I have been in dentistry for more than 30 years.  I wanted to be part of a dental team that is committed to their patients, continuous learning, and keeping up with advancing technology.  I enjoy working at Brighton Healthy Smiles.  Our doctors and staff are so caring and compassionate.  This job is so interesting; each patient has a different need and each case is unique.  The combination of working so closely with patients and the incredible opportunity to learn and grow makes this the perfect job for me.  When not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching my son’s sports, gardening, cooking, and doing things outdoors.

I have had the pleasure of working in the dental field for over 15 years. I love working with Dr. Eick and Dr. Birchmeier. The staff and patients here are truly amazing. I am especially proud of my Russian Nesting Doll collection; you’ll never guess how many I actually have. Fall is a great time of year as I frequent Punkin’ Chunkin’ events, and was once part of a nationally ranked team.

I forgot to write my bio so my hobbies will be updated monthly, check back soon!
