Since graduating from GTCC in 1976, I have enjoyed many years practicing dental hygiene, with 35 of them here at Family Dental Associates. Patients have become like my extended family; I thoroughly enjoy catching up with their lives at their appointments. In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, from working in the yard to bicycling. My husband and I are blessed with 3 daughters and their wonderful families.
