Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Our Mission

NADG recognizes that putting people first requires us to understand the groups and individuals who are our team members. Only then can we celebrate our differences and respect what makes us unique. At NADG, we are committed to continuing our journey to create a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion, where each team member feels heard, respected, and valued, so we can all bring our authentic selves to work.


There was once a stubborn, hard-headed, little girl who loved candy.

Of course, it was me. I was a bad patient with lots of cavities. Our dentist was a family friend. He would bribe me with toys and puzzles to make me sit still in his chair. I do, though, remember being mesmerized watching a beautiful butterfly come out of its cocoon while the dentist performed an extraction.

What makes me uniquely me? As my mother’s only child and the youngest of my dad’s five children I have seen and lived a life filled with drama, loss, love, and laughter. Being raised by a single mother forced me to grow up faster than most. When my mom was working, in school, or just out, I learned at an early age to be independent, strong, spiritual, and responsible for myself.
