Front Desk Coordinator

I’ve spent the last 19 of my over 25 years in the dental field with this team and I love it! Our families are the best! I particularly enjoy putting together the contests for our patients. When I’m not at the office, I’m home spending time with my husband and cats. And you’ll see me powerwalking all over West Chester. Be sure to say “Hi” if you can catch me!


Financial Coordinator

I have been part of the West Chester Orthodontics team for over 16 years. I started out welcoming patients at the front desk but in 2016 I transitioned into the Financial Coordinator position. This role allows me to meet with our families and help make paying for orthodontics as easy as possible. Please know I am always available for any financial questions you may have at any time but when not at the office I enjoy camping, movies and, my favorite, the beach, with my family. 

Treatment Coordinator

Cat, RDH

I joined the West Chester Orthodontics team in 2006 after practicing as a dental hygienist for several years.  My background allows me to give our patients the tools and skills to keep their smiles healthy and beautiful for a lifetime. I am honored to be part of this amazing team and look forward to guiding you through your orthodontic journey. Outside of the office, I keep very busy with my husband and 4 children playing with our dogs, working in my garden and baking all sorts of yummy treats. I’d love to share some recipes with you!

Clinical Coordinator


I grew up in Chester County and still reside there. I graduated from the dental assisting program at YTI in 2013 and have been working at West Chester Orthodontics ever since. When I'm not at work, I spend my time with my 2 sons playing at the park, taking walks and going to SkyZone. I enjoy building relationships with patients and can not wait to meet you at your next visit.


Clinical Assistant

I was born and raised on the island of Malta. I have always loved spending time with family, traveling, and trying out new restaurants. Working in this environment has given me the opportunity to achieve my goals and become the person I always wanted to be. Helping people achieve a beautiful and healthy smile is very rewarding and I simply love interacting with and building relationships with our patients. Looking forward to help brighten more smiles!
