As the newest member I recently joined our team here at Cowichan valley dental after graduating this year of June 2015. I previously completed the dental assisting program but decided to take my career a step farther and pursue dental hygiene. My ultimate goal is to complete my Masters and become a dental hygiene instructor. What I enjoy most about being part of the Cowichan valley Dental team is the positive interaction with all our patients, and the strong team of dental professionals we have to offer. Outside of work, I enjoy renovation our never ending project of a house, traveling, hiking and spending time with my friends and family including my daughter Grace, my Fiancé Jon, and my Bulldog Khloe.
