I’ve been a Registered and Certified Dental Assistant since 1999. I received my clinical training at Lakeland Medical/Dental Academy in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I joined Dr. Maher’s staff in April 2005. I head up the lab at Valley Orthodontics as well as working chair-side with patients. What drew me to orthodontics was seeing the beautiful smiles we create every day. It makes it all worthwhile to see the patient walk out the door with a new self-assurance. I enjoy working at Valley Orthodontics because Dr. Maher and staff are some of the warmest and most compassionate people I have worked with. Plus, we have the best patients around!

When I’m out of the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Tom; daughter, Fiona; and sweetheart of a dog, Ella. I enjoy hiking along the North Shore, running, shopping with Fiona and going out to dinner with our family and friends.
