One piece of advice Katelyn would like to give current students: “You get out of a situation what you put into it. Therefore, if you put in the hard work, time and dedication—you will be successful.”

One thing Katelyn enjoys most about her job: “That I have the opportunity to work with students. As a recent graduate I find it easier to connect with students because I can reflect back on my previous experiences. As a result, I believe I am able to communicate and teach in a way so that the students truly grasp the concepts, information and skills.”

In 5 years, Katelyn would like to: “Either be working within a dental office or teaching full time. I enjoy working within an office and interacting with the students however, if I had the opportunity to do both, I would.”
