I have always loved being around children of all ages. I was drawn to pediatric care while I was volunteering for the Give Kids A Smile program offered through the University of Nebraska Medical Center Dental School. We provided free dental screenings, treatment and education to underserved children in rural areas of Nebraska. Not only did I enjoy treating children, I was able to take part in educational activities to increase their awareness of oral health and discuss the importance of taking care of their teeth at a young age. I also was fortunate to have the experience to provide dental services to children in need on a mission trip to Honduras during my residency training. I am a big proponent of preventative dentistry and committed to improving the health of children by educating families on the importance of oral health care. I love showing children that dentistry could be fun and also provide a positive experience and trust that they can take with them forever.
I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jay and my son, Niam. I also enjoy being outdoors, reading, music and traveling. My husband is also in the medical field and is a practicing surgeon in the greater Fort Worth area.
Education and biography
I am grateful beyond words to be surrounded inspiration daily ... from the kids that come into the clinic with their amazing families, to the brilliant ladies I get to work with at Cook Children's Renaissance, to my three sons who inspire me to step outside the box and have adventures and depend on God daily, to my sweet daughter-in-law who shows me what it looks like to walk in faith, to my twin daughters who are always exciting and resilient, not the least bit boring, and to my amazing husband who is my best cheerleader, coach, mentor, and friend. He shows me daily the courageous example of generosity.
