Life & Hobbies

I am passionate about helping those in need and creating beautiful, healthy smiles. My goal is to provide gentle, comprehensive dental care. I volunteer at free dental clinics when I can and am always looking for new opportunities to serve the community.

After moving to Fort Lauderdale to earn my doctorate degree at Nova Southeastern University, I wanted to return home to be with my family and serve the community. In my free time, I enjoy embroidery and the attention of detail that it requires to create something beautiful. I also enjoy going to the beach, visiting local restaurants, and traveling with my husband.
