My favorite part of orthodontics is getting to know my patients and seeing the growth and transformation they go through during treatment. Every month presents new challenges and opportunities to positively change a patient's life. I am honored and grateful to have found a career that allows me to combine my love of art and science in such a rewarding way. I've been working in the Milwaukee area since completing residency, and feel that I've found a great fit here at HHB. The staff and patients provide a fun and comfortable environment, and I’m looking forward to contributing my experience to a great practice and working with everyone at HHB.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my fiance, Geoff and our puppy, Wootie. The local festivals and new restaurants keep us all pretty busy in the summer. As a kid, I was a figure skater, and in the colder months, we like to watch skating and football. Over the past few years, we've also become Bucks fans and enjoy attending games when possible. Traveling and trying to learn new languages is one of my greatest joys, and I can't wait for my next big trip. Someday I hope to finally learn to play the guitar and am working on expanding my cooking skills.
I grew up in Minnesota, then moved to Omaha for college at Creighton University. After finishing undergrad, I moved to Japan to teach English. My time abroad was an enjoyable and educational break from my education. I returned to Omaha for dental school and ultimately ended up in Milwaukee to complete my orthodontic training at Marquette. A midwesterner through and through, meeting new patients and getting to know each and every one is what makes each day so enjoyable.
