A Love for Orthodontics
I love my profession. It has given me the opportunity to meet and build relationships with so many amazing people. I love getting to know each person during their treatment, watching them grow and change as their smile changes. Whether I am caring for a child or adolescent and watching them mature into a confident young adult, or working with someone who has waited years to start their treatment, it’s rewarding to be part of their transformation.
I enjoy creating beautiful smiles, while improving a person’s oral health and increasing their self-esteem. My days are spent with some of the most incredible people in the world. I truly love every minute of my work.
Education and Commitment to Continuing Education
- Doctorate of Dental Medicine, University of Kentucky
- Certificate in Orthodontics, Columbia University College of Dental Medicine
I’m a life-long learner. The continual advancements in orthodontics means we’re able to provide more comfortable care, with stronger results, in a shorter amount of time. By participating in conferences, lectures, and seminars, I’m able to remain current on those changes. For my patients, this means they are always receiving the best care and treatment available.

Outside of Work
I grew up and graduated from Carlisle High School but Springboro has been home for almost 20 years. I have four children: Chloe (21) who is working full time and going to college part-time; Gabrielle (18) who is currently at the University of Kentucky on a pre-med / dental track; Mariena (12) is in school at Springboro Intermediate. She is involved in acrobatics, violin, cello, writing, and drawing; and Jonathan (10) is in school at Five Points Elementary. He loves basketball, piano, art, and Minecraft. We also have a crazy cat named Daisy and a Sugar Glider named Baby.
When I’m not working, you will find me busy with my family, going to practices, games, music lessons, and competitions. I’m also a board member and Chief Financial Officer of The Christ Learning Center Ministries.
Personally, I’m passionate about God and my family. I love to crochet, read, and travel. And I bleed blue for my Kentucky Wildcats.
