Born and raised in Petaluma, Heather chose to stay local and attended the College of Marin Dental Assisting program in 2016. Heather always knew that she had a passion for working with children and wanted to find a job that would allow her to work closely with kids, helping them with their hygiene and educating them on everything she learned in the Dental Assisting Program.
During her study at the College of Marin, Heather started an internship at Dr. Espinosa’s office and quickly made herself an indispensable member of the team. Heather then joined the team full-time as Dr. Espinosa’s lead assistant shortly after her graduation and quickly recognized her passion and ability to connect with the children in regards to hygiene education, cavity prevention, and behavior management.
In 2018, Heather and her husband Brian welcomed their first baby boy, Wyatt into their family and he instantly became the light of their life. In her free time, Heather enjoys spending quality time watching her fast-growing son and cooking for her loved ones. Heather loves to tackle DIY projects both in the office and at home, and one of her favorite pastimes is taking a walk with the family dog, Bonnie.
Heather has been an amazing addition to our team and always diligent care to guide and educate the children during their visits. Heather has been vital to keeping the office organized and running smoothly since her first days with Dr. Espinosa. Heather may wear many hats around the office, but one thing is for sure – she will always have a home in Dr. Espinosa’s office.
