What made you decide you wanted to be a dentist? I was originally a Fine Arts Jewelry major while double majoring in Psychology. I was happy in both fields but wanted a way to combine my two passions. During a visit to my orthodontist I realized that as a dentist I would be able to use my artistic dexterity and connect with people while improving their health and overall well-being.

Hobbies: Hiking, snowboarding, cooking, and crafting.

Interesting fact about me: I summited Africa’s highest point, Mt. Kilimanjaro 19,340 feet, for my dad’s 60th birthday!

What is your favorite ASDA event? So far I really enjoyed the Cuspid Cup! It was fun to have all the classes competing and enjoying the outdoors together! Just so everyone knows, class of 2020 is taking home that cuspid trophy next year!!

Where can you find me outside of school? Usually catching up with friends and my sleep.

What do you see yourself doing in five years? Hopefully settling into an apprenticeship in a cute beach town and finally out of cold weather forever!

Favorite place to eat in SLC? Wasatch Brewery

What Pandora station do you have on while drilling and filling in sim lab? Gramatik or Flume

Favorite place you have explored in Utah: I visited Zion as soon as I moved here and loved every part of the park. My favorite hike was to the top of Angels Landing. I loved the breathtaking views and the adrenaline rush it gave me.
