Registered Dental Hygienist

I was born in Germany, while my father was in military service, and grew up here in Lincoln, graduating in 1988 from Pius X High School. I attended the University of Nebraska to complete pre-requisite requirements before attending the UNMC College of Dentistry and graduated with a degree in Dental Hygiene in 1994.

I have worked at Optimal Dental since 1994, and truly love this practice.  During the many years I have worked as a Dental Hygienist, I have had opportunities to specialize in areas I enjoy, gaining valuable experience I offer to all of my patients.  Early in my career I worked in a pediatric dental practice where I developed a love for working with kids of all ages.  I currently specialize in a periodontal office as well.

I am also a registered licensed yoga instructor.

Kristian and I married in 1992, and have a family of five children we adore; Ashley, Ehlee, William, Maire and Maura.  We also have a pug, 2 cats and a rabbit.
