Meet The Team



Registered Dental Hygienist

I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco, in June of 2015.  During my time in dental school I had the opportunity to volunteer in clinics providing care for underprivileged patients; those experience helped me to realize the importance of educating people in maintaining proper oral hygiene.  In treating some severe gum disease cases I was able to see the overall health benefits gained from attaining and maintaining good oral hygiene.  I enjoy working with all our patients and helping them to those ends while utilizing all the education and skills I've acquired from school, treatment experience and from working with Dr. Kitchen and our very knowledgeable Staff.  When I'm not in the office providing dental care I like to spend time with my family; I love going to the movies, watching sports (especially soccer) and playing with our family pets, a Siberian Husky and a Toy Poodle.


Social Media Manager

This fall, as a transfer student from San Diego Mesa College, I will be attending San Diego State University and will major in communication studies. I was born and raised in Detroit, MI, and moved to San Diego 7 years ago. In my free time I love surfing, singing, playing with my dogs, going to the movies, and spending time with family and friends!

I am the social media manager for Dr. Kitchen's office. I help manage their Instagram account, @lajollateeth, and their Facebook page, @SDcosmeticdental. I also create monthly newsletters for Dr. Kitchen's patients, and help Barbara around the office.
