Hygienist Assistant Franklin TNMy dental background started with dental assisting. I attended the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and completed the dental assisting program through Sixth District in Columbia, TN. I hold additional certifications in radiology, nitrous oxide monitoring, coronal polishing, and sealant application. In the clinical aspect of dentistry, I have always had a passion for working with pediatric patients and helping children overcome any fears and feeling comfortable when visiting the dentist. After several years of dental assisting experience, transitioning into the role of Office Manager has been such a great fit for me. I love the organizational side of the office and helping everything run smoothly. My background in the clinical side of the dental office also helps me to be more knowledgeable when dealing with the day to day operations of practice management.

I am a local of Franklin, TN and love this area. My husband Judd and I have a son, Everett and a playful Goldendoodle, Copper. We love being outside, traveling and being on the water any chance we get.
