Administrative Assistant/Receptionist

I've been working at this practice since 1981 with the exception of a two-year break in 2004. My favorite part about this job is meeting and getting to know the patients and their families. It's also a joy to see the children transform during their treatment!

I’ve been married to my amazing husband Victor for 30 years. We have two children, Nick and Gina. Our black lab Ellie is also a special part of our family. In my spare time I enjoy snowmobiling, cooking, and just spending time with my family and friends.

Receptionist at the Perry office

I perform all receptionist and office functions at our Perry office. I love working with patients and their family members. The best part, though, is seeing the end result and how pleased the patients are with their smile. We all work well together because we have the same goal: keeping our patients on track and happy.

My favorite times outside of the office are spent with my husband and granddaughter. I also enjoy antiques, walking, biking, and classic cars.

I assist the doctors with patients, do sterilization, and pack supplies for our satellite offices. It's a great feeling being able to help our patients achieve their best smile and to build their confidence. The entire team truly cares about our patients and we all work well together. I underwent orthodontic treatment myself, so I understand what our patients have to do to achieve the smile they want.

My husband and I have four sons and some grand-babies. We all love to do outdoor activities like camping, four wheeling, and snowmobiling. We also have two boxers that have as much energy as the kids do!
