Meet the Staff
Treatment Coordinator - I have been honored to work with Dr. Smith for over 11 years. I enjoy working in orthodontics because each day I am surrounded by the most beautiful and friendly smiles! The most treasured gifts in my life are my two beautiful daughters. I am also the proud master of my cat, Bela. Outside of the practice, I am passionate about photography, music, great movies, theatre, anything and everything to do with food, being with people, and making a difference in the lives of those around me.
