Volunteered for a Red Cross program in which I worked at a US Air Force dental clinic. I received 6 weeks of dental assistant training, then worked at the clinic for the next 5 months as a volunteer assistant. I am certified to take x-rays and have taken courses in first responder first aid. I have been an assistant for 12 years. Over the years I've worked at four different practices where I've worked with dentists of all ages, backgrounds and specialties.
In my spare time I enjoy knitting, sewing, taking ceramics classes and going on adventures with my two little boys, Everett (2010) and Julian (2013).
