Front Desk

I have been in the dental field for over 30 years. I was actually a patient in the first office I worked in. I had thought about going to dental school, but I was talked into getting on the job training as a dental receptionist. I love what I do and have grown with every office I have worked in. I get the greatest pleasure meeting the patients and getting to know them and their families through listening to their stories. Over the years, I have built a strong rapport with our patients and I am committed to have each and every patient enjoy their visit to our office and assist them with all scheduling, payments, and insurance needs. I look forward to continuing my career with Dr. Tufa and our awesome team. I take pride in being the face and the voice of our practice and I am looking forward to retire someday here.

When I am not working, I enjoy taking long walks with our dog Maya and spending time with my daughter Melissa and my son Scott, my four sisters and all my nieces and nephews.

I have been in the dental field for just about ten years. Graduating with a honors degree in an accelerated program for dental assisting, and learning on the job in a dental reception role. I strive to help my patients understand their treatment in place and dental insurance benefits.

I learn on the job and in life daily. My family and I enjoy our free time near the water, weather in our kayaks, fishing or enjoying the sun. I have many house plants and love my garden grown from seed each year. We also love weekends away and enjoying new adventures. Our cat Lucy rules our home, super spoiled, and snuggly.

I can’t wait to learn about the patients and my role in my new dental home.
