I became Certified and Registered Dental Assistant in 1995. I have worked exclusively with Dr. Haganman since 1998 and have attended many continuing education classes on esthetic dentistry and denture implants. I really enjoy working with patients and getting to know them. It is so interesting to follow their case from beginning to end to see the great final result. We have terrific doctors and a state-of-the-art practice with the latest technology.
I have 3 children and spend my free time chasing them around. I like spending time with family and friends and doing anything outdoors.

“When I’m not working, I love to hang out with my family. I have a 3-year-old daughter that keeps me busy! I’m also known as the ‘crazy dog lady’. I volunteer with a local animal shelter fostering and taking care of dogs. If I have had the pleasure to work with you, there is a good chance you have heard about my two crazy pups!”
