I grew up in Orland Park and currently live in Hinsdale with my husband Ryan and our daughters Vivian and Svea. We love the small town feel of the community and surrounding areas so please make sure to say hello if you see me around town! In our free time we enjoy trying new restaurants, staying active on walks with our dog Stella, and spending quality time with family.
As the daughter of a dental hygienist, dentistry has always been in my life. My family stressed the importance of education so I focused on building a strong foundation for my future. I was always interested in healthcare and the profession of orthodontics is the best combination of health and esthetics. My love for orthodontics started in undergrad when I actually worked for Dr. Petty as clinical assistant. You could say he is a big reason why I am in orthodontics today. We always knew we would make a good team someday so I am especially excited to come full circle and stand next to him today not as a clinical assistant but as a fellow orthodontist!
I feel considerably blessed to be in a profession where I have the opportunity to help people gain confident, beautiful smiles. Orthodontics is my passion and I truly love what I do everyday. Having children has given me an entirely different view of my profession. I now see the importance of orthodontics through a mother’s eyes.
