One of my favorite things about orthodontics is being able to make lasting relationships with each patient and family while providing exceptional care. It is a joy and a privilege to share our patients exciting life achievements while working on their smile transformation.
I enjoy providing personalized treatment to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile for each patient. I have advanced training in treating complex dental malocclusions and skeletal anomalies, including impacted teeth, missing teeth and extractions, cleft palate, and severe skeletal discrepancies.
Training and Continuing Education
I received my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Florida and was subsequently honored with the induction into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society. I stayed at the University of Florida to complete my three-year orthodontic residency, where I received a Certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics and a Master of Science degree. Soon after my graduation, I became board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics.
I believe in lifelong learning and that education does not end at graduation. I continue to learn by completing continuing education courses annually to ensure I am providing the most current treatment for our patients.

I was born in Ohio but spent my childhood moving around the US before landing in southern Indiana. After receiving my Bachelor of Science from Purdue University, I relocated to Gainesville, FL, where I met my husband Phil. In my free time, I enjoy exercising, traveling, spending time outdoors, and spending time with Phil, family, and friends.
