What is your role at Blue Ridge Orthodontics?

I work as the lead clinical assistant here at our main office in Asheville.

Why do you love BRO so much?

Dr. Roberts is an amazing boss and he truly cares about everyone on the staff! Here at the Blue Ridge Orthodontics, the working environment is very fun and friendly. We’re all very passionate about our respective roles and we support each other. BRO is my second home!

Can you tell us why you love living in Asheville so much?

My husband and I loving exploring the mouth watering variety of restaurants and breweries that Asheville has to offer! With so many amazing places to choose from, it really is a foodies dream city.

Our favorite local brewery has to be Sierra Nevada– if you haven’t been to their beautiful establishment, you’re really missing out!

What’s a fun fact about yourself Karissa?

I’m an avid volleyball player and love spending my free time playing volleyball for the rec league here in Asheville. You set it in the air and I’ll hit it anywhere! 

What’s your favorite guilty pleasure TV show?

Alright so I have to say that my favorite guilty pleasure TV show is Floribama Shore! It’s got all the drama and OMG moments that you could want in a show- I love it!

We just wanted to thank Karissa for sharing these answers with us! She’s great and she is looking forward to meeting you if you come visit us at BRO. For our next staff spotlight, we’re chilling with Cody, our hilarious front desk coordinator. Stay tuned!
