I grew up in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, where my father was an oral surgeon. I started out cleaning instruments and assisting in my father’s oral surgery office and, as a result, was motivated to attend dental school and to go on to an orthodontic residency. My two sisters and I all followed in our father’s footsteps and went to Temple Dental School; I went on to do an orthodontic residency and my sisters went on to do pediatric dentistry residencies.
I have lived in Haddonfield, New Jersey for the past 14 years with my husband, our three active boys, and our 15-year-old beagle.
When I am not working I can usually be found volunteering at my children’s schools, participating at a variety of community events, or cheering on my kids at the sports fields and in the pool. I also enjoy spending time at the gym, hanging out with friends, and traveling the world with my family. I work hard to balance my personal and professional life. As a working mom, I am very sensitive to the needs and constraints of working parents and I constantly strive to cater to the needs of busy families.
