"It’s an exciting time to be a part of cosmetic dentistry in San Diego. As a native San Diegan, I have seen the city change and grow into a more vibrant place to live and work. I am a proud alumna of San Diego State University and the University of California, San Francisco. My Patients are my second family… but being a mom of 10 year-old Triplets is crazy, fun, challenging & definitely keeps me on my toes! I also enjoy co-ed softball & beach volleyball, in which I can take advantage of our amazing SD weather."
