I grew up in Mandeville, LA and attended Louisiana State University for my undergraduate degree. It was during college that I discovered my love for pediatric dentistry while working as a dental assistant at a local pediatric dentist office. After college, I attended LSU School of Dentistry in New Orleans, where my passion for working with children only grew stronger.
I completed a two-year residency in pediatric dentistry at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL where I served as chief resident during my second year. I received training in anesthesia, treatment of medically and physically compromised patients, orthodontics, and the growth and development of children.
Following residency, I worked in private practice in Baton Rouge, LA for over two years before making the decision to move to this area to be close to family. I am so excited to join the Malbis Parkway Pediatric Dentistry family!
I am a Board-Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, as well as the American Dental Association and the Southeastern Society of Pediatric Dentistry.
Outside the Office
Outside of dentistry, I enjoy traveling, cheering on the LSU Tigers and New Orleans Saints, going to the beach, and spending time with my family and our golden retriever, Cooper.
