I chose dental hygiene because I have always been fascinated with teeth. I love working with people as well as enjoy learning and teaching the importance of good oral health. I have worked with Dr. Batterton since March 2007, as a hygienist since July 2008.

I graduated from Big Walnut High School in 2004 and from The Ohio State University with a bachelors in dental hygiene in 2008. I grew up on the West side of Columbus in Valleyview until 1997 and then lived in Center Village from 1997 to 2007. I then lived in Delaware for 8 years before moving to Ostrander.

When I am not working I enjoy spending time with family/friends, shopping, going to the pool in the summer, cookouts/campfires, and going on cruises. I have been married since August 2008. We have two daughters: Layla was born September 2011 and Alivia was born June 2015. We also have a beagle named Scarlet. They keep us very busy!
