Office Manager / Treatment Coordinator / Financial Coordinator / RDA

I have been in the dental field for many years. My mom was a dental assistant and office manager for a periodontal office, where I was allowed to work during the summers as I was growing up. I obtained my RDA License/CDA License in 1986 and served as an instructor for Dental Professionals of CA, preparing dental assistants for their state written and clinical exam.

I joined Dr. Workman’s office in 2015. She is an amazing woman and doctor. She is highly educated and up to date on new technology in every aspect of orthodontics. I continue to learn from her every day. She is a caring and loving person and truly believes in what she does and her staff. Our team is highly trained and willing to step up to help our patients and parents and each other. We are not just another dental office but a family with lasting relationships.

I have had the pleasure to meet and work for some very amazing people in California and Nevada, where I married and had a beautiful daughter. I have a dog and two cats. Family is a very important part of my life. I enjoy the outdoors, gardening, painting, and keeping busy. 




Scheduling Coordinator / Front Desk Receptionist

I joined the front desk of Dr. Workman’s office in 2017. From my position, I get to meet all of our patients and see how much joy their new smiles bring them once they have completed treatment. I also love coming to work to use my skills and talents, and in that way contribute to make our office run smoothly and productively. My team and I all share sincere love and caring for each other and our patients.

When I am not working, I spend most of my time with my husband, my two children, and our dog. I love cooking, reading, hiking, and traveling. I am also committed to serving at our local church in children and youth ministries.




Orthodontic RDA

I went to Brightwood College for the dental assisting program and got my diploma in 2015. While I was still in school, I started working as a sterilization tech part time to start learning prior to graduation. I learned a lot working there, from learning set-ups and taking impressions, to sterilization and how to clean and break down rooms. As I started to get to know more about the field, I realized that orthodontics was my passion! I love seeing patients in the beginning of treatment who are so unhappy with their teeth or smile, and being able to help them rebuild confidence toward the end of treatment. Seeing the patients get their braces off and seeing them smile for the first time with their new teeth is very rewarding. 

I like being outdoors, especially hiking and going to the beach. I could stay at the beach for hours! I am from Valley Center but I live in Escondido in an apartment with my sister and two dogs. I go to bible study Thursday nights after work and church Sunday mornings, and enjoy the gym in the evenings after work hours.




Orthodontic RDA

I graduated from Concorde Dental Assisting School in 1999. I have worked in both orthodontics and general and cosmetic dentistry, but find orthodontics to be the most rewarding. I enjoy getting to know patients on a personal level: witnessing their smile transformations as they progress through treatment. Dr. Workman is highly educated and uses the latest technology to improve people’s smiles. She is honest and ethical but also fun to work with. I feel like the whole team is a family.

My husband and my dog and I spend most weekends at the river in the summer. I’m even learning to surf behind my boat! In the winter, we are usually doing home improvement projects on the weekends. I have tons of family nearby and we spend a lot of time together.




Registered Dental Hygienist / Registered Dental Assistant

I became a registered dental assistant in 2012, and graduated from dental hygiene school to become a registered dental hygienist in 2017. Working with Dr. Workman has been the best experience I could have asked for. She is kind and compassionate, both with her patients and her team. I love watching her treat patients and seeing how her cases finish. Seeing patients so happy at the end of their treatment is the best part of my job!

I’ve been married to my husband Chuck for several years. We love to hike and to be outdoors!
