Prior to attending dental school she went on mission trips to Jamaica, Uganda, and Kenya. She also volunteered locally at the Union Gospel mission dental clinic. During dental school she was able to volunteer in the Give Kids a Smile Day, The Special Olympics dental booth, and at Our Lady of Mercy Dental Clinic. Since graduating she has been able to work with International Smile Power to provide the residents of tent city with much needed dental care. The experiences of providing dental care at home and abroad are extremely different, yet both have strengthened her passion for providing high-quality care under varied circumstances.
