I always knew I wanted to work directly with people in some form of healthcare. I volunteered in various fields and fell in love with dentistry. Even after 26 years, I am still loving my profession and the work that I do on a daily basis. Becoming a dental hygienist also has a wonderful work/life balance that has accommodated my family of 6.
Public health has always been my passion and serving a population within a community health center has always been a professional goal of mine. The Culture of Care and Mission of Adelante is what attracted me to this specific community health center.
If I wasn’t working directly in patient care I would likely be in education. Healthcare itself involves a lot of educating patients and I really enjoy that aspect of my profession!
I love anything baseball related. I played softball for many, many year and all of our kids have played baseball since they were very young. I have enjoyed coaching a few of them but my favorite role is baseball mom and cheering from the stands.
I collect Rosie the Riveter memorabilia and am obsessed with anything pickle.
