  • Year of Graduation: 1999

Reason that I chose dentistry as a career:
Taking a child who has a sincere fear of coming to the dentist, speaking with them and working with them, resulting in a positive dental experience, is rewarding. I believe this foundation of positive experience can change the outlook on dental visits for a lifetime. I also believe promoting effective preventive measures will ensure a lifetime of oral health.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching college football games and traveling.
