I was born in Massachusetts but have spent most of my life in Missouri. I grew up in Springfield, MO, moved to Columbia in 1990, and have lived here ever since!

Over the years, I have learned how our oral health is linked to our systemic health. It is important to not only help patients maintain proper oral hygiene but also educate them on how it can potentially help in their overall health. I have also enjoyed getting to know my patients over the years and building relationships with my coworkers.

When I am not working, I enjoy being outdoors, traveling, baking, reading, playing piano and spending time with my family.


Registered Dental Hygienist

I am originally from Jefferson City, MO, but have lived in Columbia since 2008.

As someone who been through extensive dental work over the years, I have seen my fair share of dental offices. Through my experience as a patient I have learned the importance of a confident and comforting dental staff which is why getting to know my patients and building a rapport with them is the best part of my job. The relationship built with my patients allows me to provide quality care and the patient to communicate comfortably with their oral health needs.

When not at the office I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. We like to go on bike rides, walks with our dogs, and to the Lake of the Ozarks.


Registered Dental Hygienist

I am from Columbia and graduated from Hickman High School.

I enjoy getting to know my patients and establishing rapport so that they feel comfortable and at ease. I also enjoy educating them on new and different ways to take care of their oral health. I especially love when they tell me how good their teeth feel when they leave or when they learn something new.

In my free time, I love Cardinals baseball, playing softball, attending concerts and festivals, and doing anything outdoors with my dog. Running, biking, hiking, kayaking, camping, Logboat, Burr Oak and Cooper’s Landing are how I relax and have fun.


Certified Dental Assistant

I am originally from Moberly, MO, but have been in Columbia since 2003.

I enjoy visiting with the patients, whether it’s meeting them for the first time or just catching up on their lives. I also enjoy seeing my coworkers every day. They are like a second family!

I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my two young daughters. They keep me busy with their sports and other activities.


Certified Dental Assistant

I am from Richland, MO, a small town close to the Lake of the Ozarks.

I enjoy making connections with our patients and helping them transform their smiles into something that they are proud of. I also enjoy laughing with my fellow coworkers and having a great time at work.

In my free time, I like to read and spend time with my son and get together with my work family outside of the office.


Office Manager

I have always lived in Columbia.

I love interacting with and getting to know our patients. It’s also very rewarding when you have a patient who might initially be fearful of or not enjoy coming to the dentist express what a great experience that they’ve had and that we made them feel very welcome.

I enjoy spending time with my family, weekends at the Lake and camping.
