I've been in Indiana my entire Dental career. I married the love of my life Aaron Claire who is a Florida man. In this season of our life our family wants to relocate to Florida. I'm open to the location in Florida but would love to be on a coast near water. I love my profession and field of work! I love learning, teaching and taking current classes. I love my current lab family I will be sad to leave them. I'm looking for a new lab family. I'm ready to build on my career and find my new niche in Florida! I'm fully vaccinated if that's important to you. I know I can be an asset to your operation!
