Office Manager

My job entails assisting Dr. Vanourny and Dr. Baker with all aspects pertaining to clinical procedures and to ensure all patients are made as comfortable as possible. I began as an assistant in 2008 and I have been working with Dr. Vanourny since 2012. I grew up around dentistry with my father owning a dental laboratory and my mother working in both dental offices and labs.

My favorite part of my job is being able to make patients comfortable. It is very enjoyable being able to see patient’s through their total treatment and seeing their happiness with our care. I love the fact that every day I come to work and feel I am working with great, loyal and passionate people that are truly concerned for our patient’s health and satisfaction.

In the fall of 2015 I was married, we enjoy spending time with our kids, hiking with our dog, going to the White Water Center and attending sporting events with family and friends.

Dental Hygienist

After an 8 year career as a Food Scientist, I returned to school to become a Dental Hygienist.  I graduated from York Tech in 2017 and have been practicing the profession ever since.  I have a passion for marrying my experience as a Food Scientist/Nutritionist with oral hygiene and educating patients on the importance of good oral health care. 

My favorite part of working as a dental hygienist at Catawba Valley Dental Care is the ability to get to know my patients personally.  Getting to know each patient allows me to provide top-notch dental care and alleviate fears, talk about smile goals, or to encourage proper oral hygiene.  It's rewarding to  have a patient walk out of the office having had a wonderful experience.

Outside of work I have three beautiful children, Cameron, Riley and Matthew, and a wonderful husband, Joe.  I enjoy spending my time gardening, cheering my kids on the soccer field or traveling.
