I am an orthodontic assistant here at Petty, Bielik and Burke. I started in 2007, and I consider myself lucky to work for and with such great people. I enjoy talking to my patients and finding out what their interests are and watching the progress of their changing teeth. Some of the things I do here are helping the doctors put on braces, change wires, take impressions, x-rays and photos. I also talk to my patients about the importance of keeping their teeth and gums clean and healthy. I enjoy working on teeth, it doesn't gross me out at all! When I'm not working, I like to spend time with friends and family. I enjoy going out to eat, shopping, playing games, listening to music watching TV, working on craft projects, and working in my garden.
