Born and raised in Lemoore, Heather began her career in the dental field in 2006. She started by graduating from San Joaquin Valley College with an Associate of Science Degree and a dental assisting certificate. In 2007, she completed the state boards and became a licensed dental assistant. She then went to work in a very prominent multi-doctor practice as an Oral Surgical Assistant and Patient Coordinator where she stayed for eight years. During that time, she learned how to manage and maintain an office and she is very happy to apply that knowledge here with Dr. Her-Ellison and the team. What Heather enjoys most as the Office Manager is the opportunity to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome every time they visit the practice. She also appreciates getting to know the community and being actively involved on both a personal and professional level. Heather is married and has three children that keep her very busy outside of the office. She enjoys reading, running, and shuttling her kids around to various activities.
