    I was born and raised in Tucson. I love being outdoors and spending time with my family and my Dachshund Hank. After graduating high school I completed dental assisting school and began working as an assistant and in the front office. I quickly found a passion for the positive impact I have on a patients’ office experience, overall health and most importantly making a difference in a person’s self-esteem through their smile.
