Iowa American Student Dental Association

I’m a second year dental student, originally from Johnston, Iowa. I graduated from the University of Iowa in 2020 with a B.S. in biology. Aside from my role as a GPSG Delegate, I am also serving as IASDA Representative of the dental school class of 2024, IASDA Legislative Liaison, and I am President-Elect of the Gamma Gamma chapter of ΔΣΔ international dental fraternity here at the University of Iowa. I’m also interested in clinical research and use some of my free time to pursue student research projects within the college of dentistry. Currently I’m investigating the changes in the salivary microbiota that arise with Covid-19 infection. When I’m not thinking about school, I enjoy cooking, water skiing, playing pool at TCB downtown, and taking my dog, Louise, on walks around campus.
