My work is more fulfilling than I could have ever imagined. The transformation of smiles and self-confidence as a result of orthodontic treatment reminds me every day of the positive impact my team has on the lives of others. I can’t imagine a more rewarding profession; I love what I do!
It took a while, and quite of bit of training, to get to where I am today. I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in biology from Dickinson College where I was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa society. I received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. After my four years in Philadelphia, I moved to Boston to attend the Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Harvard School of Dental Medicine general practice residency. Surviving only one New England winter, I moved to New York and completed my orthodontic residency as chief resident at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
I am originally from Northwestern Pennsylvania. My love for the outdoors and desire for a more temperate climate led me to Northern Virginia. I spend my free time running, hiking, biking, reading, and enjoying good food with family and friends.
