I became a Registered Dental Hygienist after graduating from William Rainey Harper College in 2016. I completed my Bachelor in Liberal Arts at University of Iowa in Communication Sciences and Disorders with a minor in Psychology. The field of dentistry runs in my family with my mom being a Registered Dental Hygienist and my grandmother a Dental Assistant. With the ever evolving world of dentistry, I strive to learn about new technology and current research to provide the best information and care to you for a healthy beautiful smile. I love to say "You're never fully dressed without a smile!" When I'm not in the office, I love spending time along the lake shore trail, exploring hidden gems in the city, exercising, and watching sports.
I graduated from Northwestern University Dental Hygiene School with honors in 1980. I finished my degree in Economics at Northwestern in 1989. I planned to pursue a corporate career, but I love clinical dental hygiene! Dental Hygienists are a unique part of the dental team because our focus is on prevention. Being able to help patients keep healthy smiles is important to me.
I am an avid scuba diver. My husband Bill and I walk to keep fit. We have two Norwegian Forest Cats, Hazel and Millie.
I became a dental hygienist in 2007 after graduating from Illinois Central College in Peoria,IL. I joined Dr. Beaty’s team shortly after graduating and have been fortunate to be part of such a dynamic team over the past 15 years. As a hygienist I strive to make patient comfort a top priority. I’m very passionate about educating patients so that they can the healthiest mouth (and body) possible. When I am not practicing dental hygiene I love traveling, spending time outdoors, exercising and cooking. My husband and I have 2 children age 4 and age 2 and we reside in suburban Plainfield.

I have happily held the title of dental assistant since 2014 and had the pleasure of working as Dr. Beaty's assistant since 2018. I am currently working on my BA in Chemistry with a minor in Business Administration at University of Illinois at Chicago in hopes of becoming a dentist in the near future! I have so much fun in the clinic, not only using my technical skills to help Dr. Beaty build healthy and beautiful smiles but also caring for and interacting with our awesome patients. Outside of the office, I have three boys at home: two cool cats named Onyx and Lazo and my partner, Saul. You will probably find us exploring a new restaurant or going on walks and enjoying the fantastical city views.
