Expanded Functions Dental Assistant
I started working at Tipton Park Dentistry in August 2014. I've been a dental assistant for 5 years and earned my Expanded Functions Certificate from the Indiana Dental Academy. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and dogs.
I graduated with a degree in dental hygiene from IU School of Dentistry in Indianapolis. I have practced hygiene for 26 years and truly enjoy my patients. I am married to my wonderful husband, Ben, and we have 2 kids. Trevor is a junior at Purdue and Janelle is a senior at Columbus North. My family is such a blessing.
I was born and raised in Seymour, Indiana. I earned my degree in dental hygiene and license for local anesthesia from the Indiana University School of Dentistry. I have been a member of the American Dental Hygiene Association since 2012. I have always had a strong passion for dentistry and I love being a dental hygienist. I enjoy the one-on-one interaction with patients, getting to know them and teaching them about dental health. I live in Brownstown with my wonderful husband, Will, and our puppy, Charlie. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and traveling.
Born and raised a Hoosier, I am proud to call Columbus home! I had the privilege of graduating from Butler University with a degree in Physician Assisting. While Adam completed his naval obligation in Virginia, I worked as surgical PA in orthopedics and urgent care. After moving to Columbus, I worked in spine surgery for 7 years. In January 2014, I made the decision to help out in the 'family business.' I have the pleasure of working with my husband on a daily basis (luckily, he's a nice guy). The career change has also allowed me to be more available for our boys. Our oldest will be a Freshman at Purdue and our youngest is a Freshman at Columbus North. Outside of work, I love to walk and exercise, grow flowers and vegetables and spend time with friends and family.
