It is my goal to transform patient thinking with regard to dentistry by sharing knowledge and creating a balanced, calm atmosphere where health-focused dentistry is the prevailing practice. Ours is an office where each individual is treated with care and respect, and is seen as a whole person. My team and I find great joy in building personal relationships with our patients, who in turn make our lives better by sharing their life experiences with us.
To begin my career in dentistry, I graduated from Drake University with a Bachelor of Arts in biology and went on to earn my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the Indiana University School of Dentistry.
As an alum of the Pride Institute, and an active member of the American Dental Association and the Chicago Dental Society, I have stayed current with the latest in dental innovation over the years. This enables me and my team to offer the best possible care, and my patients to achieve the best possible results.
I have been a proud Northwest Indiana resident and currently reside in Ogden Dunes with my husband John. We’ve been blessed with children and grandchildren, all of whom light up our lives. My free time is often spent discovering new places and adventures, preferably outdoors with friends and family. I love exploring the dunes for exercise, bike riding, reading, and simply sharing life experiences with those around me.
I am also active in my community as a volunteer at Indiana University Northwest, Habitat for Humanity, Smiles for Life, and at my church.
