As a pediatric dentist, I have the honor of interacting with the youth of the future. I see myself as someone that can have a positive impact on the next generation, by providing a comfortable, fun, and educational experience for both the child and their parents. I am someone that wants to be at the top of my field and am constantly striving to improve my knowledge so that my patients can benefit from having the best healthcare experience possible.

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE
I am passionate about music, and it was a key decision in my moving to Austin, the live music capital of the world! I will be looking to continue my guitar lessons, and the steel drums in the future. I am an avid outdoorsman, and love to hike, kayak, and be out in nature. My first love was soccer, and will be looking forward to checking out some Austin FC soccer games as well. Outside of these activities, I hope to maintain an active lifestyle by biking, running, and working out.
