Upon graduating from undergrad at Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Sciences in Economics I came to the University of Michigan for my Doctor of Dental Surgery. Following my four years in Ann Arbor I traveled to the University of Colorado for my residency in Orthodontics and Master of Science in Dentistry. Finishing my dental degrees in Denver and with a desire to stay in Colorado to hike and enjoy the scenery I founded a sole practitioner orthodontic office, Smiling Springs Orthodontics, located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Being a business owner for 5 years, growing an office, managing employees, choosing healthcare plans, marketing, accounting was all very exciting. Eventually I decided to move on from Colorado and move back to my home of Arizona, I sold my business and started thinking what I wanted to do next. With my lifelong pursuit of knowledge, the changing world of dentistry, and my heavy interest in business I was ecstatic to find my way back to University of Michigan to pursue an MBA. Go Blue!
