Pay It ForwardI love the saying "Pay It Forward". I decided to take on this credo and apply it to my life the first time I saw this movie. I hope to be a mentor to the next generation of healthcare professionals by always conducting myself with the upmost and highest degree of integrity and ethics. I treat every patient as if they were my own family member when they are in my chair. I am a lifetime learner and dedicate myself to staying current with healthcare trends to best assist the public. My years of participation in the American Dental Hygienists' Association have helped shape my life in so many ways and taught me many of the values I hold so dear.
