We have a shared vision about how the big picture should look. A heart-felt desire to serve, to bring health and wellness to others, and to enjoy ourselves in the process.
A willingness to step in and fill in where needed, as well as a drive to grow professionally in our own area of expertise. We hope this is exactly what you’ll find in our supporting staff.

I started my career as a dental assistant prior to earning my Dental Hygiene Degree in 1996, from Hudson Valley Community College. I have lived in Vermont since 1990, with my husband and two children. I started practicing with Dr. Ruhl in 1996. I enjoy spending my free time traveling with my family.

After graduating from Keene High School, I went on to New Hampshire Technology Institute to pursue a career in Dental Hygiene where I met my husband Seth. After graduating in 1994, I moved to Whitingham and began practicing with Dr. Louis A. Beaudette. I have two children, Skyler and Sadie, and spend most of my free time watching them at sporting or school events. I have had the pleasure of caring for my community of the Deerfield Valley since 1996 and I look forward to continuing to do so for many more.

I began my path in dental health as a freshman in high school working at my local dental office in Athol, Massachusetts. In 2005, I graduated from Forsyth Dental Hygiene Institute in Boston, MA. I practiced as a hygienist in Massachusetts for several years and in 2012 moved to Vermont. I practiced in a dental office in Costa Rica and have volunteered with a dental health program in Peru. When I’m not working as a hygienist, I enjoy spending time with my son, Kai, teaching and practicing yoga, traveling, skiing and being with my family. I am thrilled to be a full-time hygienist with Deerfield Valley Dental Care and serve the wonderful people of the valley!
