“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
was born in Phoenix, Arizona into a large family of nine children (seven brothers and one sister). I have many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. I am married and enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My husband and I have traveled across the Western States camping, fishing, hiking, and snow skiing, and we also enjoy travelling overseas. We visited many countries in Europe, but primarily spent time in Italy. I have relatives in Northern Italy and have traveled from the north to the south and all points in between. I stay active exercising, practicing yoga, and meditation. I love living in Phoenix, as it is beautiful outdoors for so many months of the year. I was first attracted to dentistry as a patient when I had braces. I loved my dental hygienist and was encouraged by her and my orthodontist to go into the dental hygiene profession. I received my Associate’s Degree in Dental Hygiene from Phoenix College and my Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from Northern Arizona University. My favorite thing about dentistry is helping my patients to achieve and maintain happy, healthy smiles.
