About Me

"Be yourself, everyone else is taken" Oscar Wilde

Shy? Yep! That's me! It took a lot of courage to publish this site. My goal is to share information to the dental hygiene community in hopes to inspire and help you grow as a healthcare professional.

While growing up in Texas, I made the decision to begin a career in the dental field. I was afforded the opportunity to start as a dental assistant at a small private practice where I received on the job training. This is where my journey in the dental field started which led to a passion to grow in the healthcare field.  

After marriage, several moves and having two kids, I felt the need to continue my education in the profession by attending dental hygiene school where I graduated with honors.

 

With over 23 years of dental experience, I have worked in both private and corporate practices, that include general, cosmetic, and periodontal.

 

I am a practicing dental hygienist, a certified dental assistant, the Director of Continuing Education for “A Tale of Two Hygienists” podcast, a research assistant for “Connect the Dents”, and blogger with an aspiration to publish a book soon.
