I was born and raised in Pueblo Colorado and have been in the dental field since 2012. I have enjoyed learning all aspects of dentistry and love working closely with patients to achieve their dental goals. My job presents differently every single day on a patient-to-patient basis. What stays the same, though, is how I strive to make patients feel comfortable the moment they enter the office to the moment they leave. If you can’t find me at the office, you can find me at home staying low key with my husband and beloved French bulldog.
