Hygienist & Office Manager

Things you might not know about me:

  • I spent a month in East Africa after dental hygiene school and I would love to go back to see other parts of the continent.
  • I was stung by a stingray in FL and it was extremely painful.
  • I've gone skydiving once and although I am happy to cross it off my bucket list, I do not need to ever do it again.

I met Nate (Dr. Darling) before he started his own practice and have been working with him at Darling Dental since they first opened in 2003. I started out as his dental assistant and eventually became the office manager. I realized I wanted to expand my skills so I went to school to earn a degree in dental hygiene. My job now is split between office manager and dental hygienist. I feel fortunate to be able to utilize all of my skills and to have found such an amazing office to work in. When I'm not working I love to travel and hang out with family and friends.

I am committed to creating a positive dental experience while providing the best care possible. It is also important to me that I provide patients all the information necessary to create a happy and healthy smile.
