What made you decide you wanted to be a dentist? I've always been interested in Health Sciences. In high school, I shadowed different Health Professionals and enjoyed the time I spent shadowing my dentist. The first day, she performed a routine extraction. I was intrigued by the many facets of dentistry and the thought of owning my own practice.

Hobbies: Hiking, biking, camping, reading.

Favorite place to eat in SLC: I prefer eating at home, but for brunch + lemonade - Finn's Cafe.

Where can you find me outside of school? Lately, riding (and crashing) my mountain bike.

Interesting fact about me: Interesting, maybe not, but I have some fun party tricks - I can cross one eye, touch my tongue to my nose and wiggle my ears.

What do you see yourself doing in five yearsOwning and running a successful dental practice in Arizona with my husband and maaayybeee some babieeees (in addition to our fur babies).

What Pandora station do you listen to while studying? Can't say I've been studying much lately, but my music interests are broad. Jazz, country, alternative, indie, rock, I dig it (almost) all. 

Favorite dental procedure? Routine extractions! 

Favorite motivational quote: "We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret." -John Roh
