I grew up mostly in Contra Costa and Solano Counties. My family had a summer cabin near the river where we spent lots of family vacations. I permanently moved to Forestville when I was a sophomore in high school. I now reside in Santa Rosa with my husband, Lee. I started my career in dentistry with NorCal Pediatric Dentistry in 2016 as a sterilization technician and then did on the job training to get my RDA license. I received my RDA license in November 2017. I love working with children and providing them with a fun and happy experience at the dentist.
I obtained my RDA certificate in 2011 after completing my undergraduate requirements in San Diego, California. I graduated from the RDA program at Santa Rosa Junior College. I joined NorCal Pediatric Dentistry in 2016. I enjoy working with children and educating them and their parents on the importance of proper dental hygiene and preventative care to overall health. I look forward to providing the highest level of care to your children.
