Courtney 

DENTAL HYGIENIST

Hello! I am Courtney, and I knew I wanted to be a Dental Hygienist since I was seventeen years-old. While in High School, I joined dental club and had the privilege to see first hand the good it does for communities. I love hygiene, but have many other hobbies that make me who I am. Cooking is something that I adore and helps me find solace, this is where I can challenge my palate and make food that isn't half bad. I am a cat mom of two; Agnes and Mister. I am married to a wonderful man, RJ, who is an English teacher in Albany at Memorial Middle School. We both enjoy to travel, hike, camp, and read in our free time. We also go to weekly dance classes together and enjoy dancing West Coast Swing. We have recently started learning Ballroom Foxtrot. When we aren't busy with our hobbies, we can be found working on our fixer upper home and loving every second of our time together. Expect to see me laughing and having a great time in the chair and bringing my passion for life into my work.
