I graduated from the U in 2002 with Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene and in 2013 with my Master of Education. I have been a clinical dental hygienist, practice administrator, independent DH business owner(Colorado), trainer on digital imaging equipment and my true passion is DH education. I currently teach DH full time and practice clinically part time. I am very passionate about maintaining a high level of standards for our clinical and educational sectors. I am excited to be the current President Elect for MnDha and excited to create passion for our profession. I enjoy painting, being outdoors, gardening and most of all spending time with family and friends. I look forward to working with you all in the state of Minnesota.
