I began my career at Charlottesville Orthodontics in 1993 as a Clinical Assistant. I had the privilege of working with Dr. Weis from the very beginning of his career here in Charlottesville. I left the practice in 2002 when my second son was born to raise my family.  After taking a 13.5 year break from Orthodontics, I returned to the practice in 2016 as a Scheduling Coordinator. I absolutely love this practice and our patients. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, especially my two boys who are the apples of my eye.

If you need anything vintage or unique, I am the queen of finding collectibles! In my free time, I love being with my family and friends. Any time during the week, you can find me walking on the Monticello Trail.
