Front Office Administrator and Treatment Coordinator
I was born and raised here in Colorado. I graduated from Northglenn High School in 2010. I have been working in the dental field for 8 years and enjoy it very much. My favorite part about my job is being able to meet so many different people and welcome them kindly as soon as they walk through the door to make sure they get a good first impression. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, being outside as much as possible, and trying new restaurants around the city.
I am a Colorado girl through and through! I grew up in Greenwood Village, Colorado, and attended Cherry Creek High School. In 2013 I graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder with a degree in Film and a passion for connecting with people. My husband, Tanner, and I moved back to Denver shortly after graduation where I started my career in dentistry as a Treatment Coordinator at a general dentist in Highlands Ranch. There, I was able to foster long-lasting relationships with our regular patients and their families. In 2020, I was thrilled to transition from general dentistry to Dr. Esposito’s surgical team here at Implant and Oral Surgery Center. In my free time you can find me at a local brewery sampling the latest craft beer release or catching a screening at the movie theater!
