Working with each patient to improve their dental health is my number one goal. A healthy mouth leads to a healthier body, and I want my patients to have both. Taking time for personalized patient care helps accomplish this. A lot of my time is spent educating patients about oral health. I focus on their specific concerns and how the person can improve their home care, leading to a healthier, happier smile.
My husband’s name is Rich and we are blessed with two beautiful daughters Maggie and Kellie. We also have two shih tzu dogs named Leo and Vinnie. On my time off, I enjoy time with family and friends, traveling, and baking.

Developing a connection with our patients is important to me. They are an extension of my family and I care about each of them. I love spending my days helping people improve their oral and overall health and develop great smiles. I spend a lot of time with each patient discussing their dental health while instructing them on the best home hygiene processes and provide nutritional advice.
Outside of work, I enjoy nature and traveling. However, being with my family is my favorite way to spend my free time.

Everyone deserves a smile they love, and we make those smiles happen by providing individualized patient care. During a visit, I talk with my patient about their oral health and show why it’s important to keep their mouth clean and healthy and give them the tools and knowledge to do so.
I love spending time with my husband, Brad. I have two adult children, both married, and three grandchildren. I’m an animal lover and have a palomino horse, named Walter. In my spare time, I enjoy the outdoors, bike riding, hiking, swimming, and cross-country skiing.
Helping patients achieve their best smile is rewarding. Everyone has their own goals and needs and we’re attentive to those. Seeing a patient happy and smiling at the end of a visit because it was painless and went well makes me happy. It's important for the office to run smoothly and I contribute by updating information, scheduling appointments, and coordinating insurance benefits. With my years of experience as a dental assistant, I am knowledgeable about the procedures we do and can answer questions and help patients understand their care.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my husband Eric and son Riley. Reading, football, travel, hunting, and enjoying the great outdoors are several of my hobbies.
The opportunity to help patients develop great oral health and getting to know each one on a personal level is rewarding. We truly have the best patients and it is fun to learn about their interests and families. Developing great oral health and a wonderful smile makes me love my work. I assist Dr. Severin chairside during procedures. At the same time, I’m supporting our patient and helping to create a relaxed atmosphere. I also sterilize instruments, sanitize treatment rooms, and order supplies.
My life is shared with two wonderful kids, Mickenzie and Drew, as well as two cats and a dog. My family enjoys camping together, music, and movies. Accompanying Dr. Severin on mission trips to Jamaica is one of the highlights of my year.
