I studied Dental Hygiene in Ottawa and previously worked as a Certified Dental Assistant before changing careers. I've had the opportunity to travel to Peru for a dental volunteer trip and it has given me a different outlook and greater appreciation for the access to dental care here in Canada. I would love to go to other parts of the world to provide oral health care where there isn't any
What I enjoy most about what I do is the ability to educate people on the relationship between oral health and their general health. I like getting to know and catching up with my patients during their appointments so it's not as “intimidating” as people may believe.
While I'm not working, I'm busy chasing my toddler son around and spending time with my family. When I get the chance, I love curling up with a good book or watching a great movie. I try to stay active so you may see me jogging around Comox or attending a local fitness class.
