I grew up on Indian Lake, graduated from Vicksburg High School and the Kalamazoo Valley Community College's Dental Hygiene Program. I am married and have a daughter that lives and works in Colorado, and a son who is a student/athlete at Three Rivers High School. I also have 2 very spoiled beagle mix rescue dogs. I enjoy cycling, skiing, running, hiking, kayaking, and teaching aerobics. Professionally, I am passionate about promoting health and educating patients on the mouth/body connection to patients of all ages. My fun fact: One can actually kayak from Indian to the Gulf of Mexico!
