I grew up and have lived most of my life in the Quinte region. I started my dental career in 1996 when I graduated dental assisting from Durham College in Oshawa, Ontario. In 2003 I graduated from Canadore College in North Bay Ontario and received my dental hygiene diploma with honors. This is a career I have always enjoyed. I strive to help every person with care and consideration regarding their dental hygiene needs. My interests outside of dental hygiene involve being with my family outdoors which include hiking, gardening, camping, and downhill skiing (in Batawa).
