I teach didactic and clinical courses in Dental Hygiene. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene at the University of Michigan, and Master of Science in Dental Hygiene Education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am a member of the American Dental Hygienist Association and Michigan Dental Hygienist Association. I am also a recipient of the 2022 ADEA/Crest-Oral B Scholarship for Dental Hygiene Students Pursuing Academic Careers and received first place in the Denstply Sirona/ADHA Graduate Student Research competition at the 2022 national ADHA conference. I have a passion for educating future generations of dental hygienists that provide skilled, compassionate care to their patients and communities and who are advocates for the advancement of oral healthcare and the profession of dental hygiene.
