I was born and raised in San Francisco. I come from a large family that has deep roots in San Francisco. My parents always emphasized family, faith, education, and helping others. I had wanted to become a dentist ever since I was in my teens, this was greatly influenced by my mother who was a nurse in San Francisco for 55 years.
I attended Saint Rose Academy High School, then headed down to Los Angeles for my undergraduate degree, where I graduated from Loyola Marymount University Magna Cum Laude, and received the Presidential Citation Award for Leadership and Service. I then returned to the Bay Area where I attended and graduated from UCSF Dental School with Honors in 1993, and in 1994 completed a Residency Program with the Veterans Administration Hospital in Martinez, California. Following my Residency, I began working as an associate dentist where I practiced general dentistry and gained invaluable experience in the practical aspects of running a private practice. In May of 1998 I bought a general dental practice in San Rafael, California after 7 years I expanded that practice and opened a second practice in Greenbrae, California.
Over the next 21 years, I owned and operated two general practices in Marin county. My husband and I have enjoyed raising our 4 children in Marin, and I have loved my work-life balance. I’m involved in multiple philanthropic organizations including Marin Head Start, Adopt a School and Little Sisters of the Poor programs. In 2019 I joined Dr. Hoey in his practice as he moved toward retirement. Like Dr. Hoey, I have always made it my goal to provide highly personalized care and to utilize the most advanced technology, materials, and procedures available in dentistry today. I use CEREC 3D design and printing to make same day crowns. I look forward to getting to know each of you as I provide your dental care.
In September of 2020 my youngest child left for college, and my husband and I decided the time was right to move full time to our home here in Napa. It is a joy to begin this newest chapter in our lives and my career living and working full time as a Napa Dentist.
