Registered Dental Hygienist
As one of the team of hygienists, I help keep our family of patients’ teeth sparkling clean. I like working for Stefano Dental because it gives me a change of pace and a stream of new faces, and keeps me on my toes. I LOVE dentistry for the diversity of people, which means a diversity in teeth: not one mouth is the same. I love challenges, and when patients return for preventive maintenance, their teeth are in better health from what I have done.
I am happily married to my husband Corey since 2007, and we have two beautiful children. I like to garden, run, work out, and be outdoors.

I have been married to my husband, Mark for 27 years. We have three children and three grandchildren. We love to travel and spoil our grandchildren.
I began as a dental assistant in 1988 in Alliance, Ohio. I studied at Stark State, where I attended every course and took every opportunity to learn the finer aspects of dentistry that have been available. My first Doctor and I went on a ten-day mission trip to the Dominican Republic, where we attended to the dental needs of many. My life has had many chapters. After 13 years in the same practice, I have lived and worked in Canton and Massillon, with some of the best doctors.
I became a part of Stefano Dental in March of 2014. I feel honored to be a part of their team. The atmosphere of learning, as well as genuine care for your health and comfort, are of the standards that I longed to be apart of. Our patients are very important to me, and I take great pride in providing excellent, comfortable care.
My husband and I, our two Yorkies, live south of Norwalk. We enjoy country life – bicycling, some gardening, and many creative hobbies keep me busy.
