Jasmine hails from the booming metropolis of Belen, NM, where she attended and graduated from Belen High School in 2016. Jasmine became a certified dental assistant after graduating from Pima Medical Institute here in Albuquerque and joined our team shortly afterwards. Having begun as our hygiene assistant, Jasmine quickly learned how to juggle many responsibilities and patients simultaneously, working with all four of our office’s accelerated hygienists. Having proven to be a quick learner, Jasmine was promoted to being one of Dr. Shepherd’s personal dental assistants in 2018, where she spends most of her time (although you can still see her on occasion helping our hygienists when Dr. Shepherd is out of the office). When she isn’t at work, Jasmine is a full-time mother to a darling little girl named Kelsey. She enjoys going to the gym and being outdoors.
