I am the office coordinator at South Lake Pediatric Dentistry. I have been working in dentistry for 17 years. I have always been interested in healthcare however; I found my passion to be in pediatrics. I love waking up in the morning and going to a job that I enjoy. It is very rewarding to see the progress in the patients that we see. I specifically enjoy pediatric dentistry because I love working with children and interacting with them on a daily basis.
I was born in snowy Tyler, Minnesota. I moved to Charlotte in 1999 and I love it here. Before moving to Charlotte I lived in Salt Lake City, Boise, Daveport, Nashville, Knoxville, and Raleigh. I love the warm weather in Charlotte, spending time at the lake or hiking the mountains. Outside of work I stay busy spending time with my children, my grandchildren, and dog “babies.”
I was born in Norwich, Connecticut. My family and I moved to Florida and lived there for 24 years. I moved to the Charlotte area about eight years ago. I have always loved the dental field so I decided to pursue it in 2006 and I have enjoyed it thoroughly. I have always enjoyed working with children so when the opportunity came to work at South Lake Pediatric Dentistry, I was very pleased. I enjoy how children express themselves, their honesty, and being able to share the Tooth Fairy with them.
My other passion is cooking and creating my own recipes. I also enjoy gardening and decorating. A random fact about me is that over my lifetime I have owned, found, or fostered more 40 cats.
I was born in Ecuador, South America; my family and I moved to New York City in 1980. I started working in dentistry when I was 15 years old and continued to work in the dental field while attending college. Dental assisting has given me the opportunities to work in many different dental specialties, as well as having my own dental lab while living in California. I love working with children because it is so rewarding to see them smile!
My husband and I have had the pleasure of living in many different states. I am so glad that I can call Southlake Pediatric Dentistry my home.
I’ve been a dental assistant here at SLPD for more than two years. I’m one of the few Charlotteans in the area. I have a beautiful four-year-old little girl who makes life fun. I spend my weekends on the lake, hanging out with friends, or taking weekend trips to Charleston or Topsail Island.
