I have been in the oral surgery field for 10+ years. I started out in the sunny state of California obtaining my dental assisting diploma from Galen College. We later moved to Missouri (Go Tigers) and I worked as the Implant Coordinator Surgical Assistant. My passion has always been to help others. Dr. Luga and Dr. Awah have been so warm and welcoming and I feel blessed to be part of their team. on a personal note, I am married and have two athletic boys. In my spare time I’m busy “Cheerleading” on the field, turf and court. I also enjoy running, reading, helping our community, and gardening.
