Welcome to Dakota Pediatric Dentistry! I am the business manager of both our Fargo and Grand Forks locations. I graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead with a degree in communication studies. I knew I wanted a career where I could work and communicate effectively with people. What I enjoy most about working here is getting to know our patients and their families personally, and watching the children grow. In my personal time, I enjoy spending time with my husband Matt, our three children Preston, Summer, and Harper, and our two English Bulldogs Heff and Violet.
Hi! I am the Fargo office manager for Dr. Chad and Dr. Mikala. I am one of the smiling faces you will see when you first come into our office. I was born and raised in Fargo, ND and graduated from M State Moorhead with an associate's degree in practical nursing. After working as a nurse for 5 years, I decided to make a career change to the pediatric dentistry field. I thoroughly love working with kids and I enjoy making their visits to our practice a positive and rewarding experience. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband Devin and our young son Henley, going to the lakes, and cheering on the Seattle Seahawks!
