As a native of Springfield, I am committed to providing superior orthodontic care to my community in a friendly and technology-forward environment. I think of orthodontics as a unique combination of art and science, which makes perfect sense as my mom is an artist and my dad is a surgeon. But my passion for the speciality really comes from the transformations patients experience during treatment and the resulting impact on their lives.
Outside of the office, my husband Derek and I spend time with my extended family in Springfield and our three dogs, Hank, Carlie and Poppy. We also enjoy traveling, attending sports events, and spending summers at Table Rock Lake.
