Athletics has taught me a lot of important lessons: when to lead, when to follow, how to celebrate a win and how to bounce back from a loss. But most importantly it taught me what it feels like to be passionate about something. As a four-year starter for the Bowdoin College women’s lacrosse team I was honored as the first person in the program’s history to be unanimously voted as captain. Leading a group of my peers through the trials of mental and physical exertion required to make it to the Elite Eight tournament, I always knew when I walked on the field with my teammates that we had put heart and desire into every practice to be the very best for those sixty minutes of game time. With orthodontics the challenge is new, but the passion is the same.
While I left my athletic career behind in college, the team player mentality has followed me into my orthodontic career. I believe that creating beautiful and healthy smiles requires hard work and dedication not only on the part of the orthodontic team, but from our patients as well. By encouraging my patients to take an active role in their orthodontic treatment, whether its motivating them to maintain excellent oral hygiene while in braces or keeping up with their retainer wear, it allows them to take pride in knowing they helped create the beautiful end result.
A bit more about my background and education; I was born and raised in Albany, NY. Attending Bowdoin College I completed a bachelor’s degree in American Government and Legal Studies, and it was during a summer internship with a New York State senator that I spent time working with constituents at a local dental clinic, where I was first inspired to pursue a career in dentistry. In 2014 I completed my doctorate training at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and most recently completed my orthodontic training at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Since moving back to New England I have spent time enjoying my hobbies outside of lacrosse, such as skiing and hiking, and I even survived my first Reebok Spartan race!
