I have been blessed with a wonderful career as a Certified Dental Assistant for almost 15 years. I began working mostly in Victoria but now reside in the lovely Cowichan Valley and grateful to find this company to call my home. Shawnigan Lake has been my residence for over 5 years, I enjoy swiming in the lake or in one of the many rivers, skiing, hiking up cobble hill Mt or in the valley and of course gardening is my first love. It gives me great pleasure to support our many patients in this field as patient care is my top priority. I look forward to meeting many more patients and assisting them in a positive and caring environment.
