Dr. Thelen was born and raised in Portland. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Aquinas College in 2012 and attended the University of Detroit Mercy, earning her DDS in 2016, where she graduated in the top 10% of her class. She is a member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, and West Michigan District Dental Society, and has spent the last 6 years serving as a dentist in surrounding communities.
In her spare time Dr. Thelen enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, and playing sports, especially softball, basketball, and golf. And like Dr. Mike, she is a huge MSU fan and loves to cheer on the Spartans!
