I have been in the dental field since 2007, and am excited to be a member of the Lakehead Family Dental team. I absolutely love working as a dental receptionist and couldn’t picture myself anywhere else. Outside of work my partner Adam and I have a three year old son named Carter, and as a family we love to be outdoors, some of our favourite hobbies include fishing, camping and hiking.


As a dental hygienist, I have had the privilege of working with an outstanding team.  I take pride in providing excellent care to every patient who walks through our doors and building personal relationships along the way. It brings me great joy to see familiar and friendly faces return to our practice. When I'm not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my loving husband and our three adorable dogs. We love to explore the outdoors, from fishing to hiking, and enjoy quality time with our loved ones. I am dedicated to providing the utmost care and professionalism in my work, and I am committed to continuing my education and staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in the field.  


I graduated from dental hygiene in 1996 and I am thrilled to be a part of the Lakehead Family Dental team.  I enjoy working in a positive, caring environment and providing the best care for our patients.  Outside of work you can find me at the hockey rinks with my husband and two boys, in my kitchen cooking, or out for a run.


Hello, I am a highly motivated dental hygienist with a passion for providing exceptional patient care. Working at Lakehead has been an incredible experience, as I have been able to build close relationships with patients and fellow dental staff. I particularly cherish the moments when patients share photos of their beloved pets, which brings a sense of warmth and familiarity to the clinical environment. Throughout my career, I have honed my skills in providing high-quality dental care, and I take pride in my ability to create a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere for my patients. My commitment to patient satisfaction is reflected in my attention to detail and my ability to listen and respond to their unique needs. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time outdoors during the summer, whether it's camping, fishing or hiking.
