 Chris- Hygiene Coordinator

Hi my name is Chris. I am the newest member of the Peach Tree Dental Family. The Peach Tree staff and Dr Burk have treated me like family since the first day. That’s what kind of service you will receive at Peach Tree; to be treated like family. My family and I have lived in Albuquerque for over 16 years. My husband Jason and I have been married for over 20 years. We have 5 boys. We enjoy the beautiful sunsets in Albuquerque; where all of the colors of the rainbow dance in the sky. For family adventures, we go hiking, camping and on road trips. We are active parents in our boys extra curricular activities including basketball, rugby, orchestra, high school marching band, and track & field. After 20+ years of being out of school, Chris has decided to continue her college education online at BYU Idaho, with hopes to receive her bachelors in Business Communications. Chris enjoys sewing, knitting, cross stitching, baking for her family and the occasional piece of chocolate. She hasn’t met a piece of chocolate she hasn’t liked.
