I was born in San Antonio, TX and moved to Ohio in 1979. I have two sons and one precious granddaughter. I look forward to the weekends that I get to baby-sit for her and cherish spending time with my family. I started working for Burns Dental in October of 2014 and truly love working with the staff and patients.

Certified Dental Assistant


In 2002, I went to Hondros Business College in Fairborn, Oh and obtained a real estate certificate. In 2004, I attended the Upper Valley JVS in Piqua, OH and took dental assistant classes and in 2007 I obtained my radiography license. I also obtained my phlebotomy certification at Apollo Career Center. What I love about being a dental assistant is meeting each patient and furthering my education in the field.

I was born and raised in a small farm town in Indiana. After working in a manufacturing office for 10 years, I chose to return to college. I explored several different medical fields and eventually decided on dental hygiene – and I have loved it ever since! I graduated from James A. Rhodes State College with an Associates Degree in Applied Sciences, with a major in Dental Hygiene. I enjoy providing my patients with oral hygiene instruction and giving them the necessary tools to regain a healthy smile and continued oral health. Along with working as a hygienist, I love the outdoors and enjoy spending time with family.

After realizing nursing was not the right fit for me, I decided to pursue dental hygiene and graduated from Rhodes State College with my Associates Degree in Applied Sciences majoring in dental hygiene. I look forward to helping patients improve not only their oral health, but their overall health as well. When I am not at the office, I am spending time with my husband and three children.
