I was born in Calgary, but grew up in Saskatchewan prior to my family's move to Victoria when I was in high school. As a student, I was always proficient in tasks that allowed me to work with my hands, while challenging me intellectually. It wasn’t until my experience with braces that I began to consider the profession of dentistry. I admired the skill and knowledge that my dentist demonstrated while working, and appreciated the tangible outcome of his meticulous work. The care and dedication I received as a patient played an important role in my decision to become a dentist. Once my teeth were fixed I decided that I wanted to deliver the same level of care and expertise to my community by practicing family dentistry.
I attended the University of Victoria for undergraduate studies before moving on to complete my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the University of Saskatchewan. Upon graduation, I returned home to Victoria, to begin working in private practice.
Outside of work, I enjoy hiking with my partner, Chelsea, and our Golden Retriever, Payton. Like all good Canadians, I spend as much time snowboarding, fishing, golfing and playing hockey (with a mouth guard, of course) as I can.
I am delighted to be a part of Colwood Dental Group and look forward to serving my patients – children, adults, and seniors alike – with exceptional, honest care and dedication.
