I am a Registered Dental Hygienist who is passionate about helping children have good positive dental experiences and healthy smiles. I love working with children and enjoy forming relationships with my patients based on trust, kindness, and compassion. I have been working with Dr. Parker for 18 years. My goal is to empower my patients to take great pride in their smiles and oral health.
I obtained my Bachelors of Science degree in General Studies at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. I received my Associates degree in Dental Hygiene from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in New Orleans.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband Frank, and our daughter Sophia. I enjoy decorating, shopping, gardening, and working out.
A desire to work with children is what attracted me to Dr. Parker’s office.
I love kids and have always known that pediatrics is where I truly belong. I enjoy building trusting relationships with my patients to create a fun and exciting experience. It makes my day when a child is excited to come back to the dentist. I received my EDDA certification at the LSU School of Dentistry in 2007.
I have 21 years of experience as a dental assistant, 15 of which have been with Dr. Parker. I enjoy working with him and have promised to work beside him until his retirement. I love my job and am truly blessed to work with such an amazing team.
When I’m not busy being Dr. Parker’s trusty sidekick, I am a certified First Responder and enjoy giving back to my community.
I also enjoy hanging out with my husband Joseph, son Dylan, and fur babies.
I received my dental assisting certification from the Louisiana Dental Assisting School in 2012 and then decided to further my knowledge at LSU, receiving my EDDA certification.
I enjoy working in pediatrics and have been an employee of Dr. Parker since 2013.
Working with children has been an enjoyable experience and each child leaves a different impression on my life.
Outside of the office I spend most of my free time working out, trying new restaurants and simply having fun with my husband, daughter and friends.
I have been with Dr. Parker for 8 years and have over 35 years of dental experience in all!
I am always willing to help out our patients and their parents when it comes time for continuing their dental needs!
When I am not working, my husband and I enjoy fishing and different activities introducing children to fishing through the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA).
I have had the pleasure of being part of Dr. Parker’s team since 2012!
I enjoy working with children and I’m passionate about being a patient advocate. Calming fears, answering questions, and helping to make treatment possible for children is something I find rewarding in the position I am in.
Another passion of mine is my family! I cannot spend enough time with my husband, daughter and son. Whether traveling or playing around the house they make my heart smile!
