Practicing dentistry has always been a dream of mine. I became interested in the field because my pediatric dentist always made my appointments enjoyable! From an early age, I knew I wanted to help people in some way when I was older. Dentistry is the perfect field for this, because it provides me the ability to positively affect people’s lives every single day.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Eastern Kentucky University with a BS in biology, while playing collegiate volleyball. I then attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine and graduated four years later. After graduation, I completed a general practice residency at the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center in Cleveland. I was honored to work at the VA, gain experience in all fields of dentistry, and to serve our veteran population. In addition, I am a member of the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association, and the Greater Cleveland Dental Society.
When I’m not practicing dentistry, I enjoy cheering on all of Cleveland’s sports teams, any outdoor activity, and spending time with my husband and our French Bulldog puppy. After being away at school for many years, it is exciting to come back and practice dentistry in my hometown. I loved growing up in Solon because it is such an amazing community. I am looking forward to the chance of becoming your dentist at this great office!
