After getting braces at the age of 12, I was intrigued by all the dental instruments that orthodontists worked with. I began pursuing dentistry and shadowing dentists when I was 16. To me, this profession is all-encompassing. I love working with intricate details and surrounding myself with people. My favorite thing about being a dentist is the critical thinking involved in treatment planning. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, traveling, scrapbooking, and baking.
