REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
I’m one of our registered dental hygienists. I am originally from Lansing and moved to Ludington in 2000 after graduating from dental hygiene school. I was a dental assistant for 12 years prior to becoming a hygienist. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my two sons and watching old movies. I have three cats at home who constantly remind me that they are the “bosses”! I have an avid interest in holistic health, nutrition and fitness. I really love the summers in Ludington, hiking, walking and spending time at the beach. Ludington summers can’t be beat!
REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
I am a registered dental hygienist at our office. I graduated from Ferris State University with my dental hygiene degree in 1992. I enjoy spending time with my two daughters Lauren, a senior in high school, and Emily, a sophomore. I also enjoy gardening, shopping, going for walks and boating, fishing and tubing with my family.
I grew up in Mason County and currently live in Newaygo County on a whitetail deer ranch with my husband, Scott. We have been blessed with two sweet daughters, Kayla and Shelbi. In addition to spending time with my family and friends and being active in my church, I enjoy being outdoors, camping, hunting, gardening, and quilting. I have worked for Dr. Ruby at the front desk since 2014. I really enjoy being part of such a caring team of professionals. From the day I started, I could sense that our staff genuinely cares for our patients. I love working with people and it is my goal to provide you with exceptional service and a friendly smile during your visit.
