Interests & Hobbies:

I enjoy running with Tank (our dog), cooking/baking, and reading. I am an avid Green Bay Packers & Iowa Hawkeyes fan and enjoy spending time with friends and family.

About My Family:

I married in 2011 to Jake Wilke, teacher. Jake is from Elkader, IA and teaches at Postville High School in Postville, IA. We have a daughter, Charlotte, who turned two in June and are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our second child in December of 2017!

Why Did I Return to NE Iowa:

"Both Jake and I have such wonderful memories of growing up in Northeast Iowa, and I am so excited to be moving back to begin my dental practice. The small-town values and friendly atmosphere make this area a great place to live, work, and raise a family. I feel very fortunate to be able to join such a great practice, and I look forward to helping serve the dental needs of this community."
