Office Manager

I have been in the dental field since 1984. I have worked in all areas of the dental front desk, as
well as 18 years in dental office management. I joined the Ross Dental Group in August 2022 and am very excited to be a part of this wonderful team!

Insurance Coordinator

I have been a part of the Ross Dental Group team since 2007. I handle the insurance for the office. I will try my very best to answer any and all insurance questions and concerns you may have. If I don't know the answer, I'll find someone who does.

I am from Butler County and graduated from Miami University with a BS in Education. I am married and I have two wonderful sons. My youngest plays baseball and football for Ross and my oldest plays football for Thomas Moore University. In my free time I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family.

Front Desk

As a young child, my love for the dental field began! I had the most heart-warming and postitive experiences at the dentist, and I knew that one day I would love to do the same for others! My journey with dentistry began in 2012 when I went to Fortis College for Dental Assisting. 

In 2019 I began my administrative dental career as a Treatment Coordinator. I am thrilled to be the newest member of the Ross Dental Group in 2022!

Outside of the office, I enjoy soaking in every precious moment with my husband and daughter. I also enjoy doing my nails, playing with my pup, cuddling with our two kitties, and baking yummy treats!

I look forward to working with you, and attending to all of your dental health needs!
