It goes without saying that our family dentistry places great importance on our employees’ health and well-being.
Within this section learn more about the excellent staff Dr. Woodruff has working for him:
Susan Pearce grew up in Springfield, PA just west of Philadelphia, but she has live in the Lehigh Valley for the last 37 years, so she really is Lehigh Valley person. We’ve got “dibs”, not Philadelphia. She graduated from Elizabethtown College with a degree in business. Susan has worked in the dental career field since high school days for 40 years. Her out of work activities include cooking, taking care of feral cats. She has been lucky to have traveled extensively and her favorite trip was a sailing trip to the US Virgin Islands.
“J.J.” as she likes to be called grew up outside of Philadelphia in the western suburbs of Delaware County. She moved to the Lehigh Valley 6 years ago and lives just across the river in Phillipsburg NJ. OK, we will let that slide and still consider her part of the Lehigh Valley. “J J” had a previous career in retail and corporate sales for Avon working from New York City. After that experience she decided that was too much and moved west. She had always wanted a career in the dental profession and completed training as a dental assistant. “J J” has a 10 year old son, Aidan, and 3 four legged children, cats Sade, Figero, and GusGus. Her many “off-duty” activities include outdoor fun, cooking, reading, and watching movies.
