Meet Our Team
I have been a part of this office for over 6 years, with Neighborhood Smiles for almost 5 years, and have been a dental hygienist for over 8 years. I received my Dental Hygiene degree from Western Technical College. Prior to being a hygienist, I worked as a dental assistant for 9 years. Keeping patients happy and comfortable is very important to me.I am recently married, and have 8 nieces and 5 nephews! I love to spend my free time with my family. I enjoy time on the river during the summer, kayaking, and playing volleyball with friends. I love the warm weather!
I joined our team two years ago as a chair-side assistant, and now greet you when you enter our office. I am here to help our patients maximize their dental benefits and to explain our convenient payment options. I love welcoming both current and new patients to the office.My husband, Gary, and I have two children that were born and raised in the Onalaska/ La Crosse community; we also have five grandchildren, each of whom we are very proud! I enjoy spending time with my children, grandchildren, and extended family.
