While in dental school she volunteered for two years with the mobile clinic and as a teaching assistant for many of the undergraduate classes. She was awarded the Charles Pincus Memorial Award for outstanding achievement in the field of Esthetic Restorative Dentistry and the Community Dentistry and Public Health Award. She graduated in 2004 and returned to Bakersfield to be near her family and friends.
