Scheduling Coordinator and Registered Dental Assistant
I'm a Los Angeles native, born and raised there; my family still lives there.
I decided to become a Registered Dental Assistant after high school. I have now been in the field for 19 years. I have worked for all kinds of specialists throughout my career. Being fluent in English and Spanish has helped me along way.
I have been married for 18 wonderful years. When I'm not working, I enjoy outdoor activities. My husband and I love to do volunteer work, we're Bible teachers. I also love spending time with family and friends, and i'm a big animal lover. We've rescued different animals over the years.
Having my priorities set in life make me enjoy all I do.
