Official Start Date:

What Has Been Your Key to Success?
Mentorship from successful people has played a key role to my success. Reflection and practice has shaped my thinking and motivation. Dexter Yager, told me he was in the “people” business. He made his success by helping other people succeed. Robert Rohm taught the 4 DISC personality types and how to apply the style of communication so your transmission is received. Jim Guldberg says, you need to have a dream, a why, a direction, a target! You will become a “wandering generality” if you don’t have direction. And my newest mentor, Simon Sinek, find your WHY.
What Do You Consider Your Greatest Career Accomplishment?
In one of my past jobs, I was able to save the company more money than my annual gross income by leveraging a vendor rebate program. Whenever you can add profit by saving time or money, it all contributes to the bottom line which effects the entire organization.
If You Could Provide Advice to a DENTCO Teammate, What Would It Be?
Look for the positive attributes your team possesses. Delight in their differences and accomplishments. If they appear down, pick them up.
What Do You Enjoy Doing Outside of Work?
I like to hang out with my family and friends, cook dishes inspired by Giada De Laurentis and Ina Garten, sing in the church choir and go shopping.
What Do You Enjoy Most About Being a DENTCO Teammate?
I like to help where I’m needed. In the Technology Support role, I really enjoy helping the contractors come up to speed for their DENTCO Verified App and Portal tools.
What is Your Favorite Memory as a DENTCO Teammate?
I really like the teambuilding exercises we have monthly. The best one yet was the lip-sync exercise.
