Life & Hobbies

“My small-town Wisconsin education prepared me well for the trials and tribulations of dental school in Detroit, Michigan. The sunny skies of Florida beckoned me after graduation and I've never looked back!

Outside of work I take every opportunity to enjoy the wonderful Florida sunshine! My favorite outdoor activities include backyard grilling and barbecue, classic car shows, boating, and sightseeing. I also enjoy a variety of sports such as hockey, golf, and football. I also try to see my northern friends and family as much as possible.”
