Most Rewarding part of my practice: Engaging with patients and their families. I love caring for my community and providing my patients with a comfortable and safe environment. 

Most Rewarding Case: Any time I am relieving someone of pain, especially chronic dental pain and infection. I love hearing back from my patients that they are shocked at how great they feel now that they do not have to suffer from dental pain any longer. 

Hobbies: I love spending my free time with my husband, children and dogs. We love to go biking and skiing and travel as a family.
