“When you are a leader and move in a certain direction and decide to do something, you will never make everyone happy.”
“These things are always a team effort.”
“They are doing those training programs all over the state.”
“They are doing 6 people at a time, every half hour.”
“It is a little less technique sensitive than intraoral injections.”
“There are no injections we give in the mouth that you use a dart like motion.”
“This came up and I said here is my way to really give back and to really make a difference.”
“Look at someone who has achieved what you want to achieve, and ask them how they did it.”

Thank you so much for all you have done for hygienists in the state of CT! You have shown yourself to be so capable, compassionate , supportive and all the while showing such leadership! You are admired and appreciated! I hope that I am one day soon able to also administer the vaccine, being retired, I would love to feel that I can give back at this time in my life during this pandemic. I have been able to achieve the certification to give the vaccine and I am awaiting the availability of need, Thanks for all that you have done, your amazing!
Thanks for all that you have done on a National level and for continuing to be involved in promoting dental hygiene! This interview was exceptional!
