Life & Hobbies

“I love my family! My husband stays home with our three active and beautiful children while I work! I love to cook and bake and spend quality time with the people I love – it’s the best when they all overlap! I enjoy traveling whenever I get the chance. Some of my favorite places I’ve visited are Prague, Machu Pichu, and Ireland. I have participated in several dental mission trips to Honduras, the Dominican Republic and Peru. I love the opportunity to serve those who do not have access to quality dental care! I also love a good home renovation project. My husband and I are dreamers and true DIYers.

If I weren’t a dentist, I would have loved to have been an architect or designer. However, I have been in the dental field since I was in high school - my first job was in a dental office – and I know this is the right place for me because it’s so fulfilling to care for patients with compassion and empathy!”
