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.

My love of dentistry goes way back to childhood and runs in my blood! My father is a retired dentist, my mother his assistant and office manager, and my sisters are both hygienists locally. Having come from a dental-centric family, I was raised with the mantra that dentistry should be fun and something to look forward to and not feared.  I chose dentistry as my occupation because I love how multi-faceted it can be. It challenges all parts of my brain, from the creative, artistic side to the problem-solving, analytical side. My ultimate goal as a dentist would be to help establish a healthy, fun view of dentistry, starting at a young age, so that dental fear and anxiety is minimized or non-existent later on. I believe 30A Smiles is such an environment! Our team is here to help people of all ages establish and keep their smiles healthy and I’m proud to call it my home!
