As one of nine children, our dental assistant Rebecca has spent most of her life caring for others. This nurturing upbringing led her to a customer service career in banking. Recognizing the need for more personal "people contact," Rebecca came to dentistry. We were very fortunate to have her join our team in September 2007.
Rebecca's experience as a dental assistant (since June 2004) has prepared her to meet the needs of our patients. Rebecca enjoys training for and running marathons, sewing, baking custom cakes, spending time with her husband, family and traveling. Rebecca is an enthusiastic professional who looks forward to assisting you with your dental needs.

Jackie is very involved with her children, volunteering at their schools on various committees and in scouting. Jackie and her family participate in Civil War Reenactments and the Honor Flight program for World War II Veterans. When she is not cheering her children on in their various sports, you can find her enjoying outdoor activities like hiking, camping, sledding and swimming.
