I most recently joined Dr Randall’s team in August of 2018. I had worked with Dr. Randall several years ago as a treatment assistant. After hygiene school I also helped out now and again as a substitute hygienist. I began my career in dentistry in 1998 as a treatment assistant. I graduated hygiene school in May 2014 from LCC and received my Bachelor’s degree in May 2018 in Dental Hygiene from U of M. I was a dental hygienist for one year in Lansing, in Ionia for three years, and now with Hastings Family Dental Care. I enjoy being a wife and mother of two children. I spend much of my free time watching my kids sporting events and I am active in several dental hygiene associations.
I have lived in Hastings all my life. I went to KCC For Dental Hygiene and graduated in 2010. I married my husband, Teddy in 2009 and we have two wonderful kids, Sophia and Ivan. I love working part time and spending as much time as I can with my family. We love to go camping; the food is the best part!! I love canning all kinds of food and enjoying them all year long.
I am originally From Bay City, MI. My dad retired from General Motors. My mom lives in Montana and my only sibling lives in Idaho. I graduated from Ferris State University with high honors. I have been a dental hygienist since the late 1980’s. I live on a small lake north of town with my husband. We love getting together with family and friends. We also enjoy traveling, scuba diving, and golf. I am very blessed to be working with Dr Randall and his team at Hastings Family Dental Care.
I graduated from Grand Rapids Community College’s Dental Hygiene program in 2005. Over my years of hygiene practice, I gained a passion for preventative health and whole body wellness in my own life and noticed how this approach could benefit my patients as well. This lead me to return to school to study nutrition and other natural health modalities. I became a licensed massage therapist in 2016. I love to incorporate all that I have studied into my hygiene practice and to consider each of my patient’s individual needs for education and treatment. I am a busy mom of 4 great kiddos. I love to spend time watching them play sports, gardening, camping as a family and practicing yoga.
For several years I had the blessing and privilege of being primarily a stay at home mom. I then returned to school for Dental Assisting. I believe it was God’s providence that brought me to the HFDC team. I’m grateful to serve with this united group for so many wonderful patients. In my personal time, I enjoy being with family and friends on all kinds of adventures. I also enjoy writing, running, camping, games, and creating artwork.
I have been working in the dental field For several years in both the business and clinical area. I love the variety of procedures that are offered to patients in General Dentistry and helping people receive excellent care. I currently have the pleasure of being a chairside dental assistant working with Dr. Randall and am getting to know all our great patients. I’ve been a member of the HFDC team since November 2021. My husband and I have called Hastings home since 2017. We have been blessed with 2 wonderful sons, whom we enjoy spending time with. I also enjoy reading, hiking, boating, fishing, and spending time with Family and Friends.
After graduating with a teaching degree in the 1980’s I worked in various places as an educator for ten years. That was followed by a number of years of being a stay-at-home mom. In 2002 my family and I moved to Michigan from California to be nearer family. Country living suited our family well. I always enjoyed taking walks and reading especially in a country setting. Soon we made friends while attending church. Dr. Randall became a new friend and asked if I might be interested in a receptionist position at his dental office. I gladly accepted the position in 2005. Dr. Randall and the team at Hastings Family Dental Care were and always have been exceptional professionals with kind hearts. It has been an absolute pleasure to be a part of the HFDC team and be able to help our wonderful patients maintain good oral health.
As a member of our dental care team, I am pleased to assist our wonderful patients and support our talented staff. Dr. Randall became my families dental provider in 2007 and I am fortunate to join his practice where I know firsthand that our patients are the focus of the practice. I’ve been with the practice since September 2022. Prior to entering the dental industry, my career focus has primarily been in the human Resource profession in both manufacturing and healthcare settings. I grew up in Barry county, and my husband and I have lived in the community with our two daughters for several years. I enjoy helping people and being part of the important work of dental health services. Happy Brushing!!
