I joined Team Kaplan Orthodontics in June 2007 after graduating from Vanderbilt University. I worked as a Certified Orthodontic Assistant for two years and then transitioned into my current position as the Treatment Coordinator. I believe the clinical knowledge I gained as an assistant is essential to my ability to easily and effectively explain the recommended treatment to new patients. Outside of Kaplan Orthodontics I love to dance (I have been dancing for over 20 years!) and discuss nutrition (I gained certification as a holistic health coach in May 2013). I love the energetic and friendly environment we have here at Kaplan Orthodontics and I am excited to have you join our patient family!
I am the Office Manager for Kaplan Orthodontics. I was born and raised in Memphis, TN. Dr. Kaplan and I moved to Atlanta in 2002 to begin his Orthodontic career and add to our family with our wonderful sons, Matthew and Pace. I am available to help with all financial and insurance questions and make your overall experience in the office a pleasure. In my “spare” time I enjoy reading books and magazines, socializing with family and friends and making sure my “boys” have clean clothes! The advice I would give to patients is, Orthodontics is worth the effort! My favorite aspect of working with Dr. Kaplan is that he is always striving to be the best and he is always willing to make changes towards improvement.
