Dental Hygienist
My family moved to Phoenix from Virginia, Minnesota 61 years ago (making me almost a native). After graduating from Central High School, I completed the dental assisting program at Phoenix College. I worked as a dental assistant for 2 years then went on to my second career in Banking. That career lasted 12 years after which I was accepted into the Dental Hygiene program at Phoenix College. Upon graduation, I worked for several General Dentists, a Periodontist and a Prosthodontist. Dr. Zacher and I have worked together for 26 years. My husband Bob and I have 3 children. My oldest son Parker is married to a Veternarian Stephanie and they have an 8 year old son Cooper. (yes, I am a proud Grandmother!). Son R.J. is a supervisor for Costco. Daughter Kassandra works for Paychex.

Dental Hygienist
I was born and raised in Phoenix. I attended St. Francis Xavier (with Dr. Zacher), Xavier College Prep and Loyola Marymount University. After college I moved to Boston where I attended Forsyth School of Dental Hygiene where, upon graduation, I began my career back East. In 2002, when I grew tired of the cold winters, I convinced my husband to move to Phoenix, where I have been working with Dr. Zacher ever since. Our staff is amazing and I love the family atmosphere in our office. I also have the pleasure of caring for many of the friends and families that Dr. Zacher and I grew up with. I have been married for 24 years and have 2 children. I spend my spare time enjoying my family and friends.
