I began my career in dentistry in 2011 just outside of Washington D.C. where I was raised. In 2019, my husband and I moved away from the politics of DC to the sunshine state of Arizona. When not in the dental office you can find me on the ice (ice hockey coach and past national player). on the rocks (past sponsored rock climber), or in nature rescuing wildlife as I am passionate volunteer for Liberty Wildlife here in Phoenix. Love spending time outdoors and am always up for what the wild world has to offer!
I am currently working as a dental assistant with the hopes of becoming a dentist. My interest in dentistry sparked in college and I have been working towards that goal ever since. I also attended the American Institute of Dental Assisting to become certified, and I have been fortunate to gain more hands-on experience and knowledge of the dental field during my time here. As I continue my dental journey and apply to dental school, my goal is to keep learning and improving myself in the profession. In my spare time, I enjoy photography, reading, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.
I began a career in dentistry in 1994 after attending Apollo College Dental Assisting program and started as an Orthodontic Assistant, then briefly became Co-owner and Manager of a local dental practice. I also have a passion for skincare and maintain my license in Aesthetics. I grew up in San Jose, CA with my mother and spent many summers in AZ to visit with my father on the Indian Reservation. I eventually moved back to Arizona after high school and have raised my family here. When I'm not marketing I'm enjoying family gatherings, revamping recycled antiques, and practicing yoga.
I love to see people smile that's why dentistry has been a life long career. I'm originally from California but like cactus so Arizona was the obvious choice. My favorite thing to do is try new local restaurants with my teenage daughters and tube down the salt river.
I began my dental career in 1975, received my Assisting Certification at Maricopa Tech Community College and attended Phoenix College for general studies. When I was eight years old my fathers’ work transferred the family to Arizona from Texas. When I'm not assisting the doctor, I enjoy an active lifestyle with running, hiking, reading and going to the gym along with taking cruises and traveling to Rocky Point.
Born and raised in Southern Italy (Sicily), I have lived in the USA for 23 years with my lovely husband, Bery, and my son, Umberto, who I’m enjoying fully before he leaves for college. I love cooking traditional Sicilian recipes and spending time entertaining family and friends. In my free time, I volunteer for many organizations such as St. Vincent De Paul; where I help the underprivileged and homeless change their lives with their dental needs.
Dental Hygiene is my world. I love caring for patients and I’m very passionate about their dental health. As a compassionate and caring person, my goal every day is to create a fun and enjoyable environment for patients who have reservations about spending time in the dental chair. I have been in the dental field for over 15 years. I am a graduate of ASU with a Bachelor’s both in Chemistry and Biology. I also completed my Dental Hygiene program at NAU. Currently, I’m working on my Master’s in Dental Hygiene.
The words that I live by are:
“Make people feel better about themselves and you will be a happier a better person”
After a few years as General Manager for an ice rink here in the valley, I found myself in the dental field. I was fortunate to start my dental management career with a cosmetic restoration and implant specialist. It gave me a chance to experience a wide range of dental treatment and concerns. I am extremely fascinated by the human body . I absolutely love everything I have learned over the past few years. I am always happy to help our patients better understand their dental treatment and how to best utilize their dental benefits. I am a huge advocate for technology and also pleased to help integrate it in our office. When I am not at the office, you can find me at one of the valley’s many ice rinks with my son. My husband and I spend most of our family time on trips to watch our son play both ice and roller hockey. We are also active in both the Buddhist and Veteran communities in Arizona
