My home and heart has always been in the Bay Area. I was born and raised in Hayward, and briefly moved away for 5 years to Southern California. I have been very fortunate to find a profession that I truly love. Being able to give others a smile they feel proud to show off if a very rewarding feeling. I have been fortunate to practice orthodontics in some amazing Orthodontic practices. I am super excited to join Dr. Brent Sexton’s and Dr. John Esterkyn’s team. I am eager to meet all the amazing providers and patients who trust us to create their beautiful smiles.

Outside of the office, I have three amazing, high-energy children who keep me on my toes, and current with all the latest dance moves the kids are doing these days. My favorite dance to date is the “Floss”- probably more for its name than the moves. As a family, we enjoy the simple pleasures of staying home to do family movie-nights or games nights and appreciate any opportunity we have to take family vacations and explore the world. I can often be found scouring Pinterest for new arts and crafts projects to get my hands on, or new ideas for the next sugar cookies to bake.
