My life’s goal is to be an instrument that enables others to have a happy life by preventing and solving their dental maladies.” Read below her thanks to P&R Dental Strategies for the scholarship.

This scholarship will support my efforts in being a leader who is engaged with the outside world through community service, advocacy, and professional development. Ultimately, this scholarship will assist me in doing what I love.
