I started in dentistry in 1999 as a business assistant. From there I went on to study dental hygiene at Lake Land College in Mattoon, Illinois. I joined Dr. Loughran’s team in 2003. I have enjoyed making some very strong relationships with the community. Helping people enjoy their teeth forever is my passion. My greatest accomplishment in life is my faith and family. David and I have two children, Summer and Justice. We also have two dogs and nine chickens. Life is good!
