Jaide originally hails from St. Peter and has been a part of Valley View’s team for nearly 8 years, since she was only 16! She earned her education from Minnesota State University, Mankato. What she enjoys most about work is getting to know the great patients of Valley View Dental and being able to help educate them on not only their oral health but overall, Health & Wellness as well!
Outside of the office, Jaide and her husband enjoy spending time together outdoors and going on hikes with their fur baby, a Golden Retriever named Mauer. They enjoy trips up North in the summer as well! They are also getting very anxious & excited to meet their newest addition to the family, their first child (a baby girl), due in September 2022!
