I love seeing the kids come in so excited to be here. It is very rewarding to meet and work with new families every day. In my spare time, I love spending time with my husband and our 4 teenage kids. We are an "on-the-go" family! My hobbies include camping, traveling, cooking and crafting. One thing that people might not know about me is that there are 159 immediate family members on my mom’s side! We do so much together throughout the year and the holiday gatherings are so much fun. We are a close knit family and many of my cousins are like siblings to me. We had the first ever family photo taken this summer. We were grouped by families with all of the little ones in the front. Our photographer had to stand on a very tall ladder to get us all in the photo. It was a bit chaotic, but the picture is amazing!

I love watching how excited the kids are to come to the dentist. My husband and I have 3 boys. I enjoy watching my boys play sports, spending time with family and friends, gardening, running, camping and making crafts. If I could travel to anywhere in the world, it would be Australia. My parents went there on their honeymoon and talked about how gorgeous it is. I know their pictures don’t do it justice. From the Great Barrier Reef to the outback, I think it would be awesome!

I love working with all of the different age groups that we see, from the little ones who are really shy, to the older ones getting ready to head to college. I am a busy mom of 2 sporty boys. My husband and I are always running to games, practices or meetings. I am also the Cub Master for Pack 57. In my free time, I like to garden, play with the boys and our dog. I also like to go fishing, camping and just being outside. I would love to go to Ireland someday. My grandma came to the United States from Ireland as a little girl, so it would be fun to see where she came from. It looks so beautiful there!

I love talking to the kids and watching how excited they are to come to their dental appointment. I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we have a son and daughter. I enjoy traveling, crafting, camping and watching my kids play hockey. I would like to travel back to Norway. I’ve been there twice and hope to have another trip in the near future. I have more relatives in Norway than I do in America. One of my cousins in Norway is a dear friend and we text nearly every day.

I love working with kids each day. I am married with two adult children and a daughter-in-law. My hobbies include working on my house and spending time with my family and pets. I am most proud of my children (now adults) and all that they have accomplished.

I love meeting the fun patients each day and working for two great doctors. You just never know what is going to come out of a child's mouth! I enjoy camping with my 3 children and going to our family cabin in Canada. We all love animals and have a mini petting zoo at our house. When I have time, I love to read. The one thing that I am most proud of is my kids. Sometimes I look at them and I am amazed that I made something so beautiful and special. Someday I would love to go on a dental mission trip to help those in need of dental care.

The children are the best part of working in a pediatric dental office. They always brighten my day! In my free time, I especially enjoy spending time with my family and friends; and during the summer, I love boating. I also like to travel and learn new things! In high school, I spent 3 weeks traveling throughout Europe. Iceland is at the top of my buck list of beautiful places to visit-seeing the Blue Lagoon would be amazing.

The best part about working at DFCA aside from working with kids is the fact that I get to work with such an amazing group of ladies. Nothing makes or breaks a job more than the people you work with every day and I am so bless to be a part of such a wonderful team.

I am recently engaged! I love the color pink and anything that sparkles. I am a huge cat lover and I have 3 lovely cats. My family means the world to me and I love spending quality time with my parents and my sister. I love shopping! chances are, you will find me at Target or TJ Max. My Fiance and I enjoy being outdoors and going for walks. We love spending time with friends also.

The DIsney character I am most like would be Belle from Beauty and the Beast. We can both be shy at times but will always stand for what we believe in. We are both gentle, compassionate and have quite the imagination!

I really enjoy being around children everyday and the team and doctors are amazing and so fun to work with.

My family includes my wonderful parents and I have four brothers. I have one dog, a pug named Bubba.

I enjoy being with my family and friends. in the summer, I love camping with my family.

If I could travel anywhere, I think France would be really great to visit. Everything there looks so beautiful. Someday I am hoping to get there.

I absolutely love children! coming to work at DFCA gives me the chance to make a difference in all of our patients lives by creating a wonderful dental experience for them. this fills my heart along with working for great doctors and team members every day.

My husband and I have six children together. Being that our family is blended, we have earned the nickname "The Brady Brunch". Although we are missing the housekeeper, Alice. We have 2 dogs, 1 bird, 1 leopard gecko, and 3 fish.

I love boating, Kayaking, biking, camping, and travel up north with friends and family. Some of my other hobbies include flower gardening, crafting, and cooking with my husband and trying new recipes.

I would really like to travel to Norway and Germany to see where my ancestors came from.

I love working with kids of all ages and working with such a positive team. I am a recent graduate from Minnesota State University Mankato. I live in a small community with my family and 1 dog. In my spare time, I love to cook, go shopping and hang out with my friends. In high school I was given the opportunity to travel around Europe for a few weeks and Switzerland was my favorite county to visit. I hope to travel there again someday.
