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.
During the 16 years I have worked as a dental hygienist, I have had opportunities to specialize in areas I enjoy. I have a passion for pediatric dentistry that I was able to practice early in my career and since that time have become very interested in the specialty of periodontics. During the years I have worked for Drs. Ganser and Bailey, I have also worked for a periodontal practice where I gain valuable experience to offer all my patients.
Kristian and I have been married for 18 years and have a family of five children we adore; Ashley, Ehlee, William, Maire and Maura.
My personal interests are yoga, music, dance and I dream of travel someday.
