Meet Our Team
I am an Illinois native who relocated to Tampa to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a Dental Hygienist and also to enjoy the amazing weather (of course). I am a four time Division 1 Track and Field All-American and also had the opportunity to compete for the USA National Bobsled team in the winter of 2016.
After graduating college with my degree in Dental Hygiene I continued to pursue my passion for track and field before setting into the work routine. The highlight of my career was qualifying for the 2016 Summer Olympic trials after having little to no preparation due to the winter and spring being devoted to bobsledding. Although I didn’t advance to the Olympic Games, it was an amazing experience and achievement.
Practicing hygiene again is a rewarding experience. I feel blessed to be able to share it with Dr. Schroeder and our amazing team.
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, coaching, and being involved in any kind of sporting event or physical activity.

Registered Dental Hygienist, 2006
I am a Florida native and love the sun. The other sunshine in my life is my awesome daughter! My interests include running, reading, going to the beach, watching classic films, gardening, discovering new restaurants, and dancing.
When it comes to caring for your dental needs my approach is to be gentle, thorough, and educating. I treat my clients as a whole person, not just a set of teeth because dental health is important for the whole body health & well-being. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve the best smile possible.
