I have been working in dental technology for over fifteen years with a certification in ceramics. I am taking the steps necessary for The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Accreditation. This is one of the most highly recognized advanced credentialing programs and I have passed the written exam portion. I currently work for Dental Services Group in Clearwater, Florida and have been with the company for over ten years where I manage both the standard and high end esthetic ceramic departments. I have furthered my education by attending some of the most highly accredited training courses in the United States such as The Dawson Academy and The Las Vegas Institute. My key focuses are lean implementation and developing training protocols within DSG. Volunteering is also a key part of my life. I am Vice President of the South Eastern Conference of Dental laboratories and on DSG's health care committee. I strongly believe in giving back to my profession for all that it has given me.
