    What is your favorite food to eat?

    Thai foods, Hispanic, Asian, Italian, and anything soup/broth-based

    What do you love about Portland?

    There are so many things to do in Portland! From going to the movies, eating, and so much more! I love it all!

    What is something you’re passionate about outside of work?

    I love going hiking! Breathing the fresh air, challenging my body each step I take, and just being happy in nature. It really resets my mind to a more positive state!

    What attracted you to the dental industry?

    I love being able to help patients have a better smile!
    One time I had a patient who had a lot of treatment to be done and they had high anxiety. To see their smile be restored, it brought them to tears. Going from high anxiety to trusting the process was so awesome. Seeing that made me so happy because I knew that I had done my job as a dental assistant!

    Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

    I am Guatemalan and Spanish is my first language! Many people think I’m Asian, maybe somewhere down my family line there must have been a relative that was!  🙂 I also work a second job as a night shift grocery stocker on weekends! So I keep pretty busy!

    What is your favorite sports team?

    Oh gosh, I don’t really have one! I didn’t really grow up watching big sports teams. Here and there I watch a Blazer game, Bulls game, and Chicago Bears with my boyfriend, he’s really into the Portland and Chicago sports! 🙂 So I support him!
    The only memory I do have of something similar was watching WWE as a kid with my family! Watching Wrestlemania was like watching the Superbowl!

    What is your favorite band or artist?

    It’s so hard to name just a favorite band/ artist! I literally listen to everything from English, Spanish, Kpop, Marimba, and more!
