I graduated from Northwest Technical College in Moorehead, Minnesota with my degree in Dental Hygiene. Shortly after graduating, I made the move to Colorado and haven’t missed the Minnesota winters a bit! I started working at the practice in January of 2002. I love meeting new people, building a relationship with my patients, and helping them maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime. I strive to make your cleaning a gentle and positive experience.
I have been married to my husband, Mark, since 2006. We welcomed our son, Aiden, to our family in October 2010. We also have one dog, Abby. We enjoy camping, and spending time with family and friends.
I went to Pima Medical Institute in Westminister, Colorado. I’ve been a dental assistant and expanded duties for 5 years. I joined this practice in August 2008 but I’ve been working with Dr. Hedrick for the last 2 years. I have a very gentle touch when working with patients and want to make every experience a comfortable one.
I’ve been dating Andrew for the last eight years. We have two boxer dogs name Cleo and Capone. I enjoy going to the movies, shopping, and yoga.
I’ve been in dentistry approximately 17 years and have had the opportunity to work as a dental assistant for the majority of the time, which now benefits my current role. I am the Treatment Plan Coordinator and the Insurance Specialist. I work closely with Dr. Hedrick to offer you the best treatment options available.
A little about me, I am a transplant from Michigan. I’ve been in Colorado since 1989. My husband and I have 2 daughters and 2 adorable granddaughters. I spend the majority of my free time with my family and friends. I also am involved in a couple book study groups from our church.
It is my mission to provide you with all the information, answers and options to help you make an informed decision about your dental needs.
I am the Patient Coordinator and joined Dr Hedrick and the team in August of 2010. I am new to dentistry but have worked in a medical office for many years, most of my experience is in business management but I have enjoyed learning about the field of dentistry and most importantly have loved getting to know all of our patients.
Like most people in Colorado, I am a transplant. I grew up vacationing to Colorado every year and decided that this was the place I wanted to raise my family. So 6 years ago we packed up and moved from North Texas to North Denver and have loved every minute of it. While I wish my family lived closer, I can not imagine living anywhere else! I have a daughter, Katie, who is 16 and a son, Preston, who is 7. My kids are very involved in athletics so most of our free time is spent playing sports. We also enjoy going to the movies, shopping and enjoying all that Colorado has to offer!
