¡Visito Costa Rica!

¡Visito Costa Rica!

About three and a half years ago, while in dental hygiene school, I was given the opportunity to actively participate in a dental mission trip to Guyana, South America with a few close classmates and new friends.  During our week long stay, our dental team was able to provide over $200,000 worth of dental services to 500+ patients in the village of Bath, where a beautiful new Christian church was built for the community. Community service was a passion of mine prior to this experience however; this opportunity gave me the spiritual guidance I needed to continue to do what I love doing the most: giving back to my brothers and sisters.

For the second time in my life, I am given the opportunity to once again leave the United States to utilize my medical skills, this time as a dental hygiene professional.  This Sunday, I embark to San Jose’, Costa Rica with a larger medical and dental team to provide health services to those in need.  I will be reunited with a few team members from my 2009 Guyana trip, as well as meeting new team members which I will soon call my friends.  Not only do I have the opportunity to explore another section of the world, I get to learn about a culture different from my own and (try to) speak their Spanish language.

Here’s to a new chapter of my life.
