Life & Hobbies
I grew up in a small town in Kentucky and remain very close with my two older brothers and sisters. I absolutely adore my two rambunctious nephews and my niece, the little princess. I love traveling and have been fortunate to visit Mexico, Costa Rica, Spain, France, Italy, Ireland, India, Thailand, Morocco, and the Philippines. I also enjoy just about any genre of literature, but especially historical fiction, fantasy, and non-fiction memoirs.

"My fondest childhood memories are of trips to my grandmother's house. But, my grandmother's house was somewhat unusual. Her small, one bedroom apartment was located in the poverty-stricken city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and my visits included interacting with smiling people who considered my grandmother a friend and a blessing. All these smiles have stayed with me to this day. Each smile was full of hope and life, but the dentition did not match the spirit.
Severe dental decay and massive tooth loss were prevalent among the people of Port-au-Prince. Since first performing small acts of sharing as a child and seeing so many genuine but marred smiles on those trips to my grandmother's house, I have had a burning desire to serve others. My mission as a dentist is about providing others what so many of us take for granted – the ability to eat solid foods, to live without constant pain, and to smile without embarrassment. Every person on this earth deserves these things, whether they are in Haiti, Tennessee, or anywhere else, and I want to be able to provide them to as many people as possible."

Life & Hobbies
Outside of the spectacular world of dentistry, I love to live life to the fullest. I have a 1-year-old black lab puppy named Batman and he is the love of my life. We love to go on runs and watch reality tv together. I enjoy exercising as much as I can and I hope to be able to run a marathon within the next year (wish me luck)! I love to eat amazing food! Lastly, traveling is my ultimate favorite pastime. My favorite vacation spot is Cancun, Mexico and I visit it every year with my family. My family is my life and I do my best to see them as much as possible.
