Meet The Team


Patient Care Coordinator

I'm originally from Arizona moving to California when I was 7 years old.  I currently reside in Los Angeles County.  I graduated in 1976 from Long Beach City College where I received my AA degree and Registered Dental Assistant license including coronal polishing and radiology certificates.  I've had an exciting 39 years in dentistry while working as a Registered Dental Assistant, Receptionist, Supervisor and Office Manager.  I enjoy getting to know our patients and trying to make each visit as pleasant as possible.  I have two grown children, love dogs and enjoy traveling, gardening, fishing and reading a good book.


Patient Care Coordinator

Dentistry has been a big part of my life for many years. Prior to my departure from a previous dental office in 2013 where I worked for over 10 years, my office manager passed along her exceptional knowledge and skills. At the time of my departure, I felt confident and prepared for the next step in my life and I have never looked back. My career as a Patient Care Coordinator is very fulfilling and satisfying. I absolutely love what I do. It is my goal to make sure that you have an exceptional experience from the moment you walk in the door at Johnson & Shimizu Dentistry to the moment that you leave. Seeing our patients' beautiful smiles is awesome!

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have two amazing daughters that mean the world to me. In my spare time, I also enjoy exercising, bike riding, watching football, and  spending time with my friends and family.
