Scheduling Coordinator, Lab Technician, Sterilization, Marketing

I have been a part of the Creekside Orthodontics team since 2009. As the lab technician, I am able to see every patient’s beginning and completed models. I also aide in scheduling our patients’ next appointments and assist our clinical staff. I enjoy seeing how braces change people’s lives by seeing what their teeth look like before treatment and watching the amazing results reveal themselves throughout treatment. I also love working with our wonderful team! Our office has a fun atmosphere where we all love to laugh!

I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, Matt; we like to be outside in the sunshine, especially taking hikes around Pena Adobe. We also have a cat named Lola.

I love supporting my coworkers and their families cheer on their kid's at their sports events, and spending quality time with my friends and family.

Accounting / Bookkeeper

I have been a part of the Creekside Orthodontics team since 2004. I am responsible for payroll, accounts payable, and marketing. I really love interacting with our great staff, especially our doctors. They are committed to giving our patients the best quality care, and their dedication is contagious. Both doctors stay up on the latest technology and are continually researching new materials and procedures to improve patient comfort and overall treatment.

Outside the office, I have three grown children and a cat. I enjoy reading and walking. I am also active in my local church by leading a weekly women’s Bible study discussion group.

Registered Dental Assistant, Marketing

I have been with the Creekside Orthodontics team since 2014. I completed my Dental Assisting studies at Blake Austin College where I then took the state test and acquired my license as a Registered Dental Assistant. I love working with my team and doctors because we all get along very well.  It’s easy to work with people whom you can communicate easily with. However, my favorite part of my job is seeing the look on our patients’ faces when they see the changes in their smile for the first time.

In my free time, I like to attend sporting events. I’m a huge SF Giants fan, and I love to cheer for the Dallas Cowboys on Sundays. I have a puppy named Arrow whom I rescued from the local SPCA.

Treatment Coordinator, Registered Dental Assistant, Marketing

I have been with the Creekside Orthodontics team since 2006. I aide the doctors in educating patients and guiding them personally through the beginning of their orthodontic experience by helping them decide on the best possible orthodontic treatment. The best part of my job is making people feel better about their smiles! We all love to laugh and have a great time!

When I’m not at work, I spend time with my husband, Kris, and our dog, Bentley. I enjoy baking, camping, and spending time with my family and friends, especially my niece.

Financial Coordinator, Scheduling, Marketing

I have been with the Creekside Orthodontics team since 2014, and am responsible for scheduling our patients, and helping them with any questions that they might have about the office. I love welcoming each patient to our office every day and making them feel as if they were at home. I also enjoy spending my days with my coworkers. We are an extremely fun and upbeat team that really works well together.

I am a mother to three children, two boys Harvey and Haedyn, and my daughter Halle. I am very active with my kids and their love for sports. You can most likely find me on either a football or baseball field. If and when we have free time, you can catch us by the beach enjoying the sunshine.

Registered Dental Assistant, Sterilization, Lab Assistant

I joined Creekside Orthodontics in 2015 after studying to be a dental assistant at Blake Austin College, where I tested with the state and acquired my license as a Registered Dental Assistant! Here at our office, I am responsible for maintaining the sterilization standards put forth to ensure the health and safety of our patients. Working here is a lot of fun, not only because of our awesome patients, but because of our outstanding team!

I am an Air Force brat, so I have traveled all over and even lived in Italy for four years. I’m a huge sports fan! I love football, basketball and baseball, just to name a few. The Denver Broncos, Los Angeles Clippers, and the Red Sox are my teams and I love going to watch them when they are in town. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family on the weekends, and going to the beach with my two dogs, Buddy and Marly.
