After graduating from high school, the road unexpectedly led me to the great world of dentistry. After being in the dental field for over 9 years, I’ve come to learn a lot about dental terminology, dental insurances, and finances of dental treatment. I enjoy communicating with patients about their insurance coverage and making sure they are well-informed of all the details. In my spare time, I enjoy visiting my family in Fredericksburg, enjoying some relaxing me time and trying a new recipe in the kitchen. I also enjoy traveling and going on new adventures.
