Congratulations to Jennifer Bowden!
Burgaw, North Carolina
“I began my career in dentistry in 2004 when I graduated with an Associates Degree of Applied Science in Dental Assisting from Coastal Carolina Community College. Upon graduation I began working with Dr. Azizi as her Dental Assistant. I have always loved every aspect of the dental field & I look forward to meeting & getting to know all of our patients.
I currently live in Burgaw with my husband, Trey, & our daughter, Laura Ann. As a family we enjoy all outdoor activities, & photography is my favorite hobby.
My husband and his father built our house years ago in memory of his mother who passed away due to breast cancer. Every nail was put in by my husband and his father and the entire inside was completed by myself and my husband. My father custom built my kitchen cabinets so our house is more than just a house, it has so much sentimental value to it. Last year my husband fell 30 feet head first out of his deer stand and by the grace of God, he walked away with only a broken shoulder. However due to physical therapy, surgery and being out of work for a period of time, he lost his job and all insurance. After that we were then displaced from our home due to Hurricane Matthew.
We’ve had to raise our house and have been out of it since October of last year. We’re trying out best to do everything we can to get back into it. The raising part is done and now its our time to build the deck that will surround the house so we can get into it to finish restoring the inside. We’ve applied for local grants in Pender County to help raise our house for the past 3 years and each time we were denied stating we didn’t have enough “damage” to our home for them to justify the cost and not enough people applied for them to justify it, therefore the funds went elsewhere.”
