Dentistry is a rewarding profession, and practicing it in the town in which I grew up makes it even more so. I enjoy helping others in a way that they cannot themselves.
I enjoy being able to help others achieve the health and smile they’ve always wanted, whether through preventive care or by alleviating pain. Restoring function, aesthetics, and confidence with the help of dentistry brings me a lot of joy.
The doctors, staff, and I at Meridian Dental Clinic share a treatment philosophy of patient-first care, ensuring that patients are happy and satisfied with their treatment. We build relationships with patients based on trust, respect, and honesty to reach their oral health goals.
Focus on Education
- Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry – Lehigh University, Pennsylvania, PA
- Doctorate of Dental Medicine – Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, OR
Dentistry is constantly changing with innovative technology, techniques, and materials. Continuing education is important to stay up to date with the innovative advances to the dental field. I like to provide the best treatment options for comprehensive care so patients enjoy their dental home.
Most recently, I completed CE with Invisalign, and plan on taking courses through Washington State Dental Association Academy, Western Society of Periodontology, University of Washington, Pacific Northwest Dental Conference, Oregon Dental Conference, and Spear Education.

Outside the Office
I was born and raised in Federal Way. After eight years away for college and dental school, I moved back to the area with my English bull terrier. She loves going on hikes, sun bathing, playing with other dogs, and wading in water.
In my free time, I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, skiing, mountaineering, camping, running, traveling, and riding horses. I enjoy watching movies and spending time in Seattle at sports games or trying different restaurants. I'm a big fan of the Mariners and Seahawks!
In the Community
I am passionate about giving back to the community where I grew up. I have volunteered at Medical Teams International (MTI) dental vans, Mission of Mercy, and Compassion Clinics in Oregon and Washington. I am also involved with church and organized dentistry. I appreciated the mentoring I received when I grew up around here, and want to make sure that others have the same opportunity.
