"Dentistry is a big part of who I am, and I like it that way. It's my passion, it's my hobby. I've gotten to the point now, where what I do in the operator comes as second nature. This also means that being meticulous has crept into other aspects of my life which can add additional time to things like decorating a cake or painting a hallway, which isn't as favorable. It pretty much drives me nuts. "
"Each day I try to be a better person than yesterday. I think life is about people, helping one another and enjoying life. I've volunteered in different parts of the world, and as my daughter grows older I hope to teach her to do the same.
Augustyn's hobbies include volunteerism, art projects of any kind, and non-fiction reading/writing. "My favorite thing to do is to just be a mom, on a team with my husband. My mantra is Life Is Good. Not all the time and ... sometimes you might have to look for it, but most of the time, Life Is Good." She resides in Lombard with her husband Scott and daughter Ally.
