Front Office Manager
I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, but moved to Tucson in 1991. I have enjoyed working in various fields, always making people smile, which finally led me to a career in dentistry. I attended Pima Medical Institute and graduated in 2007 as a certified dental assistant. I interned at this office and was hired after graduating, and have spent the past few years in the front office gaining knowledge of insurance billing and coding and scheduling, while working with patients. I really enjoy working with the public, and making patients feel comfortable and happy. Our team works really hard to achieve a common goal: making our patients smile! Outside of work I am a full-time mother of two beautiful daughters, Isabella and Gabby, as well as being a wife to my amazing husband of 14 years. I spend my spare time managing my daughter’s softball team, the Shehawks! Our family are also huge fans of the Dallas Cowboys and the Arizona Wildcats!
I help make sure our office runs smoothly and efficiently so Dr. Schumer and our clinical team can focus on providing top-quality patient care. Though I’m new to this office, I have 22 years of experience in the medical field, 18 of which were in practice management. I’m happy to bring my knowledge and skills to Dr. Schumer’s office. It is reassuring to know that our patients are getting the best dental care because of Dr. Schumer’s integrity and dedication to excellence. I love seeing all our patients’ smiles! I am a native of Arizona: born and raised in Tucson. My husband Andres and I have been married for 20 years. We have three wonderful children — Andres II, Ernesto, and Iliana Milan — as well as a Yorkie named Oggie. I love traveling, especially to Rocky Point and Sedona, going swimming, watching movies, dancing, and spending time with family and friends.
Registered Dental Hygienist (RHD)
I was born in Omaha, Nebraska and moved to Phoenix when I was ten years old. I moved to Tucson in 1992 to attend the U of A and received my Bachelor of Arts in anthropology and religious studies. After having two kids, I decided to follow my two older sisters into the dental field. My oldest sister is a periodontist and I worked for her for six months until I started hygiene school. In 2012, I joined the wonderful team at Dr. Schumer’s office. I love meeting new people and making friendships with patients. I enjoy teaching them about oral hygiene and working with them to improve their overall health. My oldest child, Caius, is in the U.S. Navy nuclear engineer program. My youngest child, Ailey, is in high school. My hobbies include hiking, roller blading, dancing, and live theater.
Registered Dental Hygienist (RHD)
I earned my Bachelor of Arts in dental hygiene from Idaho State University in 1983 and spent 26 years working with Dr. Mohr before Dr. Schumer took over the practice in 2012. I don’t know how I wouldn’t be able to love working with such a great group of people! Our team is made up of the kindest, most friendly people I’ve ever met. We all love building relationships with our patients and making them smile! I am a native of Arizona; I was born and raised in Tempe. I moved to Tucson in 1986 with my husband Steve. I love spending time with my family, which includes my three children — Travis, Torey, and Connor — as well as playing tennis.
Born and raised in Nogales, I graduated from Nogales High School in 2009. Shortly after, I moved to Tucson where I started school at Carrington College and graduated as a dental assistant. At Dr. Schumer’s office, I assist with patient care and help out at the front desk when needed. I aspire to continue my education in the dental field, to carry on many more joyful years of making patients happy. On my time off, I like to spend time with my boyfriend Victor and my wonderful family.
I am a native Tucsonan and have been a dental assistant since 2000. I have worked at a few offices during my career, but have expanded my role at Dr. Schumer’s office to include administrative work as well. I’m always up for a new challenge! When working with patients, I try my best to help them have a comfortable and positive dental experience. I love working with Dr. Schumer and the rest of the team because we have all become great friends over the years. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful husband Jessie and our two sons, Donovon and Emmett. We love being outdoors hiking, fishing, riding bikes, and watching our sons play baseball.
