Meet our Team
With a total of 23 years experience (17 years in Dental hygiene), my passion for Dentistry stems from a desire to assist others in the improvement of their overall health in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
My favorite pastime is spending time with family and friends. Off-roading in the mountains or the desert is one of our favorite things to do as a family!
I graduated and was certified as a chair-side assistant from Pima Medical Institute in 2013; and I have been Dr. McDonald’s dental assistant since 2014, providing people with a healthy and beautiful smile.
I do my very best to make sure my patients are comfortable and enjoy their time spent at our practice, and am proud of the way our team is able to meet the needs of each single patient. My favorite part of my job is the variety of procedures we do – because every procedure is different for every patient, and it keeps my job interesting. I love working with Doctor McDonald, because she is very knowledgeable and very caring with her patients.
When I’m not at work I like to spend time with my family and friends, and I love to watch movies. My favorite quote is: “A better life starts with a beautiful smile.”
I started as a Dental Assistant and have worked in the field of dentistry since 2010. With my experience assisting the doctor and 14 years of experience in office management, it was a natural progression for me to become the office manager when the vacancy arose. My goal is to meet, exceed and delight every patient, every visit!
I enjoy spending time outdoors camping with my family. I am a leader for a local 4H club and a member of the Yuma Rotary.
I have been in the Dental field for 9 years – 3 years as a Dental Assistant and 6 years as a Dental Coordinator. I enjoy helping patients experience the highest level of dental care in the most comfortable atmosphere possible. I take joy in spending time with my family, reading, watching movies and some outdoor activities.
I began my career in Dental Assisting in the beginning of 2017 at the American Institute of Dental Assisting and graduated 5 months later in May. I started at Harvest Dental right away and I’m loving it! I love assisting Dr. McDonald because she cares a lot about her patients and she leads our office to run very smoothly. The best part of my job is being able to help others and seeing the excitement in my patients when they’ve completed all of their treatment.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends and going to the movies when I’m not at work.
I started working in the dental field since 2012 when I completed a Registered Dental Assisting program at Monterey Peninsula College. Since then my journey within the dental field has been extremely rewarding. I enjoy working with patients and making them feel as comfortable as possible while making sure every experience is at its best. I am currently working towards a degree in Healthcare management which would allow me grow as an individual. I am from
Monterey, California. I love to cook, spend time with my family and I enjoy outdoor activities such as taking walks and relaxing at the park.
I was born in Yuma Az, and lived here for 26 years! I’m married and have 3 beautiful children. I started to persue my Dental Career in 2016 and graduated five months later. Started at Harvest Dental in 2017, I love to work with Dr. McDonald and do treatments to make patients feel confident and happy again. When im not at work i love spening time with my family.
New to dentistry and new to Yuma, I’ve been in the medical field for over 10 years. Currently enrolled a dual program BS in Healthcare Management and Masters program. Originally from Texas, the military has brought us to Yuma and now we are raising our two beautiful children here.
In our free time we enjoy watching our son play sports and our daughter dance. As a family we enjoy hiking, traveling, and visiting home when we can. Happy to be a part of great team and a wonderful dentist.
