In November of 2010, I joined the Smiles In Motion team as a Pediatric Dental Assistant. I believe that working with children is one of the most rewarding jobs anyone could have. It is very apparent that Dr. Spitz, Dr. Winn, Dr. Goettl and all the team here share the same values and we truly enjoy working with the kids. Making them feel comfortable is very important to me and in return, they always seem to put a smile on my face. In my spare time, I love to go camping, take dance classes and spend time with my family, friends and dog, Layla.
