Married to a Denver Native we moved back to Denver 21 years ago from Kansas City. While teaching I have also been very involved in the process of job placement and clinical externship. I also work within the community with Dentists visiting nursing home patients to examine and work on their Smiles, giving them dentures and teeth to improve their overall health.
Being a HOSA advisor for 4 years I have taken students to both State Leadership Conferences as well as National Leadership Conferences. My background of Dental Assisting has given me the knowledge and experience to impact the students while working closely with the community. I enjoy teaching the students the Medical Sciences, the growth of my student’s education is so rewarding to me as well as working together with the community to share the education and work experience. I am a mom of three children who attend Adams 12 and during time off enjoy camping and playing sports with the kids.
