I love what I do! It is amazing to help people improve their self-esteem and create healthy, beautiful smiles! Getting to know my patients throughout the course of treatment is so much fun—you become family! I strive to create an atmosphere that is focused on you. You will see me and interact with me at EVERY APPOINTMENT! We laugh a lot in our office and love to make you laugh, too.

Continuing Education & Professional Collaboration
I am passionate about keeping up with the orthodontic literature and attending continuing education meetings in order to provide you and your family with the best care and most current techniques. Communication with other professionals is equally important. I am a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, American Dental Association, and Mineral Area Dental Study Club.
Outside the Office
I grew up in Herculaneum and graduated from Herculaneum High School. I am blessed to have the most supportive husband, Alan, and two beautiful daughters, Eliza and Lucy. We love to walk our dog, Sadie, watch the Cardinals on TV, and play in the park with the girls!
