I first became interested in the orthodontic profession after getting braces as a teenager. The smile transformation my orthodontist gave me in my hometown of St. Cloud, Minnesota inspired me to eventually pursue the education and expertise necessary to deliver such a life-changing gift to others.
I completed mathematics and physics degrees at Southeast Missouri State University in 2011, while also competing in NCAA gymnastics for 5 years. After earning a Master’s degree in Bio-mechanics at Ball State University, I realized that I wanted to have a more direct, profound impact on people’s lives through orthodontics. I then earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from New York University College of Dentistry in 2017, followed by a Specialty Certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry.
Staying at the forefront of the rapid advances in orthodontics is particularly important to me in order to provide the best and most advanced care available. I am passionate about ensuring a comfortable and fun orthodontic experience while creating beautiful and confident smiles to last a lifetime!
