Prior to my employment here, I worked as an oral surgery assistant and a certified ophthalmic tech, for a combined 30 years.
I was born and raised here in good ol’ Coeur d’Alene Idaho. I’ve raised two fantastic sons and I’m the proud owner of a Cairn Terrier named Cooper, (a.k.a; Coo-Coo Bear, Coozie or “bad -dog”). In my spare time, you can find me walking the dog, hopping on my bike for a ride-along the lake or headed to the nearest hiking trail. During the cooler months, I enjoy spending time with friends and family or cozying up with a good book.
