Doctor's Assistant

I have enjoyed working with Dr. Sharkey since 1995. He is a doctor I highly respect for his integrity, work ethics and kindness shown to patients and staff. I have my dental assistant, radiology & extended duty assistant licenses. We all get a great deal of satisfaction helping our patients. And I have enjoying watching their families grow.

I have happily worked for Dr. Sharkey for 21 years. I started as a front desk receptionist. With Dr. Sharkey’s encouragement, I decided to go to Howard County Community College, for my Dental Assistance certificate and became a Dental Radiation Technologist. I am now the Office manager.

I joined Dr. Sharkey and his team May 2011, after being a stay at home Mom for 4 years. Coming here with no previous dental practice knowledge. I was given the opportunity to train and I have grown so much. I enjoy my working relationship with all of our wonderful patients and I love my work family.

I began working here in the fall of 2019. Prior to that, I retired from the US Army to raise my, now grown, son and daughter. While my prior experience was in law office management, I transitioned smoothly into the front end of the practice.
