My undergraduate career taught me indispensable values enshrined in the Rule of St. Benedict providing a living legacy and an example to follow. The Rule of St. Benedict and the values it embodies influenced me in such a profound way that I aim for those values–such as listening, servant leadership, hospitality, respect, moderation, balance, prayer, and solid work ethic–to shine through in my daily life. With inner strength, compassion, and openness to any situation I wish to leave a legacy as a genuine well-rounded servant leader who truly cares for others. I strive to make this legacy a central role in my dental practice. Don’t underestimate the power of getting your undergraduate degree. Attending a liberal arts school has helped me develop as an individual and shape me into a more well-rounded person. Liberal arts schools aim to impart broad general knowledge and develop general intellectual capacities opposed to a vocational, technical curriculum.

My life philosophy is to look at every situation with a positive approach and to know that there is no situation where I am not in control of my attitude. This philosophy is precisely what creates quality in my life because it allows me to make the most of every blessing and hardship I have experienced. “If you’re not having a good time, it’s your own fault,” as harsh as that sounds I believe it’s true. If you’re uncomfortable with a situation it’s up to you to make a change. It’s not always easy, but you’re the only one who can make yourself happy. Friends and family have always commented on my inner strength and ability to approach any situation with a positive attitude. Whether I have an important exam, a long day of clinic, errands to run, or a long paper to write, I remind myself that everything happens for a reason. Complaining doesn’t get you anywhere. I believe that there is an important lesson to be learned with every hardship and blessing given to us. Quality is prevalent within my life because of my personality and commitment to having a positive attitude. I always remember the importance of companionship and aspire to be remembered as woman with a smile on her face!
