Berenice has been in the dental field since 2005. She was trained in Houston, Texas where she received her Registered Dental Assistant certification. She enjoyed working in both the clinical and administrative sides of dentistry, but she soon realized that her talents were better utilized in the business aspect of the dental office.

She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Liberty University in 2013.

Berenice’s philosophy in life is to take in every experience as a positive one, absorbing the meaningful lessons each moment offers.
