I have been working in the dental field for 40 years in which the last 12 years have been at Dayspring Pediatric Dentistry. It has been a true pleasure to have formed relationships with our families and to see the children grow. I have been married to my wonderful husband Dave for 39 years and we have two grown children, Cyndi and David. We also have a four year old granddaughter named Addilyn, or shall we say princess Addilyn! We enjoy our weekends spending time with our children and never getting tired of hearing “Come on Mama and Papa, let’s play!”
Dental Assistant and Front Office
I’ve worked at Dayspring Pediatric Dentistry since 2001. I started as a dental assistant, but now mainly work in the front office. I have been cross-trained in all areas of dentistry and enjoy helping out the clinical team when needed. The best part of my job is getting to know our patients and families and helping to create a positive dental experience for them. I grew up in the St. Charles area and enjoy working in my hometown. I have three children – Braydon, Gabriella, and Aubree who keep me very busy. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family.
I graduated from Kishwaukee Community College in 2003 with an Associate Degree in Applied Science. I then went on to attend the Dental Hygiene program at Rock Valley College where I graduated in 2007. Upon my graduation, I was awarded the Colgate Star for excellence and commitment to the hygiene profession. I am also an active member of the American Dental Hygienists Association. After Graduation I started working for Dayspring and have been there ever since. I enjoy working with children and educating them about their dental health. My husband Cory and I have two amazing boys, Noah and Nash. They both love to play sports and being outside. In my free time I enjoy reading and participating in my sons' sports and school activities.
I have been in the dental field since 2010. I started at Dayspring as a dental assistant intern from Elgin Community College and went on to earn my degree as a dental hygienist from Harper College in 2014. The best part of working with children is helping them feel comfortable in the chair and watching them grow through the years. My husband, Joe, and I have two young boys and another baby on the way! In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my family and spending time outside.
