Treatment Coordinator/Office Manager
I’ve been working in orthodontics since I was 16! I was blessed to work with my mom who retired after 40 years of orthodontic assisting. After earning my bachelor’s degree, I went on to be an orthodontic sales representative for eight years. That position is what brought me to south Florida and how I got to know Dr. West!
As our treatment coordinator, I get the pleasure of meeting with new patients and welcoming them to our office! I also use my creative side in helping to market our practice to the community, in addition to working with insurance providers on our patients’ behalf. The best part of my job by far is seeing our patients’ confidence grow as their smile changes. Dr. West, our team, and I take great care of our patients and have a good time doing so!
I am from beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee, but have called South Florida my home away from home since 2010. I am happily married to my husband Jon, who’s a biologist. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking and baking, exercising, and live music, but mostly spending time with those I love!
Head Certified Orthodontic Assistant
I am proud to be the head orthodontic assistant to Dr. West. I have been working as a certified orthodontic assistant since 2003, and am happy to say that I love what I do. My job entails caring for our patients and making sure they have a great experience at Family Orthodontics. I love seeing patients so happy with their smiles, and knowing that we helped them achieve their smile goals. I enjoy meeting new people and making new friends with our patients while they are here with us.
Dr. West and my team are the best because we work together so well — like a well-oiled machine. Whether we are serving patients or just with our team, we always have a blast. We make every day at work fun, no matter what!
I was born in New York, but raised here in South Florida. I’ve been married since 2007 to my husband Farah, who is from Morocco. We have a little boy named Adam, who was born in 2009. We love traveling to Morocco and anywhere else we can go. I love to cook and bake, do photography, go to the beach, and travel. Adam is a Cub Scout, so I am a Scout mom!
