A Little About Me: I graduated from Concorde Career College in August 2012 and received my Dental Assisting Certificate. I am a true Portlander! Born and Raised in the Northwest. When I am not working I enjoy spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking and watching food network. YEP! I am a foodie! It is true and dear that I am blessed to live in the food-driven culture of Portland. I have two cats (who are basically my children) Sherlock-our part Maine Coon who has 23 toes in all (True Story) and Watson- our 7 month old rescue kitty we adopted from SW Washington Humane Society. I am excited to work in an office where I am able to combine my passion for dentistry with my love and excitement for working with kids!

I Love Dentistry Because: As a young child I loved going to see the dentist and have an obsession with teeth and brushing my teeth as well. My desire is to educate children about the importance of oral hygiene by showing and teaching them the skills they need to succeed in taking great care of their mouth. My goal is to get them excited about coming to the dentist. I love working with kids and being able to be my goofy self. Someday I would love to volunteer my time with Medical Teams International and help those who are affected by poverty, disaster and conflict throughout the world.

At Nelson Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics: I am a Clinical Pediatric Dental Assistant for Dr. Nelson and an Orthodontic Assistant for Dr. Miller. I enjoy working alongside both Doctors and together we have built a strong, driven, and
