Last year, if you would have told me that in a year I would be a dental assistant, I wouldn’t have believed you! I am very new to dentistry and came to this job seeking understanding and actually having a fear of dentists. I wanted to learn about the mouth and the body in hopes that it would help me calm my own fear. So far, so good! I enjoy the synergy of science and artistry. In this setting, I have found that I enjoy helping others and making others with the same fear be more at ease.
Originally from Michigan, I moved to the Wolf Creek area for the heavy snow and dreamy winters! I initially stumbled upon Pagosa Springs on a road trip with the intention of visiting the hot springs and hiking. I quickly realized that I could ski, hike, garden, kayak, do a little bit of photography, blend teas, and enjoy different arts and crafts all right here! That was it–I moved! I have found a life where I can continue to seek inner peace and resilience while being a compassionate and empathetic person. Additionally, I have found my own little family which includes Jake and our two dogs: Thelma and Louise.
