I grew up in the small town of Klamath Falls in Southern Oregon, the type of town where you could not go anywhere without seeing somebody you knew. I am now happy to call this friendly valley my home, where I can learn and grow with my community and with my patients. Having grown up with one consistent and dependable dentist throughout my youth, this is the type of family dentist I strive to be for my patients. Although a former Northampton transplant during my time spent as an undergraduate at Smith College, I now reside in Easthampton.
I obtained my dental education at Rutgers Dental School formerly known as University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. There, I was inducted to Gamma Pi Delta Prosthodontic honor society. Through participation in continuing education courses I am dedicated to providing current and quality dentistry to my family of patients. My dental memberships include the Massachusetts Dental Society, American Dental Association, and Pioneer Valley Women Dentists.
When I am not at work, you can find me out for a walk with my dog, Rocky, dropping in on any interesting dance class that crosses my path, lifting weights, or trying out a new restaurant. Most recently, I have been attempting to learn to snowboard. I frequently take weekend trips to NYC, but do my best to travel and see as much of this blue-green planet as possible.
I am very much enjoying my first years in private dental practice, being able to transform my passion for science, art, and patient care into my profession.
