Now that I am raising a family of my own, I am overjoyed to be back around my friends and family! My husband, Cody, also grew up locally and went to OSU at the same time as me. We love small town communities and the opportunity to show our young children Henry, Emma, and Sophia, country life and cultivate in them our shared love of the outdoors. In my free time I try to be 100% present for my kids, because while I am a dentist, I’m a mom first and foremost. Right now, we enjoy arts and crafts, riding bikes and playing outside, and simply being together. Eventually, I look forward to watching my children figure out what extracurricular activities they are passionate about and getting to watch that passion and excitement shine.
I believe in treating my patients like family. I strive to take a comprehensive approach to my treatment planning while emphasizing prevention. Overall, I enjoy the ability to help people have happy, healthy smiles. I am a member of the American Dental Association, the Oregon Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry and the Marion and Polk Dental Society.
