How long have you with ethos orthodontics?
31 years this month
What inspired you to work in the Dental Industry?
I had braces when I was 15. Each time I went in for my adjustment I became more and more interested in the process. So when a position was advertised I jumped at the chance to apply…and here I am!
Favourite thing about working with the ethos team?
“The team” is my favourite thing about working with them. From Dr Farmer and Dr Tod who are, and have always been, wonderful, understanding and supporting each and every member of our team, who strive every day to be the best. The result of this is a happy, cohesive, fun working environment that I am fortunate to be a part of.
What is the most frequently asked question about braces?
Does it hurt? My answer is – any discomfort you may feel throughout your treatment is greatly outweighed by the excitement of seeing your brand new smile and the ongoing benefits you will experience for the rest of your life.
Most inspiring ethos moment?
Obviously being with ethos for so many years there have been plenty of inspiring moments. For me though the most extraordinary of all was being present to see Kent and Marcus release to us their vision for Ethos World. Then taking their vision and making it a reality. They prove to us every day that with passion and perseverance any goal is achievable.
What can a smile say?
A genuine smile can convey confidence and warmth that allows people to feel at ease in your presence and can brighten the mood of an entire room. Having a great smile significantly improves your self-esteem which has a positive impact of virtually every aspect of your life.
What do like to do in your spare time?
I love entertaining and spending time with family and friends and when I can, catching a movie.
Your favourite band?
I enjoy listening (and privately singing badly along) to all genres but I favour Australian Rap. So featured in my iTunes, you’ll find Hilltop Hoods, Bliss n Eso, Illy and 360.
Ultimate holiday snapshot?
Hawaii is my most favourite holiday destination but really as long as there’s a beach where I can kick back and relax, I’m happy!
