I have been a registered nurse for 28 years. After earning my degree at The University of Texas, Austin I was originally a neonatal intensive care nurse. I have been in Virginia since 2002 and have worked NICU as well as other areas. I have been at Smiles for almost two years as the nurse assistant. I love being able to help people feel more relaxed when receiving the dental treatments they need. Anxiety plays a very large role in the need for sedation dentistry. I’m there with patients as they go to sleep and then when they wake up and breath a huge sigh of relief. It is rewarding to be part of a team that enables people to be more comfortable at the dentist.
My husband and I have three adult children still in the area whom we adore. We love travel, good Texas bar-b-q, any sports team from Texas, and our five fur-babies at home.
