With many years of experience in logistics, sales and management, I joined the dental industry during a difficult time in 2020. My goal was simple: help patients navigate insurance and get the care they deserve. Over the years, I’ve not only learned insurance ins and outs, but I’ve also gained a lot of knowledge about dental procedures, which allows me to better anticipate patients’ needs.
In addition to being the Business Manager, I’m also a proud new mom to the cutest baby girl in the world. When I’m not working or spending quality time with my baby girl, you’ll find me exploring new places and discovering new things through travel. I love my family and friends and there’s nothing better than spending quality time with them.
