What is your role at Park West Dentistry?
I’m one of our hygienists, the original actually, since coming on board at the end of 2004. I have taken a couple of hiatuses over the years when my children came along but always come back; this isn’t a workplace you walk away from easily. It’s that awesome. While I am a hygienist by training, I spend a lot of time doing a lot of other stuff. I assist when I’m needed, which is seldom as Janet’s so capable. I also manage all of our social media, newsletters and website content, which is tons of fun! Over the years, Dr. Seay and I have taken many advanced dental photography courses, so I keep all of our images organized and web galleries up-to-date, etc. She shoots and I take it from there!
Tell us about your family, pets included.
My husband, Michael, and I will celebrate 16 years of marriage this summer! He’s taking me on a trip. (I’m planning it.) For 20 years, he’s buying me an Airstream. (Shhh.) We have three amazing kids, Heidi (6), Wyatt (5) and Ava (10 months). We also have two Golden Retrievers, Tilly and Bear, both three years old. Truth be told, it’s a real circus at my house.
Where are you from?
I’m from Valdosta, Ga. If you don’t know where that is, I-75 intersects it and you can’t go any further south without crossing into Florida. It was a great place to grow up.
What job could you never do?
White water rafting guide. I hate white water rafting.
What is your other dream job, besides your job at Park West Dentistry?
Rock star, duh!
What was your favorite concert?
All of them. I love live music. Any genre, even heavy metal.
What’s your favorite date night restaurant?
Any place I can wear my jeans and chucks.
Tell us something true about yourself that no one would expect.
I don’t have a belly button. (paying attention?!)
