I started my dental career as a Dental Therapist, and then went back to school to study Dental Hygiene in Saskatchewan over 25 years ago. I took a few years off to raise my two children while having the good fortune of living in France and Spain. I’ve worked most of my career in Calgary and have enjoyed volunteering as a hygienist in several third world countries with Kindness in Action.I grew up on a farm in rural Saskatchewan and have longed for that sense of community away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Now that my children are away at university, my husband and I made the decision to move to Cochrane. We love it here. My time away from the office is spent with my husband and our two rescue cocker spaniels at our trailer where we love to kayak, fish, hike and spend time around the campfire. We love to travel and spend time with our families both in Canada and the U.K. I’m happy to be part of a new dental family at Sunset Ridge Dental with Dr.Kerr. I look forward to meeting and providing you with thorough, gentle and professional care.
I graduated from the Vancouver College of Dental Hygiene in 2017 and went on to start my career in Medicine Hat, as that is where I grew up. I was born in Calgary so I have always wanted to be back in the area. I fell in love with Cochrane for the small-town feel and I love the mountain views, so I decided to make the move in the fall of 2018. I have known since I was in elementary school that I wanted to be a hygienist as I have always loved going to the dentist. It is through my positive experiences that i want to help other people become more comfortable in the dental setting. I love meeting new people and helping patients with anxiety, overcome their fears or at least try to make them more comfortable while in my chair.
When I’m not at work I love exploring the outdoors, traveling and spending time with my family and friends. I am so fortunate to be working at Sunset Ridge Dental with Dr.Kerr and staff. I look forward to meeting you and providing you with all your dental hygiene needs.
