I grew up in Pender, Nebraska with two siblings. I attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2006. I was awarded the Nebraska Dental Hygienists Association student scholarship and graduated from the dental hygiene program at Central Community College in Hastings in 2010. I am a member of the Nebraska Dental Hygienists Association as well as the American Dental Hygienists Association. My husband Josh and I welcomed our son, Jax, into the world in August 2013. We enjoy watching him change and grow every day. We enjoy spending time with friends and family and attending sporting events.
