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 two daughters, Charlotte who will be three in June and Gretchen who was born in October 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."
