Office Manager / Treatment Coordinator

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Health Services and have enjoyed every minute of my dental career for over 30 years. I love greeting new patients, helping with initial consultations, and working with kids and adults to help them with their Optimal Treatment Plan.

Meet GrantDentist in Portage

Financial Coordinator

I started at Sage Orthodontics doing part time advertising work. Since joining full time, I have added numerous responsibilities to my plate here including being your source for any financial or insurance questions you may have. My goal for each day is to come to work with a good attitude. At home, I love “nerding” it up with my PC and PS4, watching the Lions, and playing with my two cats.
