Dr. Amanda Lacerda is married to Dr. Brad Asay, who graduated from UBC dentistry the same year. Together they own and operate Southridge Dental Clinic. Dr. Asay was raised in Prince George, so when a work opportunity came up, Dr. A and Dr. L decided to take the opportunity to be close to family. Since before graduating dental school, Dr. L and Dr. A have enjoyed a mentor/mentee relationship with the previous owner of Southridge Dental, Dr. Drew Tkachuk, who still practices dentistry at Southridge Dental as an associate dentist. Outside of dentistry, Dr. Lacerda enjoys hiking, cooking, travelling, and spending time with her two fur children.
