Meet Our Staff

I was born and raised in Casper Wyoming, but I am NOT a cowgirl! I grew up skiing and I played softball 5 nights a week. I am the proud mother of a daughter named Morgan and we have two sweet dogs named Sadie and Bindi. I started in the orthodontic field back in 1993. My gosh that makes me feel old!! I moved to Denver in 2010 and started with Dr. Straffon as a clinical assistant. I am now his Office Manager which I love. The girls here are awesome...we are like family. :)
