I was born and raised in a small town in eastern Iowa.  I graduated from the University of Iowa in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science in Integrative Physiology.  I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry in 2011.  After graduation, I practiced in a single-doctor general dentistry office in rural Illinois for 8 years before relocating with my family to Nashville in 2019.  The experience at my last office was fantastic because I was able to provide a wide variety of dental services to patients of all ages.

I strongly believe in attending continuing education classes regularly so that I can provide my patients with innovative and lasting dental treatment.  I completed extensive implant training at UCLA and I am Invisalign certified.  I consider myself to be a very honest and ethical person.  I believe it is important for me to educate my patients on their oral health so they can make informed decisions about their dental treatment.

Outside of the office, I enjoy caring for my husband, Tyler, and 2 daughters, Olivia and Nora.  I like to spend my time cooking, reading, and completing craft projects with my children.
