I was born and raised in San Francisco, a true San Franciscan. I have three children and two wonderful grandchildren. I am very fortunate to work in a field that I love, dentistry. I not only enjoy interacting with all the wonderful patients and co-workers, but I sincerely enjoy helping people. I guess you could call me a people person. In my off time, I love playing the piano, doing arts and crafts, kicking up my heels with country line dancing and also reading or listening to audio books. I love animals, especially cats.
