I am originally from Twin Falls, Idaho. I moved to Utah after graduating from college. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene from Idaho State University. My husband Josh and I enjoy living in Salt Lake City.
Why did you choose dentistry?
I chose to be a dental hygienist when I was just 12 years old. I was assigned to do a report on a professional job for school. I chose to interview a dental hygienist because I always enjoyed going to the dentist as a child and loved my dental team.
I was intrigued by their office, the tools they used, and the work that they did. It all seemed very exciting. After my report, I felt dentistry calling, and my mind was made up. I love the detailed work and the act of starting and completing a task.
What is the best part of your job?
Helping people rediscover their beautiful smiles, and seeing it change their lives.
What do you do outside the office?
My husband and I enjoy spending time together at the movies, trying new restaurants, and going to the theater. We also love traveling, going to concerts of our favorite bands, and, of course, watching Netflix.
Fun Fact: The theme song for my life would be “I Lived” by OneRepublic.
