I was born and raised in a small rural town in northern Illinois. I’m a mom of two and am blessed to have my family close by. I enjoy live music, great food, time with friends, my church, riding my motorcycle and podcasts!
I was introduced to lab work when I was 21 years old (now 38). I fell in love with dentures and never looked back. I’ve always had a yearning to grow and do more in my career. Denturism is a practice that has intrigued me for years and I’m definitely feeling ready for another growing opportunity. I have a strong Christian faith and firmly believe that God has put this dream in my heart. I have lots of ambition to help bring new career opportunities to other removable technicians and better care and dentures to patients here in Illinois and one day for the entire country.
