I grew up in the greater Philadelphia area and headed to the Midwest when my family moved during high school. I earned my undergraduate degree from Aquinas College, a liberal arts college in Michigan offering great diversity and a well rounded education. I received my Bachelor of Science in Dentistry and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees from the University of Illinois in 1999. I worked as an associate before going out on my own in 2003, wanting to provide an intimate practice that supports patients in an urban setting. For seven years I worked part time at the Northwestern Dental Center, located in Northwestern Hospital. My time at Northwestern has given me a deep understanding of the link between dental and medical health. In addition to my downtown Chicago practice I am excited to offer a compassionate experience to patients and their families and friends at Big City Dental. I am passionate about my philosophy that all the care I extend is tailored and specialized to each individual patient. On a more personal note… Running is one of my greatest passions outside of the office. I have completed eight marathons so far, with more to come. I am an avid Yogini, and I love being outside enjoying sports. I also am an avid reader, traveler, cook and movie buff.
