I was born and raised in Phoenix. I am married with three amazing children; two daughters and a son. Away from the office, I am busy chauffeuring them to school, sports and church events. When my husband and I are not catering to our kids’ activities, you can find us on the softball field playing competitive slow pitch and taking advantage of the beautiful Arizona weather. I also love burying myself in a good DIY project any time I have some spare time. I started in the insurance industry before making the move into the dental field. My years of experience in insurance allows me to better help our patients understand their coverage. My mother was a dental assistant, so I was lucky to have grown up learning about the dental field and having the best experiences. Fun fact: Dr. Dougherty extracted my 2 front teeth after an accident when I was about 5 years old and I still like him. When I was little, l always enjoyed being in the dental office and pretending to work in the front office playing on the phones and sitting chair-side assisting the doctors. Now, I actually get to do those things and get paid for it!
