Office Manager/Treatment Coordinator                                                                                                                                                

I embarked on my journey in the dental field in 2009 after graduating from the College of Marin Dental Assisting program. I bring a solid foundation and dedication to our patients and team.

Managing the daily operations and coordinating patient’s treatment is a big part of my responsibilities but I’m also the first point of contact for all of our new patients. I truly enjoy educating patients about their treatment and building a fun easy going rapport. You’ll also see me in the back taking x-rays and helping where needed to ensure a seamless flow for our patients. We all support each other and have so much fun working together. The laughter is never-ending!

I grew up in Novato. I went to Sinaloa Middle School and graduated from San Marin High School. My husband and I have 2 sons who keep us extremely busy. If we have free time we are wine tasting, enjoying yummy foods, getting out doors and soaking up all the family time we can.



Registered Dental Assistant


I started working in dentistry in 1989. I have over 3 decades of experience, bringing the knowledge to ensure patient comfort and positive experience. My favorite part of working at Marin Braces is to see my patients as they progress through treatment and as they change and grow. It is very rewarding. I enjoy helping people and being a part of a great team of dental professionals that feel the same as I do.

My husband and I have three kitties and a new puppy. We have adopted all of our fur babies and I have done volunteer work with animal rescue organizations in our area, as well as outreach programs with our church to help those less fortunate. Some of my favorite things include animals, camping, nature, walking my dog and going to dog parks, hanging out with my friends and family, movies, reading, drawing, and yoga. I also love music and Marvel movies.


Financial Coordinator 

I entered the dental field in 2018 and joined Marin Braces in 2020. My Responsibilities are to handle the phones, schedule appointments, submit claims to insurance and collect payments.I enjoy working with all of our patients. The best part is seeing all of the beautiful smile transformations.

We are a close knit team who genuinely care about each other. We have such a great time at work together so you’ll definitely hear us laughing.

I have two teen kids and two cats who we rescued from the Marin Humane Society two years ago. On my free time I enjoy hiking, soaking up the sun at the beach in the summer or you’ll catch me at the gym.



Certified Dental Assistant

I began my career as a certified dental assistant in 2013, graduating from Everest College in San Francisco. Soon after graduation I joined a private Endodontic practice where I gained a lot of knowledge in the field, from assisting to treatment planning, ordering for the office, training new hires, marketing, and much more. After a great time there, I decided for a change and lucked out when I joined the Marin Braces Family as an assistant. Working in Orthodontics and learning the ropes here has been so fun! I am enjoying working on all of our patients and watching the transformations!

When I’m not in the office, I’m either running around being a mom to my beautiful teenage daughter, Mia, going to Giants or Niner games with my family and friends or waitressing at the Cantina in Mill Valley. All in all I love working with people and being around good vibes. I look forward to continue working with our lovely current patients and meeting all of our new ones to come!
