When not at Hawthorn Dental or volunteering for organized dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading mystery novels and biking.

Why did you decide on a career in dentistry?

I was a nurse before I became a dentist. I always knew that I wanted to work in the health professions helping people make their own lives better. As a dentist, I can take away pain and create smiles that improve a patient's health, self-esteem and confidence. What is better than that?
