Financial Coordinator

Although Jennifer has only been in the dental field for two years, she has extensive customer service experience from her work as a tax preparer and bank teller. Jennifer loves working at Bright Star Kids Dentistry because the kids remind her of her own childhood experience in China. She was very frightened of the dentist as a child, and thus she has a desire to make all children comfortable and relaxed when they come to visit our clinic. She wants kids to see that going to the dentist can be fun too!

Jennifer has a wonderful husband, two beautiful daughters and a golden retriever named Jonas. In her spare time, she enjoys swimming and playing tennis, and she is fluent in both Mandarin and Cantonese.
