I've been with Rockton Dental for 13 years. I love to network with several offices throughout the week and end my work week with you! During the week, my husband and I tackle taking our two boys to all their sports. When we are not on the school bench supporting our kids, we spend our free time at our campground with our Jellystone Families. When we get a minute, my husband and I love to ride off into the sunset on our motorcycles. If you see me on a Friday, I'm usually excited to see you and what will finally be the weekend!
