Sara, Office Manager
I graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2000, majoring in Business Information Technology. I worked at Sun Microsystems for a number of years before I realized that the corporate world was not for me. At my previous job, I was around computers the majority of the time and I had little interaction with people. In 2004, I started working for Creek Bridge Dental. It’s getting to know the patients that have made this job so rewarding. Outside of work, I enjoy gardening and trying new foods.

I really enjoy my job and the people I work with! When I am not at work, I enjoy working out, going to the lake, and of course, shopping.
