Welcoming patients was natural for her after all of her customer service experience. Every day she goes above and beyond her duties as Receptionist to offer a caring environment for patients making them feel at ease. When she is not manning the front desk of the Undergraduate Teaching Clinic she loves to cook gourmet meals, have a glass of wine and travel to warm destinations.  Click here to read the full article.
