Favorite Quote: Life is short, smile while you still have teeth.

My Mission: To help my team continuously build great relationships with their patients while making sure they are providing the best dental care they deserve.

Education & Background: A Minnesota girl who graduated from Lakeville North High school in 2011 and then moved to Utah for school for 2 years but couldn't be away from this beautiful state long because I moved back in 2014 and started my career in dentistry after. I have been helping support Mosaic Dental Nicollet since 2021.

Life & Hobbies: I love spending time with my 2 kids and fiance. In the summertime, you will find us at our local lifetime hanging out by the pool almost every weekend and when we are not there we are more than likely having brunch at our favorite restaurants or taking our 2 Goldendoodles, Ollie and Louie, out on walks and to dog parks. I also love traveling, going to concerts, and spending most of my kid's free time reading or doing crafts.
