After spending years working in a business oriented setting, I decided I needed a career that was more fulfilling. So with that said, I attended DATS of Maryland where I received my dental assisting certification. After experiencing Orthodontics during my externship, I knew I had found my passion and continued my education to become a certified Orthodontic assistant. After four years as an assistant, I recently moved over to the administration side of things as a financial coordinator. I love seeing the transformation of our patients from start to finish. The first smile after treatment is just so special. Being a member of a team that is passionate and loves what they do is why I love working at ALO.
I joined Apicella-Lorei Orthodontics knowing my love for helping others and my desire to go above and beyond would align perfectly with their team. I am highly motivated to constantly develop my skills and grow professionally. I’m known as the “tech girl” for my friends and family, so I am not afraid to take on a challenge. I am ecstatic about my journey with the ALO Team! When I’m not focused on work, I love to enjoy a nice cup of coffee!
I have been an ALO team member since 1972, working as a certified orthodontic assistant. I now work part-time in the ALO Business Office, but still maintain my orthodontic assisting certification. I feel that I chose this profession because my father had the most beautiful teeth and I believe I got my smile and teeth from him. However, due to medications related to epilepsy he lost his teeth. In a way, I believe I am preserving or honoring him by seeing the many beautiful smiles that have been created throughout my long career. It is also very rewarding to meet all of our wonderful patients and families, and being able to see the changes in their smiles that our practice provides. While I enjoy spending quality time with my family, I enjoy being here so much and love being with my “work family”.
Before becoming a dental assistant, I enjoyed volunteering at my local church and schools. It was something I could do with my family and family is very important to me. My family and I are Disney fanatics and we love traveling to Disney World and other places throughout the country.
I graduated from HACC with a certificate in dental assisting. I have always had an interest in Dentistry but was not heading towards Orthodontics until I completed an externship at ALO. Seeing patients complete their treatment and gaining confidence from their new smiles is so rewarding. It is also rewarding to know I am now part of an amazing team that impacts people’s lives.
