Sue, Dental Hygienist
Since graduating from IPFW with my LDH degree, I have been a dental hygientist for many years. I recently moved back to Fort Wayne after living in Naples, Florida the past 20 years. I am asked quite frequently why I moved back to Fort Wayne and my answer is FAMILY. I am a mother of a beautiful daughter, of whom I'm very proud. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, remodeling my house, refurbishing antiques, and crafts.
