I was born and raised in Auburn, Alabama. I chose to stay in my hometown to attend Auburn University where I got my Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences. I attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry from 2008-2012. The highlight of each of the first three years was the spring break dental mission trip where I had my first experiences treating patients with great dental needs and a true lack of access to care. These trips also provided a unique opportunity to work on children as I realized how much I loved the joys and challenges of treating young patients.
I completed a two-year pediatric dental residency program at the Medical University of South Carolina where I learned how to provide the best care possible to both children and patients with special needs. Following residency, I moved to Columbia, South Carolina, where I worked for a large family run pediatric dental practice.
During that time, my husband and I had two children, Henry and Lucy, who have kept us very busy. I look forward to bringing the skills I have gained to the children and special needs patients of Alabama.
