Meet the Team
In high school, I had the opportunity to do my work experience course at a local dental clinic. While working there, I primarily shadowed the CDA, and ever since then, I’ve been interested in the profession. I was especially drawn to the variety of responsibilities the CDAs take on daily.
For me getting to know the patients and helping them with whatever their issues may be would have to be my favourite part. Seeing someone leave happier than when they came in is great.
As someone born and raised in the Okanagan, I have a soft spot for the sunshine and views that we have. You can typically find me hiking and adventuring with family or friends.
