I'm Jo, the insurance coordinator at Dean Dental. I'm an animal and nature lover at heart that began growing up on a farm in West Virginia. My path to dentistry contains many twists and turns. After obtaining my degrees in wildlife and fisheries management and veterinary technology I worked in the veterinary field before switching to human medicine. The last 14 years I worked as a registered histotechnician in pathology aiding doctors diagnosing cancer. Seeking a more fulfilling work-life balance landed me at Dean Dental. My time away from the office is spent outdoors with my mini schnauzer, Wiley, with family and friends, attending concerts, working out and reading anything about nature and animals.
