Office Manager

I love to see the happiness and smiles from our patients and parents. The before and after of orthodontics is truly amazing!

My overall job is keeping everyone happy: our patients, parents, team, and doctor! My other top priority is maintaining a smooth-running, successful office; after 18 years here, I’m still learning. I make sure we’re well-staffed with an awesome team and handle payroll, accounts payable and receivable, and a host of administrative and technical duties, too.

When I’m not at the office, I enjoy spending my weekend hours with my two daughters and nine grandkids. Canoeing, swimming, and being adventurous is always fun. I also enjoy supporting their recreational sports, clubs, and other activities.
