I love being an orthodontist! Everyday I’m at work, I get to use my hands and artistic skills to improve my patients’ health and help them feel better about themselves. I cherish the bonds that I form with my patients as we work towards a common goal. In particular, I enjoy working with children because they have such an excitement for life and curiosity about the world. I consider myself truly blessed to be part of this profession.

In the Community
I was born and raised in the Bay Area and attended college in the East Bay. I have always had a heart for children and service and have volunteered in various children’s ministries and service trips to Ghana and Bolivia.
During dental school, I was involved in children’s educational programs, as well as dental service trips to Guatemala and El Salvador. Serving others overseas always reminds me that a smile is universal and the impact one's smile can have on others is priceless.
Outside the Office
I enjoy spending time with my husband and getting to know our newborn daughter, Taylor. I also enjoy traveling, spending time with family and friends, Pilates, and walking my other baby, Mochi, who in dog years is now much older than I am!
