    Sweet Carrot.
  • What is your favorite (family or otherwise) activity in Columbus?
    Golfing has always been something I’ve enjoyed. Earlier this year, me and my roommates went to TopGolf and I loved it! So much fun!!
  • Favorite thing about dentistry?
    I love how everyone’s smile is different and unique. No two smiles are exactly alike, so it’s a new challenge with every patient who walks though the door.
  • How did you come to work at Grandview Dental Care?
    I was in need of observation hours for my dental school application last summer. But rather than just observing the procedures, I was interested in learning all the aspects of the dental field: from the clinics to the office work and business side of things. Grandview Dental Care took me on as an unpaid intern where I was able to observe the dentists as they worked and also see first-hand how the business team runs things. And at the end of the summer, Grandview Dental Care decided to keep me on as a paid employee.
  • Where do you hope to travel to one day and why?
    I would like to travel to Alaska or anywhere I can see the Northern Lights.
  • What is the one gadget or piece of technology you can’t live without? And why?
    Definitely would not be able to function without my TV. If I wasn’t able to binge my tv shows or watch movies I think it would quite literally be the death of me.
  • What’s the best part about your job or working at Grandview Dental Care?
    The best part about my job is all of the information I’ve been able to absorb.
  • Why did you decide on a career in dentistry?
    The field has always been in the back of my mind, but what really solidified it for me was when I fell and chipped my front teeth my senior year in high school. I remember feeling embarrassed about my smile and not wanting to go out or smile in public. I also remember my dentist seeing me right away and fixing not only my teeth, but my broken self-esteem as well. That day I decided I was going to major in Biology at Ohio State and pursue a career as a dentist so that one day I could help people in the same way that my dentist helped me.
  • What’s your favorite food? Or your favorite Meal?
    I’m a sucker for literally anything with peanut butter in it.
  • What is something that makes you smile?
    Visiting and talking with my grandparents has always put the biggest smile on my face.
  • Tell me about your pet(s)
    I have one dog named Sophie. She is an 8 year old malti-poo who has recently gone blind. And although I shouldn’t, I can’t help but laugh every time she runs into something.
