Meet Our Staff
I was born in Fontana, CA and moved to TN when I was 12. I went to High School in Fayetteville, AR but moved back to TN for a while. Several years ago I moved back to NWA to marry my high school sweetheart. Between my husband and myself, we have 6 children, 2 daughter-in-laws and 2 grand babies with a new one on the way! We live on a small farm in Huntsville that we share with several dogs and chickens. Traveling, visiting with family & friends as well as cooking and canning are my favorite things to do. I love being able to assist patients with their treatment needs, and help them better understand treatment needed while utilizing their insurance benefits efficiently.
I was raised in Fort Smith, AR but moved up to NWA to pursue a Bachelors of Science Degree in Biology at the U of A. I fell in love with the culture and spirit of NWA and once I graduated, I decided to stay here. I enjoy reading books, traveling, DIY, cooking, baking and spending time with my spoiled Corgi, Jackson Bear. Over the past few years, I have learned a tremendous amount about insurance and financing. I’m fortunate to use those skills to educate and advise our patients in regards to their insurance and financial concerns. It is my goal to make confident, beautiful and healthy smiles attainable for every patient!

Director of Patient Relations/Registered Dental Assistant
I was raised in Broken Arrow Oklahoma, where I graduated high-school early in 2013. Right after high-school I then started my journey to NWA to attend Petra Allied Health Dental Assisting Program. I then graduated Petra on September 11th, 2014 and then married my husband on September 27th! We then had our sweet baby girl Harper in January of 2016. I enjoy being outside and spending time with my family and friends. The best thing about working in this line of business is engaging with our patients. Here at Founders Park we take the time to learn about our patients and personalize there experience to meet their every need. One thing I love about working here is how much our patients engage with us, we love our patients and take the time to truly care for them.

Registered Dental Hygienist
I am originally from Greenwood, AR. I have lived in Fayetteville for the last 4 years, I absolutely love NWA. In 2012, I graduated from the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith with a dental hygiene degree and was a member of Delta Gamma Sorority. My fur children keep me entertained at home; my black lab, Mowgli and my cat, Bentley. When I’m not working on patients, I enjoy going to the gym, walking the trails, and going to the lakes and rivers on the weekends. I spend time with family and friends and travel every chance I get. My favorite part of my job is building valuable relationships with my patients and improving their overall oral health.
