I have been an RDA since 2009 and had the privilege of working at offices that allowed me to learn many different ways of assisting. I enjoy the dental field because of the constantly changing scene and fast pace environment. With so many facets, there is always something new to be learned! Dr. Chen’s office has really given me an enjoyable challenge and I am so grateful to work with the patients I’ve met here. I feel as though each and every day is an opportunity to do better than the one before and there is always room to improve no matter how much experience one has. I enjoy outdoor activities like snorkeling and climbing and always enjoy time out with friends. My most cherished time though is with my family and two dogs as well as doing regular volunteer work throughout the week.
