Born in California, but raised along the emerald coast, I graduated from Niceville High School in 2003. I attended the University of Florida and graduated cum laude with a BS in Microbiology and Cell Science. I decided to stay in Gainesville and attend the UF College of Dentistry, graduating in 2012. After some consideration, my husband and I decided to move back to Northwest Florida, where I practiced in Destin and Panama City Beach for 10 years before finding my 30A Smiles home!
I currently reside in Santa Rosa Beach with my husband Joe, our two sons, Mac and Bo, our crazy mutt, Birdie, and neurotic cat, Ivan (the terrible!). I love reading and crafting and creating in my spare time, but if we’re not at home, you’ll find us in the woods or on the water, as my boys are avid outdoorsmen.
