After 10 years in New England, my family wanted to trade in the harsh winters for the Florida sunshine. I began my college courses at Manatee Community College before transferring to Florida State College at Jacksonville where I completed my Associate’s in Arts. I then moved back to Venice and started the dental hygiene program in Bradenton at State College of Florida. I graduated in 2016 and was awarded Hu Friedy’s Golden Scaler Award and the Academic Achievement Award for maintaining a 4.0 GPA throughout the program. I decided to further my education at St Petersburg College and graduated in 2018, with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. I am a mother to a beautiful little girl and a pup named Bella. When I am not in the office you can find me soaking up some vitamin D on my paddle board or roller skating the legacy trail!

I moved to Sarasota nine years ago. I joined Integrated Dental in 2017 as clinical support and oversaw marketing outreach for our practice. I’m grateful to join an enthusiastic team that utilizes our individual talents, creating a fantastic place to work and an ability to provide great services. I come with over 25 years of experience as an assistant in Orthodontics, a treatment coordinator, and a billing tech in a large corporate law firm.
I earned my BSBM in 2010, have practiced traditional Taekwondo for over 20 years, and am currently ranked 5th Degree Black Belt with the Choong Sil Tkd Federation. I operated a small school for three years but recently closed it to return to my Equestrian hobby of Hunter Jumper riding. I love working with our patients to give them an insightful and simplified dental experience.
