A number of experiences pointed me towards dental hygiene. I loved having braces and always noticed teeth. I enjoy meticulous work and working with people was a must! I have worked periodically for Dr Batterton since 2002. In 2014, I started working here weekly and keep adding more hours.

Born in Staten Island, New York and moved to Ohio in 1981, I finished growing up in Westerville. I graduated from The Ohio State University in 1994 with a bachelor’s in Dental Hygiene. This past year, I took a course on giving anesthetic and passed my exam in May. I am now licensed to give injections in the dental office.

My hobbies are quilting, stamping, and anything crafty. Cooking and reading are also a favorite. I have 2 daughters, Natalie and Morgan who both participate in 4-H with pygmy goats. I am forever learning more about this animal and how to keep them from getting out. We also have chickens, rabbits, and cats. No dog, yet!
