I have been in dental for over 25 years, I enjoy working with people and helping patients obtain a beautiful smile. I also volunteer in Alaska, working with the Unangan (Aleut), by providing preventive dental hygiene services to their community. I enjoy spending time reading and being outdoors boating, hiking, and skiing, and spending time with my family.
