Megan chose dentistry as a career path early on. As a kid, she knew she wanted to be in the healthcare industry, and that’s when she discovered dentistry. Her dentist happened to attend her church and encouraged her to choose dentistry. She explored becoming a dentist, hygienist, or dental assistant before graduating from Reno High School. She chose dental assisting because she loves being on the treatment side of dentistry and assisting in so many different dental procedures.
While there are no formal dental assistant education requirements, Megan chose to attend Truckee Meadows Community College for two years to earn an Associate Degree in Applied Science. She felt it was essential to receive the most comprehensive career training possible and feel confident working as a dental assistant. For the last decade, she’s enjoyed her career as a dental assistant.
Megan was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, and moved to Reno in 1997. She is married, and they have a female pet rabbit, Newt. Megan’s love of rabbits started long ago. She went to the pet store to buy a fish, but then saw rabbits in a cage next to the door. There was a bunny in a cage who older rabbits were harassing. She couldn’t resist and bought the bunny. She describes rabbits as a cross between a can and a dog. Newt has no cage as she is litter trained and loves being with people.
When she’s not working, she loves doing anything outdoors. She enjoys hunting, fishing, and camping with her husband. She’s a self-professed tomboy and has some impressive skills when it comes to construction. She’s assisted her husband and his family build cabins and gates on their Eureka, Nevada hunting property.
