Born and raised in Des Moines. Love my dogs, the outdoors, The Cubs and Iowa Hawkeyes. Been a hygienist almost 9 years. Went to DMACC for hygiene and Simpson College for under grad.

When asked why did you become a dental hygienist her response was:

“I was getting an implant done and my doc at the time asked why I had never thought about being a hygienist because I’m so OCD. Lol. Then went home and my mom had sent me an article about dental hygiene. Then the next morning I got an email about dental hygiene from dmacc. I took that as a sign that I was meant to be a hygienist. I went back to school at 31 to become one. Best choice I have made in my life.”
