The Dental career has always been a huge part of my life. Being the daughter of a Dental Student, then Dentist, my time spent with dad was maybe a little different than most kids. Countless hours were spent “helping” him study; AKA honing my coloring skills while he read about Dental Anatomy and ran through flash cards. I also quickly became a class favorite, as I sat in the back row during lectures, playing with my Barbies. Then once he had graduated with his degree and our family moved back to our hometown of Rigby, being at the office became an afterschool staple.
I have been helping in the front office of West Wind Dental and Dental Assisting since I can remember. I graduated from Rigby High School in 2011, and then continued on to college. I spent some time at both ISU and BYUI before deciding to pursue Dental Hygiene. I entered into the Carrington College Dental Hygiene program, in Boise, shortly after. During my time there, I married my high school sweetheart. I graduated in 2014 and we moved back to Rigby, where I came back to work under my dad as his Dental Hygienist.
Being back in Rigby has been amazing, my husband and I plan to eventually raise a family here. Until then though, we are happy fur-parents and have no immediate plans to change that. We enjoy spending our time together and when not working, you will often find us curled up on the couch together watching Friends reruns.
It has been so great being able to work with my family, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
