“It’s a beautiful thing when passion and career come together”. After searching for the perfect career I finally found it in dentistry. I Graduated from Daytona State College with honors. Other than interning, this is the first office that I’ve worked in since graduating the dental assisting program and I’m so happy that I have the opportunity to work with this wonderful team everyday. Outside of work I’m a mother a little girl and a wife. I also have fur babies, three dogs and a horse. I look forward to seeing my current patients and hopefully meeting new ones!
