Tell us a little about yourself (where you are from, how you got into the field you are in, and time at Freedom Dental Care)
I am from Elizabethtown, PA and moved to Maryland about 5 years ago. I love being around people and knew I wanted a career that is hands on and different everyday. I did a report on Dental Hygiene in High School and decided that it was the career for me!
What are your favorite things to do in your spare time?
I enjoy running, being active in my community, traveling and spending time with my friends, family and my husband Joe.
Share an experience with a patient that has made a lasting impression on you.
There hasn't been one specific incident, but it always feels good when a patient opens up and trusts me. I see many people with anxiety and know the dental office isn't the most fun place to come and I try to make it a more comfortable setting.
What is your favorite part of your job?
I've been with Freedom Dental Care for over 4 years now and I enjoy getting to know the families that come to the office. It always surprises me when they remember fun facts about me. :)
What is a little known talent you have unrelated to your profession?
I don't know if this is a talent, but I am extremely organized.
