I am so lucky to be able to go to work day every day and do something that I love. There is nothing more satisfying than to see my patients’ personalities and confidence transform as they progress through treatment. Each day, I focus on providing my patients with kind, compassionate, and high-quality orthodontic care. It is so exciting to combine art, technology, and science to help patients achieve all their smile goals.
As a former patient of this practice, I know first-hand what an amazing group of people work here. My team is friendly, welcoming, and takes the time to explain treatment details to patients so they feel comfortable and at ease.

Outside the Office
I feel so fortunate to be able to practice orthodontics in my hometown. The people in this area are like no other! Many of my evenings involve attending dental and civic meetings. However, I remain involved in the community because I enjoy making a difference in the lives of others and I believe the future of Stark County is bright! Whenever I do have free time, I love to spend it with family and friends.
My husband Aaron and I have a dog named Ralphie, who keeps us on our toes! We also play on recreational sports teams and try to meet up with friends to go biking as often as we can.
