Brandi Hartwell, RDH
I received my Bachelors Degree from Central Michigan University in 2000, concentrating on Recreation Therapy. I had the pleasure of working with numerous populations that were involved in challenging situations. I was the witness to their triumphs as well. A chapter in my life that will always be remembered. I've been married 16 years and have 2 daughters, Ella and Reese. I was lucky enough to stay home with them until school age. At that point, I decided I needed a change. I picked up a Baker College catalog and was registered in the Dental Hygiene program the same week. That impulsive decision turned into a new path that I'm so grateful I found.
