In 2010 I graduated from University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. In addition to being an educator as a clinical instructor in the U-M Division of Dental Hygiene since 2018, I have continued working part-time as a clinician in private practice. My eight years working full-time in a periodontal practice provided me with a wealth of experience with non-surgical cases, pain control, and post-operative care. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with current students to enrich their clinical educational experience.
I also manage the marketing and recruitment efforts for the U-M Dental Hygiene Department as well as the social media page. These initiatives involve outreach events via zoom and in-person informational sessions at local colleges for prospective students. Social Media posts are also prepared to share highlights, events, and accomplishments of the students, faculty and program with the U-M DH Community.
I am also a member of American Dental Hygienist' Association (ADHA) and Michigan Dental Hygienists' Association (MDHA), and have been a delegate representing the South Central district for the past three years at the MDHA House of Delegates.
