What originally got you interested in a job in the orthodontic field?
I was lucky enough to have had orthodontic treatment with Dr. Lawrence (who was the previous owner of Dr. Harris’s practice) and knew his staff and often thought it would be a nice environment to work in. Shortly after my treatment ended, the position of the financial/insurance coordinator became available and I have enjoyed my career here since that time.

If you could have dinner with any 3 people, alive or dead, who would they be and why?
My daddy passed away in 1993. I was a daddy’s girl. I could always ask him anything and not feel like it was a dumb question. I would love the opportunity to have a good conversation with him again.My husband’s father passed away shortly before I met my husband. I hear lots of stories about what a good man he was. I would love to have the opportunity to sit down and get to know him. My grandmother was my everything. She passed away in 1983 when I was expecting my first child. It would be great to be able to introduce my children and grandchildren to her and for them to know what a wonderful lady she was.
