I was raised on a farm right here in Williamson County! I attended Grassland Middle School and then Franklin High School. I received my undergraduate degree from Middle Tennessee State University with a major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I graduated from MTSU Magna Cum Laude and began to focus on my career in dentistry. I pursued my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University Of Tennessee College Of Dentistry. While in dental school, I was selected as the recipient of the Thomas P. Hinman Research Symposium Award. I hold memberships with the American Dental Association, Tennessee Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry.
My husband Charles and I live here in Franklin with our two children, Nora Kate and Charles Tillman. My favorite hobbies include riding and caring for our horses, gardening and cooking. We attend Rolling Hills Community Church in Franklin. I am so honored to serve the community where I grew up and to raise my children here in Williamson County!
I grew up in Mobile, Alabama with all of my family nearby. I loved growing up on the gulf coast and enjoying all the amenities that go along with coastal living — great seafood, beaches close by, and Mardi Gras. Both my mom and grandfather were dentists, so I have been exposed to this profession since I was a baby. I always knew I wanted to pursue something in the medical field and headed off to Auburn University for my undergraduate studies. At Auburn, I majored in Biomedical Sciences and minored in Spanish, while staying heavily involved in the College of Sciences and Mathematics, a social sorority, and the Honors College. I then attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry, where I graduated in the top of the class. I was the sole recipient of the Oral Pathology and Medicine award. I am a member of the American Dental Association, the Tennessee Dental Association, the Nashville Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
I am happily married to my husband of 9 years, Trey, and we are thankful to call Nashville our home, even though we are both originally from other states. We attend Belmont Church where Trey is one of the worship leaders. We have been blessed with our daughter, Mallie, and our son, Davis, who both keep us on our toes. Our hearts and hands are joyfully full for now with two littles being less than 23 months apart! My passions besides dentistry include mission work, Revive (a ministry focusing on youth and young adult discipleship), Auburn football, and anything related to being on the water. I can't wait to get to know you and meet your dental needs!
