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.

I feel very blessed and think I have the best job in the world! I joined the Charlottesville Orthodontics team in 2002. I enjoyed working chair side with Drs. Weis and Varner for many years. I am now the Practice Relations Coordinator. We at Charlottesville Orthodontics provide our patients with beautiful smiles for a lifetime. I get to be a small part of that by bringing smiles to people's faces out in the community. I enjoy spreading the word about what we love to do, visiting dental offices, showing people how much we appreciate them, planning and inviting people to fun events and plugging us into the community we absolutely adore.

When I’m not in the office I can be found spending time with my family, exploring new trails or at home working on craft projects.

I started working at Charlottesville Orthodontics in January 2012 as a Scheduling Coordinator. After a year, I transitioned to the back where I currently assist Drs. Weis and Varner chair side. My attraction to the dental field began in high school, and I’m lucky to spend my days doing what I really have a passion for. I’m beyond blessed to be able to work with such an incredible group of people. Our amazing patients are what inspires me daily, and I love helping them attain a beautiful smile they can be proud of for a lifetime.

In the summer of 2017, I was fortunate to join the team here at Charlottesville Orthodontics. Since I was a young teenager with braces, I knew I wanted this to be my career. To be able to work with such a great team, with wonderful doctors, has been very rewarding. Our patients come in to the office with smiles on their faces because they feel comfortable and confident in the service provided. I love being part of that.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my two amazing sons and our pug, Leo. I also enjoy reading and visiting new places around Virginia. I love spending time with my family and I am blessed to live close to them. I always look forward to meeting our patients, greeting you with a genuine smile and welcoming you to our office as I am confident you will be satisfied with your experience.

I joined Charlottesville Orthodontics in early 2014 as an Orthodontic Assistant and received my certification in 2016. Since the day I had braces put on in high school, I have had an interest in dentistry. Before finishing my assisting program based in Fredericksburg, Virginia, I was asked to become part of this amazing team. I enjoy working chair side next to Drs. Weis and Varner. We have an amazing, skilled and inspiring group of individuals that I have the pleasure of working with every day. I look forward to helping our patients enjoy their beautiful smiles for a lifetime.

In late January 2015, I obtained my orthodontic assistant position here at Charlottesville Orthodontics. From the first day of being in the office, I knew this was where I wanted to call home. Working alongside Dr. Weis and Dr. Varner has been more than I could have ever imagined, as they are just as patient and compassionate toward their staff as they are with their patients. It is truly an honor to be able to come to the office each day knowing that what you are doing is making an impact in someone else’s life.

On the days I am not working, you can find me with my loving fiancé, Kyle, and our precious little girl, Kyleigh. We spend a lot of our time around the farm with our German Shepard, riding four-wheelers, or enjoying meals with our parents and siblings.

I look forward to meeting and providing a new meaningful smile to our current and future patients!
