I started working in the dental field as an assistant in 2007. My favorite part about my job is meeting and talking to our patients and helping to provide the best care for their dental needs. I'm married to my husband, Josh and we have a little boy, Micah. Besides those two blessings, I have a Jack Russell, Dixie. I have 2 younger sisters and 2 beautiful nieces who I love to see and spend time with. I always enjoy time with my family, hiking, camping and scrap-booking
My entry into the the field of dentistry began in 1998. I am grateful and appreciative for what I've learned and continue to learn. To me, it's more than just dentistry. It's getting the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and hopefully be a part of making their dental experience positive and uplifting. I am thankful to be part of Dr. Bickers dental team because he encourages me to grow and flourish by providing a wonderful work environment with state of the art equipment and training.
All this adds to a life that is abundantly filled with family, friends, gardening and most things outdoors!
