About Me
I am a dentist at Jireh Dental Care. At just 17 I decided to move to Nicaragua to learn about my heritage and attend grad school abroad. I moved to Central America not knowing any Spanish or knowing anyone but I quickly felt at home and adapted to the initial culture shock.

I found out that Nicaragua was no longer that war torn country of the 80’s but a savagely beautiful haven to live in with its green over taken streets, with amazingly fragile froth of the beach waves and its very wide range of eclectic humans bustling around.

I am now 30 years old and have a beautiful family that I started here in Nicaragua, I met the love of my life that’s also an expat from Denmark and now we have two amazing daughters and a sweet black lab.

In my dental practice I pride myself in providing top-notch dental health care and customer service. We maintain the OSHA standards for biosecurity and we bring forth the human aspect of health care that isn’t custom in Nicaragua.
