbies include gardening, sewing, crocheting, drawing, and many forms of handcrafts. I also love to cook and eat!
My experience in the dental field started in 1995. I was a dental assistant for nine years. Then decided I wanted to do more for patients and went back to school to the hygiene program. In 2007, I graduated from Santa Rosa Junior College in Santa Rosa, California. I've been a practicing hygienist at this office since 2004.
I love what I do and always enjoy helping patients with their dental needs and educating them on how to achieve optimal oral health, which in turn contributes to overall health.
When time and energy allows, I have some fun driving my car at the racetrack doing HPDE (high precision driving events). I also energize on doing arts and crafts such as painting, sewing, and more!
I have been in this office since 1968, working Saturdays while I was in college, and full time during my summer vacations as a chairside dental assistant. I have been a dental hygienist in this office for over 43 years! My hobbies vary from teaching cake decorating to being the owner/designer of my fine silver jewelry, fused glass and photography business.
