recently joined us as a dental assistant. She has lived in Charleston for the past 10 years, but previously lived in the Rocky Mountains and England. Growing up in a military family and moving around has taught her the love of family, life, and hard work ethics. Her motto is that a little elbow grease and a lot of hard work will always triumph. When she is not helping others achieve their dream smile she is giving people a reason to! She lives a very active lifestyle, has a passion for running, and believes being outdoors is the best therapy.
