Our Mission

The Aligned Hygienist is dedicated to enhancing the well-being and ergonomic practices of dental professionals. Our mission focuses on alleviating work-related pain and improving overall health through specialized yoga therapy and ergonomics consulting. We aim to empower dental hygienists and practitioners to achieve a pain-free, productive work life, fostering a healthier dental community where professional care and personal wellness thrive in unison.

With 15 years under my belt as a practicing Dental Hygienist, my journey through chronic pain has reshaped my career into that of a Yoga Therapist, Ergonomics Consultant, and the proud founder of The Aligned Hygienist. My struggle with pain transformed into my driving purpose, fueling my dedication to the well-being of dental professionals. My blend of personal struggle with chronic pain, recovery from injury, expertise in yoga therapy, ergonomics, and stress management equips me to support dental professionals in achieving optimal health—physically, mentally, and energetically.

My path took a pivotal turn when facing the possibility of disability and contemplating alternative careers led me to embrace yoga. Initially becoming a yoga teacher, I advanced my practice to become a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) and a Certified Ergonomics Assessment Specialist (CEAS) specifically for dental professionals.

Beyond individual support, I’m deeply committed to assisting dental practices, organizations, and Dental Support Organizations (DSOs) in cultivating healthier habits, fostering a positive and supportive team culture, and achieving a triple win scenario. As a public speaker, writer, and the host of The Aligned Hygienist Podcast, I actively share my insights and experiences. Furthermore, as a Key Opinion Leader, content creator, influencer, and ergonomics advisor for dental products and brands, I continue to advocate for the health and well-being of dental professionals everywhere.
