Jessi graduated from St. Cloud Technical and Community College’s dental hygiene program and joined dh Dental Care in 2012. She is sometimes referred to as the “office whistler,” always whistling a tune away as she works. Jessi loves being a part of the community, and spends as much time as possible working with people of all ages from pre-school to the nursing home, educating them about the importance of proper dental care.
Away from the office, Jessi can be found anywhere from fishing out on the lake, to hunting the vast forests of St. Wendel, blasting away on her saxophone as part of Sartell’s Community Band, playing with her yellow lab, Chewy, or taking a break from it all in the yoga studio.
