I really enjoy being able to help patients with their overall oral health and supporting them as they gain confidence in their smile! My day involves a combination of patient care, sterilization, inventory, and lab duties. I work chairside as the dentists examine and treat patients, making every effort to keep our patients comfortable before, during, and after treatment. I’ve been part of Wind City Dental since 2011 and love that we all care about our patients as people!
Born and raised in Casper, I have a loving husband and two beautiful daughters, along with three dogs and a pot belly pig! My family and I enjoy traveling, camping, and spending a lot of time outdoors.
I enjoy helping our patients and making them feel comfortable at the dental office. My days are busy, as I offer patient care, handle sterilization and lab duties, and inventory management. I also take X-rays and obtain dental records to prepare for treatment and provide chairside assistance as the doctors examine and treat patients. During procedures, I help the doctor while keeping our patient comfortable. I started working at Wind City Dental in 2015 and am thrilled to be part of a fun, cheerful group!
I was born and raised here in Casper. My wonderful fiancé and I have four children between us. We love to spend time together, especially when we’re barbecuing, and we like being outdoors and watching our children’s activities.
I like helping our patients develop great smiles and improve their overall health. As an assistant, I’m kept busy. In addition to patient care, I handle lab duties, sterilization, and track inventory. I also work chairside, assisting the dentists as they examine patients and during procedures.

I became part of the Wind City Dental team in 2011 and really appreciate that we feel like a family, united in our desire to keep our patients smiling and healthy!

Registered Dental Hygienist
I enjoy educating patients about their individual dental health and being part of their journey to a happy, healthy smile. I try to create appointments that are as thorough, enjoyable, and comfortable as possible, to build a trusting relationship. I work with patients and the dental team to educate, assess, treat, and prevent oral disease. I do this by documenting a patient’s oral health, and taking X-rays and photos to ensure a thorough exam, cleaning, and treatment plan can be performed. Using different instruments and therapies, I remove hard and soft deposits from teeth and gums to promote oral health. I joined the team in 2014 and love how our doctors and my teammates are united in the goal of providing the highest level care to our patients.
In my personal life, I like to travel and experience new things. I enjoy camping in the mountains and relaxing at the beach. I live here in Casper with my boyfriend and our two crazy cats, who keep us entertained. In addition to working as a dental hygienist, I worked for three years at my dad’s veterinary office, where I was head of the dental department for cats and dogs!

I love the variety of my days and how I get to meet and spend time with lots of great people!
