I've been blessed with the unique privilege to provide beautiful, healthy, and long lasting smiles for Snoqualmie Valley and the surrounding communities. Orthodontics is not just my profession but also my passion. I value each and every relationship created with patients and their families on the journey to a more beautiful, confident smile. I stay current on the latest trends and technological advancements within the orthodontic industry to provide the best quality service/results possible.
I'm a Washington State native from Bellingham, Washington. I was raised in a family and city that valued spending time in nature and being active in the outdoors. I enjoy hiking, backpacking, camping, skiing, rock climbing, boating, and a multitude of other activities.
My educational journey began at the University of Washington. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with an emphasis in literature while simultaneously completing the necessary coursework for dental school. At the University of Washington, I was inducted in the Phi Beta Kappa academic honor society and I was also very active in philanthropic programs in the community. After completing my undergraduate studies, I traveled across the country to complete my dental training at the Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine. I was fortunate to graduate in the top of my class and I was inducted into a very selective and prestigious honors dental society Omicron Kappa Upsilon.
The last leg of my educational journey involved completing my Masters of Science in Dentistry and Orthodontic Specialty training at the University of Colorado Denver School of Dental Medicine. I had the privilege of being mentored and taught by world renowned Orthodontists and Academics. The diverse, rigorous breadth of the orthodontic residency provided me with an exceptional foundation to become the proficient practitioner that I am today.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to provide you and your family the beautiful, long lasting smiles and superior service that you deserve.
