I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Swanson and her team since 2013 and moved into the Business Administrator role in 2014.
I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know the patients and helping them in any way that I can. I have been fortunate to work in the dental industry for over 15 years and hold a degree in Business Management with a minor in Human Resources. When not at the office I love spending time with my husband and three children. I also enjoy boating, walking and reading but most of all watching my children participating in their many activities.
I am a graduate of the University of Minnesota Dental Hygiene Program and have found my career to be very fulfilling. Building relationships with the patients and seeing improved results in their oral health has always been my goal.
I am happy to be reunited with Dr. Swanson after working together for 18 years, plus reconnecting with patients has been rewarding. Working alongside Dr. Swanson’s team of skilled professionals makes each day satisfying as we provide individual treatment to each patient.
When not spending time with my family, I enjoy gardening and reading.
After graduating from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI, I began my dental hygiene career in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. In 1984, my husband and I moved to the Twin Cities. I have been a dental hygienist in this practice since then.
It has been very rewarding and my pleasure to work with my patients, helping them to achieve and maintain their oral health. Our patients are wonderful!!
My hobbies include singing (Sweet Adelines), gardening, reading and staying in touch with my five grandchildren.
I’m a well-rounded assistant of 20+ years. My experiences range from geriatric, prosthodontic, oral surgery and of course, general dentistry. Getting to know patients and helping each of them achieve a healthy smile are my daily goals.
When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kids; their activities keep us ever on the move!!
I am a graduate of Normandale Community College and have worked in the medical and dental field for 20 years.
I have been married for 39 years and have two children and six grandchildren. Outside of the office I volunteer, on a weekly basis, at Westwood Elementary school and love spending time with my family.
