Front Office Administrator / Treatment Coordinator

I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Rhoads since the grand opening of the Cranberry Township location in 2013. Orthodontics has been one of my passions for over 30 years.  I feel blessed to work alongside an orthodontist who is gifted at creating beautiful, healthy, and confident smiles. My responsibilities within the practice allow me to get to know our wonderful patients and families on a uniquely personal level.  I love my Rhoads Orthodontics family and feel very lucky to work alongside them each day. 

When I am not at my Rhoads Orthodontics home, I enjoy a delightfully busy life with my husband and our three children.  We love spending quality time together, traveling, and relishing every moment spent with our amazing extended family and friends both in Cranberry Township and Erie, PA.

I have worked in orthodontics for over 8 years. The two years I have worked at Rhoads Orthodontics has been, by far, the best. I love seeing the constant positive changes in our patients’ appearance and enjoy developing relationships with them and their families.  I recently started wearing braces myself, so I can really relate to our patients, what they are experiencing, and the excitement of watching my smile transform.

When I am not at work or working out at the gym, I love spending time with my fiancée Brent, my black lab Geno, and my family.

Since I started working for Rhoads Orthodontics I have learned what an absolute pleasure it is to be working for such an amazing orthodontist.  Dr. Rhoads’ excellent reputation for quality orthodontics enticed me to work for her. 

With over 19 years in the orthodontic field, I have had my hands in many aspects of the profession. I am also proud to be a part of a wonderful team of clinical assistants and office staff.  We always put our patients first to give them the smiles they deserve. I especially love caring for our patients and my goal is to ensure that each visit to Rhoads Orthodontics is a wonderful experience for every single patient.

Outside of work I love spending time with my husband and son.  Our weekends are spent traveling to baseball games and cheering on the Pirates!
