Heather grew up in Portage, MI and graduated from Kalamazoo Valley Community College. Though she’s been a dental assistant since 2012, she didn’t start off in dentistry. In fact, she found her way to the dental field in a round about way. While working at a restaurant, a practice manager from an oral surgical clinic noticed her work ethic and offered her a job. While working there, Heather realized how much she loved the dental field.
One of the things she loves about her job is the systems and protocol in place. The structure is really satisfiying.
Together with her husband, Zac, she has a son (Grayson), two dogs, and one cat. When she’s not working, Heather loves any outdoor activity, though some of her favorites are swiming, kayaking, and gardening. When indoors, she can be found baking or reading.
