Catherine - Registered Dental Hygienist

Catherine is a Registered Dental Hygienist.  I am originally from New York and attended New York City Technical College to complete my Associates degree in Dental Hygiene.  I have been practicing hygiene since 1984(OMG!).  I attained my Pennsylvania hygiene license upon relocating in 1990.  I reside with my husband, a son in high school, daughter in middle school, my parents, 2 dogs and a Russian tortoise.  I should be living in an ark! Kidding aside, my days are certainly filled with the daily wife/mother endeavors, but I look forward to enjoying a good book and family togetherness.  I thank God for the many blessings He has given me in my life.  I am so blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of the Habakus team.  They accepted me into their office in 2006 without even looking to add onto their staff!  I receive much joy in knowing the difference I make in my patient’s health and my motto is “enjoy what you do and you will never work a day in your life!”
