As an orthodontist, I strive to provide the highest quality of patient care in regards to both clinical outcome and patient experience.
My own orthodontic experience is what led me to this profession. Growing up I was self-conscious of my teeth and rarely smiled. A straight smile impacted my life by improving my self-confidence, self-esteem, and overall happiness. I feel so lucky that I have the opportunity to impact the lives of other people in a similar way!
In the early years of my education, I was a Division I student-athlete on the women’s basketball team at the University of Northern Iowa. I am grateful for the coaches, professors, and mentors who encouraged me to pursue my love of sciences and helped me develop both personally and professionally.

Beyond the Practice
As Minnesota natives, my husband and I enjoy summers boating on the water. Outside of work, I can often be found working out at the gym or spending time with family and friends. Our love for travel has taken my husband, Jerome, and me all around the globe – my favorite experience thus far was visiting Turkey! In my spare time, I indulge my love of the outdoors at our family cabin in Wisconsin.
