about me

I have been practicing dentistry since 2017 and have found my true passion in orthodontics after working as a general dentist for a few years. In my free time, I love running and hiking in nature and learning new dance moves.

Favorites

My favorite dessert is tiramisu

and my favorite sing-along songs for long car rides are 2000s pop and EDM.
