When did you start in the field of dentistry and why?
I was inspired by my childhood dentist who was a gentle and kind giant.  He would treat us with chewing gum after our hygiene appointments and gum was a special treat in my house.  Going to the dentist was always exciting to us.

What’s the best advise you’ve ever received?
You won’t be given anything you can’t handle in life!

If you played hooky, what would you do?
I would go biking, swimming, or do yoga!

On a scale of 1 to 10, how cool are you?
I’m a 10 because I drive a mom wagon and wear a nerdy light on my head when I see patients! 

What do you do to shush people who are snoring?
I kick them.

What do you hate most about getting ready in the morning?
Getting out of my cozy bed.

What’s your most embarrassing moment?
Leaving the washroom with my skirt tucked into my underwear.

What’s the strangest food you’ve ever eaten?
Crickets as a topping on soup in Mexico.  It was crunchy and spicy!

If you could make one activity illegal, what would it be and why?
Not brushing and flossing because that’s just nasty!
