PERSONAL
Smiling giraffe, cackling hyenas, and of course, the majestic African elephant were just a few of Dr. June’s childhood neighbors growing up in Kenya’s coastal lowland of Mombasa. Dr. June was born in Mombasa and grew up a farmgirl near the Shimba Hills National Reserve, home to one of Earth’s last remaining coastal rainforests. Raised by teachers who instilled the value of education, Dr. June left for the United States at age 19 to pursue her studies in America. During college Dr. June worked as a dental assistant and nanny. She is a passionate advocate for preventative dentistry techniques for children 0-5 years old with infant education programs for new parents, daycare providers and at pre-K and elementary schools. She loves to spend time with her family gardening, volunteering, watching movies and listening to the sweet sounds of the ocean.
