As a dentist, I look forward to creating lifelong relationships with my patients while providing a comfortable environment for them to receive dental care. I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry, but I have a special interest in cosmetic and sedation dentistry. The best feeling is to get patients out of pain, improve their function, and give them the smile they have always wanted. I love working with patients of all ages, from young children to mature adults. It is the relationships I make with each patient that I enjoy the most.

Family and Community
I grew up in the Twin Cities and now reside in North Liberty with my husband Justin, our children Callie and Tyson, and our springer spaniels Benelli and Winchester. In my free time I stay active through running, group fitness, and soccer. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, wine club, and traveling. As former student athletes at the University of Iowa, my husband and I have a passion for Hawkeye athletics.
I enjoy speaking to community organizations such as Mom’s Club groups, preschools, and church organizations to educate them about dental health. I also volunteer at the Cedar Rapids Free Dental Clinic and Iowa Mission of Mercy to provide dental care to those who would otherwise not have access to the treatments they need.
