She received her Bachelor’s in Biology with a concentration in pre-professional sciences.
In 2018, Dr. Foster earned her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Nova Southeastern University where she graduated at the top of her class. During her time in dental school, she became involved with political advocacy for the profession, held multiple leadership positions and was inducted into OKU. Dr. Foster then continued her studies at St. Louis University, receiving her Master’s degree and certificate in the specialty of Orthodontics.
Dr. Foster recently moved to NC with her husband, Dr. Christopher Naglieri, who is a current endodontic resident at UNC. In her free time, she enjoys snuggling with her dog, Delilah, and two cats, Mymy and Mango. She also enjoys attending Orangetheroy Fitness classes, baking, and watching sports (Go Blues!).
