Career Elevation

Wendy Aldhamen

Wendy has been a hiring manager since 2014. She started her dental coaching career in the trenches. She began as a dental assistant in 2010: great opportunity, toxic office culture. After that, she went to work for a dream practice. As she progressed to receptionist and then office manager, she gained valuable insight into office culture and the importance of a good fit. She also learned how to become a leader and how truly valuable effective communication is to a business’s success. She created Career Elevation to fill a void in the dental business: matching talented employees with enjoyable workplaces so both will flourish.


Kim Clarke- Recruiter

I started my career in dentistry in 2017 as a dental assistant and transitioned through the various roles upfront to my final position in office: Office Manager. I have been extremely fortunate to attend many CE courses and work with some really great consultants and other dental professionals and providers in my 6+ years in office. I am excited to now use that knowledge and experience to help dental offices and dental professionals find their “perfect match” and long-term dental “work home” with Career Elevation!

I am a “dental nerd” and love all the terminology and technology, so don’t be afraid to speak the language! I love that in this position I am able to talk with so many dental professionals daily and use what I learned in offices with patients, with candidates now – to help make them feel comfortable and confident during their interviews so that they are able to really show their new potential employer their best possible self.

Outside of work I really enjoy Starbucks, traveling, cooking good food, or going out to eat and spending time with my husband and our dog Goose.


Christian Lazaro (Chris)- Senior Project Analyst

Hi, I am Christian Lazaro, but you can call me Chris. I have been gladly working virtually for Career Elevation (CE) for more than a year now. I provide assistance to our offices and associate doctor connections for all of CE along with supporting the rest of the team in their daily activities.

It has been a delight to work with CE because we treat each other as a family and work as a team. I have grown a lot and am continuously learning, not only about the business but with different fields as well.  Our boss is the best. She makes sure that no one is left behind.  

As an individual, you would want to spread your wings and be the best you can be. And CE allows me that and still have time to look after my family which is the inspiration in everything I do. 

Thank you, CE for defining Work. Life. Balance.
