I began my career as the Administrative Assistant/Academic Advisor for the Dental Hygiene Program in the spring of 1998. I have the great pleasure of assisting students as they prepare to enter all three of our Dental Hygiene Programs, help them navigate the rigors of day-to-day life as a student, and celebrate their many accomplishments along the way. Additionally, I provide administrative support to the faculty in the Division of Dental Hygiene. In 2006 I was inducted into Nu Chapter, Sigma Phi Alpha Dental Hygiene Honor Society as an honorary member. I also received the University of Michigan Spirit of Excellence Award for outstanding service to the University in 2006 and in 2016 I received the Candace J. Johnson Award for Staff Excellence. In my free time, I enjoy camping, biking, and spending time with my family.
