Meet Our Team Chapel Hill Dentist Office



I was born and raised in Durham, NC. I decided I wanted to become a Dental Hygienist at the young age of 12! I followed my dreams of attending UNC, graduating in 2005. I love building relationships with patients, while helping them achieve and maintain excellent oral health.

In my free time, I enjoy playing competitive disc golf, spending time with family and friends, and relaxing by the beach with a good book.

I recently relocated from Buffalo to North Carolina to be closer to my family. My favorite part of being a hygienist over the past 16 years, is getting to know my patients. In my free time I love to visit with my grandchildren, travel with my husband, and walk my dog.


Originally from Pittsboro, NC. Now living in Hillsborough with my husband and four dogs. Yes, four dogs. Two yorkiepoos, a labrador retriever, and golden doodle. It’s their world and we’re just living in it. I graduated from Guilford Technical Community College with a degree in Dental Hygiene. I absolutely love being a hygienist and getting to know each one of my patients. Outside of work, I enjoy taking classes at Orangetheory Fitness, trying new restaurants, and going to Duke basketball games at Cameron Indoor.

My husband and I are originally from the Chicago area. We moved to North Carolina 4 years ago. I have worked in the dental field for over 16 years, as an office manager as well as a patient care coordinator. What I love most about dentistry is the time I spend with patients, helping them throughout their treatment.

When not at work, my husband and I love to hike, kayak, travel and spend time with friends. We have two grown sons and an awesome yellow lab that loves to hike with us!


I’ve been in dentistry for over 17 years. I graduated from Wake Technical College, with a degree in dental assisting. I have been married to my husband Jonathon for 13 years. We have an 11-year-old son and a 5 year old daughter (who keep us very busy).

In my free time I enjoy weekend trips to the beach, gardening, and Pinterest projects.


I grew up in Orange County and I have been in dentistry for 5 years. When I’m not working, I enjoy fishing and spending time with my husband and our four children.

I’ve known that I wanted to be in the dental field since middle school, and building relationships is one of the best parts of my job! I’ve been a dental assistant to a wide variety of procedures, from general dentistry to specialty treatment, and I recently transitioned to the front desk.

I look forward to helping you through your journey to oral health!
A Georgia native, I relocated to North Carolina 5 years ago. In my spare time, I enjoy being active with my son, traveling, yoga and spending time with my family and friends.
