I am a first generation Jamaican, born in Chicago and raised in Schaumburg. I didn’t grow up knowing the importance of going to the dentist. However, when I learned about the impact of dental health, I wanted to tell everyone! This was my main motivation but I also credit my Grandfather. I loved spending time with him and one of our special moments was when we would brush our teeth together, so this also spurred me on to become a hygienist.
I love helping people in any way I can. Being able to get to know people and help them improve their health is truly the best part of my job. I strive to be genuine, caring, and friendly with all my patients, which has led to the formation of long-lasting relationships.
I studied Dental Hygiene at Harper College and graduated from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville with a Bachelors in Biological Science/Medical Science and a Minor in Chemistry. I enjoy working at both our Carol Stream and Elgin offices.
Out of the office:
I am a very active person. I’m currently learning to swim and enjoy dancing, playing sports, and board games. I love to spend time with my family and go to the movies.
My mother. As a single parent, she raised me and my younger brother. She worked very hard to make sure we both graduated from college and became successful.
