She then went to Oregon Health and Science University, School of Dentistry in 2009, and started her dream to become a dentist. Her passion for dentistry grew more and more as she got more in depth with her study. In 2011, she got a scholarship which made her become a National Heath Service Corps scholar. The program gave her a chance to become involve in community health and leadership. She got married in 2012 with her five years long friend, John. She graduated from OHSU school of dentistry in 2013 and started her dental journey. Her and John moved to Laredo, Texas where 99% of population are Hispanic. She started working at Gateway Community Health Clinic where she got to serve many uninsured farmers, single mothers and their kids for about a year and a half. There, she also learned her first Spanish through her assistants. Due to her second baby on the way, they decided to move back to Oregon where all their families reside. She accepted an offer at Northwest Human Services Community Health Clinic where she continued her journey to serve uninsured, homeless and farmer patients. Everyday for her going to work is a blessing. However she wanted her babies to be closer to their grandparents. They then moved back to Gresham. She has now took on the opportunity to open her first dental clinic while still working part time at North West Human Services! 

She is now in Gresham and feel so blessed to be here. She wants to build her family as well as her clinic in the Gresham community.
