Office & Human Resources Manager


I have been working at Persona Dental for over 16 years as the office and HR manager. What I enjoy the most with my job is the family-friendly atmosphere we have created. Each team member is truly a part of our extended family! It has been fun to watch Persona Dental grow from four to 12 employees, and with that, adding employee benefits to meet the ever-evolving needs of our practice.

When I am not at the office, you will find me across the street at the gym, conversing with friends at book clubs, at Coborn’s getting the usual staples to satisfy hungry teenagers we proudly call our children, or out on a date with my hubby, Troy.

Registered Dental Hygienist


I graduated from Foley High School, and then completed my AS and BS degrees at Minnesota State University. My husband Travis and I have two children, Whitney and Wyatt, and a dog named Kiera. We reside in Foley. In my free time I enjoy being active running, playing with my kids, and scrapbooking.

Licensed and Certified Dental Assistant


I was born and raised in St. Cloud and attended St. Cloud Technical & Community College where I received my dental assisting degree. I've been a licensed and certified assistant at Persona Dental since September 2007. I chose to be an assistant because I love the variety. I find it very rewarding to help improve our patients’ oral health and smiles. I take pride in what I do! I have two young boys, Hunter and Weston. They keep me very busy when I am not at work, and I wouldn't have it any other way! Some hobbies and interests of mine include being outdoors, gardening, hunting, archery, running, antiquing, decorating and spending time with the very special people in my life.

I am married to Hal and we have lived in Zimmerman since 1995. We have been married for 25+ years and have two grown children, Ashton and Blake.

I have been working in the dental field since graduating in 1988 as a Licensed Dental Assistant.
