Having completed my MBA at the University of Michigan, I am now the owner of a dental office in Phoenix, Arizona. In addition to my dental practice, I also do healthcare consulting. My journey began with a Bachelor of Sciences in Economics from Arizona State University, followed by a Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Michigan. After completing my dental degree, I pursued a residency in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics and Master of Science in Dentistry at the University of Colorado. After graduating and having spent three years in Denver I then founded Smiling Springs Orthodontics, a sole practitioner orthodontic office in Colorado Springs. I spent 5 years growing the business, managing employees, and making important decisions in healthcare, marketing, and accounting. However, my love for Arizona brought me back home, and I sold my business to pursue further education. With a passion for learning and a keen interest in the business side of dentistry, I returned to the University of Michigan for my MBA. Go Blue!
