I thoroughly enjoy interacting with our patients and their families. I love catching up with them and do my best to make everyone feel comfortable when they come to the office. Seeing people go through orthodontics, and how that changes their personalities and confidence, is fascinating!
I am the first smiling face people see as they enter the office. In addition to welcoming and checking them in, I answer questions, schedule appointments, handle correspondence, and troubleshoot insurance matters.
Outside of work, I love time with my new (early fall 2018) husband, T.J. and our black lab, Archer. Archer is the biggest 100 lb baby and brings such joy to our lives! I love cooking and am always working on some sort of craft project, as I love making and creating things for people.
I like getting to know our patients during their orthodontic treatment. It’s fun to catch up, from visit to visit, and hear what’s been happening in their lives. At the same time, it’s enjoyable to watch each person become happier and more confident as they see the change in their appearance. The day we take off their braces and they see their beautiful smile for the first time is priceless!
I spend my days in the clinic, preparing the treatment area, seating patients, and then working chairside. I assist the doctor with different procedures, including placing and removing brackets, encourage patients to keep up with their home care, and offer education, too.
Originally from Logansport, I’ve lived in Indianapolis since 2012, when I graduated college. My husband Brandon and I married in May 2015. We now have a fun-loving young son, Kingston, who keeps us busy and we’re expecting a little girl to join us in March 2019. Our family also includes two dogs, Ella and Champ. Most of my free time is spent with my family: we love to be outside and are always looking for the next adventure.
Patient Coordinator, Clinical Assistant, and Marketing
I love meeting new people, helping them understand their orthodontic treatment plan, and then assisting them throughout the process. Because I work throughout the practice, I get to see how our patients progress and love watching each person’s self-esteem and confidence blossom!
I wear multiple hats at Align Orthodontics, so I’m always busy. As Patient Coordinator, I handle new patient consults, including presenting treatment plans, estimates, and answering questions about the process. As a Clinical Assistant, I work chairside and provide patient care. And Marketing has me reaching out to the community, telling people about what we do and how orthodontic treatment transforms lives. I love all of it.
The two most important things in my life are Christ and my family. I’ve been blessed with two kids, now grown, so I’m an empty nester. To stay busy, I’m very involved in my church and serve in several areas of the ministry. I also enjoy the outdoors, love to travel and fly, and treasure time with my daughter and son. I am richly blessed and grateful, not only in my personal live, but here at Align Orthodontics.
