I’m so excited to be joining the team of Ries and Robinson Orthodontics. I’m originally from Columbia, Missouri and am happy to have the chance to do what I love in my hometown. I completed my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 2014. I then moved to Columbus, Ohio where I received my masters degree and orthodontic certificate from The Ohio State University. Since completing residency in 2018, I’ve worked in private practice at an office in Columbus, Ohio.

What I love about Orthodontics is that we get the chance to really know the patient and their families. It’s such a joy to watch patients grow and change right in front of your eyes. Every smile that I treat is different and I love the challenge of working with patients to give them their best smile. It’s exciting for me to know that these smiles will be the ones seen at birthday parties, graduations, weddings, and many more special occasions!

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband Kevin and our spoiled border collie Luka. I’m a die hard for live music, Lagree, and a good audiobook. Our favorite hobby is without a doubt hitting the slopes during ski season.
