Practicing orthodontics is living a dream; I am thankful every day that I am able to practice in a profession that I am so passionate about. Orthodontics provides me the opportunity to work with people of all ages, develop long-lasting relationships, and have a positive effect on the lives of others. It seems fitting that my job puts a smile on my face, when it is focused on establishing the smiles of others.
Education and Experience
One of my mentors growing up was my family dentist, and my interest in oral health was sparked at a young age. After graduating high school, I attended Dalhousie University, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, for both my Bachelor of Science (2006) and Doctor of Dental Surgery (2010) Degrees. After completing my dental degree, I did a one-year General Practice Residency at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario. Following which, I moved to Edmonton, Alberta, to complete a three-year Master of Science in Orthodontics at the University of Alberta. Upon completion of my degree, my husband and I moved back to my home town of Grand Falls-Windsor to open Central Orthodontics, central Newfoundland's first orthodontic specialty practice.

Outside the Office
I am very happily married to my husband Andrew, and we have two handsome and fun-filled boys, Harrison and Graham. We also have a Golden Retreiver named Kevin. When I’m not creating beautiful smiles in the office, I enjoy traveling, hiking, running, camping and spending time with friends and family.
