I was born and raised in San Diego, but my journey in the dental industry started three years ago when I moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. I discovered my passion for helping patients understand the importance of dental hygiene and giving them the best experience during their visits. I am satisfied when patients leave with the knowledge they need to feel confident about their smiles.

When I am not in the office, I love to spend time with my parents, travel to new places, and dance.
