I grew up in sunny South Florida and attended the University of Florida where I earned a BS with honors in statistics. This is also where I met my husband and we have been happily married for over 19 years! Upon graduation from the University of Florida, I was asked to give the commencement speech in the University’s basketball arena. It was an amazing experience and I was prepared to continue my education in Florida; however, I could not pass up the opportunity to attend an Ivy League university (University of Pennsylvania) on scholarship, for dental school.
I completed my orthodontic residency at the University of Missouri, Kansas City in 2008. Over the next eight years, I gained much experience as I worked at Fry Orthodontics Specialists, a privately owned Kansas practice with a VIP: Diamond Plus Invisalign® provider status (currently the highest Invisalign status that can be obtained). In 2016, my family decided to relocate to Tucson, Arizona to be closer to family and escape the cold Midwest winters.
