I grew up in Lincoln, NE, and graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2005. I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, College of Dentistry, in 2010. I completed a general practice residency at Peninsula Hospital in Queens, New York in 2011, and then a pediatric dental residency at Children’s Memorial Hospital of Northwestern University in Chicago in 2013. I am a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and American Dental Association. I enjoy playing tennis and golf, snowboarding, traveling to new places with my fiancé Chris, and spending time outside with my dogs, Oliver and Finn.
