I am responsible for managing all aspects of the office and patient coordination in order to make sure each day runs as smoothly as possible. I really like working with Dr. Pugeda; it’s a great feeling to help patients get the dental work they need. I moved to Columbia in 2001, after my husband, Clay, and I got married. We have four beautiful children: Kaitlyn, Jackson, Jameson and Harrison. When I am not working I try to spend as much time with my kids as possible. I love watching them play soccer!
After graduating from Columbia High School, I started the dental hygiene program at St. Louis Community College. Quickly after graduating, I was lucky enough to become the first hygienist at such a close-to-home and high-tech office. During my four years working here, it has been very exciting watching our practice triple in size. I enjoy improving the health of my patients and giving them a smile they can appreciate for life. I am happily married to my wonderful husband, Matt. Together we have two wonderful kids: Mason and Maisy.
