As a adjunct faculty member teaching in both community college and private college settings, my experiences enable me to work in a diverse community setting. My educational experience includes the education and supervision of students in all facets of clinical studies. My didactic teaching experiences include Oral Tissues I and Oral Pathology, as well as lectures/presentations on Medical Emergencies in the dental office, Tal-Eval Grading System and Dentrix Dental Charting. As External Clinic Coordinator my responsibilities included scheduling students in both internal and external clinic sites, management of student immunizations and site paperwork, and calibration of external clinic faculty.

Over the past several years I have been incorporating technology as part of my teaching philosophy for better communication, to design more effective assessments, and have more resources available to students. In addition to my teaching responsibilities I have been a practicing dental hygienist for 5+ years and have wide-ranging experience in many facets of dental hygiene. Working in multi-specialty practices offering a full range of dental services give me an extensive knowledge and real-world experiences which allows me to reinforce student clinical/didactic learning. My accomplishments have given me the expertise to successfully integrate knowledge, skills, and techniques from my academic and private practice experience to greatly benefit and enhance my students’ dental hygiene academic career.
