I love creating beautiful smiles, because your smile is the best accessory!

Katie

Front Desk / TMD Treatment Coordinator / TMD Insurance

Team Member since 2001

  • What was your first job? My first job was as a soccer referee at the age of 12. 
  • What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given? The best advice I was ever given was from my grandmother.  She said, “Someday you will want the busy back, the crying, the fighting, the playing, and laughing. Eventually life slows down and though you still have your family, it’s not the same. There is nothing better than the days your children are at home creating whatever chaos they may.” I think of her words often now when my life is so busy. I can’t squeeze another thing in, because I’m a parent, work and have busy kids. They were demanding as infants, continue to challenge me, and keep my schedule packed with their activities, but they are my biggest blessing.  So daily, I remember my grandmother’s words and take the moments in rather than worry about the busy.
