I started with BRO as a Front Desk Coordinator in Asheville, I then switched to Financial Coordinator, and finally made my way home to Orthodontic Assistant. Assisting is SO fun. I really enjoy working alongside our amazing Doctors to help achieve beautiful smiles for our patients. As for my daily duties, I grab patients throughout the day, make retainers, Order for clinics in our Hendersonville location, upload patient records, and I make the schedule for our Asheville Clinic girls. Working as an Assistant is constantly changing, adapting, and learning new techniques. I could not ask for a better Career.

When I’m not at work I’m most likely at home with my husband, Tyler. My Golden Retriever Bocephus, and my cat Tooty. Both Tyler and I love to play video games, so we wind down at night playing on our PCs next to each other. If we are not at our computers, we are most likely making art! If I’m not at home, just go to Target… I’m probably at Target…
