When not busy with wok and school, you can find Lilly reading, crocheting, playing with Sox (her pet hedgehog) or exploring the very many restaurants Winnipeg has to offer.
According to Lilly, the best part about dental hygiene is getting to build a relationship with her patients and see to not only their oral health needs throughout their lives, but also see how her patients’ lives change with new kids/grandkids, pets, jobs, hobbies, and travel.
