A partner in leadership through continued growth
Jill comes to Vista Verde with a wide range of experience in clinical and operational roles. Starting out as a Dental Assistant, she made the decision to invest in her education and jump in, hands on. While working as a clinician, she discovered a passion for helping her clinical team in a different way; in an operational role. “I took a leap of faith and wanted to try something new and absolutely fell in love.”
In her most recent role in Regional Operations with Heartland Dental, Jill started as a Practice manager of one location, eventually becoming responsible for the growth and results of 33 locations.
When asked why she made the decision to join Vista Verde, she said “It’s the people, the entire team is so involved and hands-on which is really refreshing. There’s tremendous potential here, and what we provide to our patients changes lives on a daily basis; something I’m really excited to be a part of.”
