Scheduling Coordinator

I have been working as a scheduling coordinator since 2005 and enjoy getting to know our patients and watching their perfect smile be created. I am grateful to be a part of such a fabulous and fun team here at Burton Orthodontics.

I was born and raised in Grand Junction where I met my amazing husband. We have two wonderful daughters and an awesome grandson. Together as a family, we are very active in archery, rodeo, and 4H. I enjoy fishing, hunting, hiking, riding horses, and being in the great outdoors with family and friends.

I was born and raised in Oregon and graduated from Brigham Young University. After living all over the western United States, my family and I are thrilled to call the Grand Valley our home. In addition to the fun I have at Burton Orthodontics, I enjoy running, serving in my church and the community, and getting together with family and friends.

Orthodontic Technician

I attended Mesa State College (now Colorado Mesa University), received orthodontic training on the job, and have been in the profession for over 36 years. It is an awesome pleasure to be a member of the Burton Orthodontic team! It has been a wonderful experience working in a profession that helps to change people’s lives through their beautiful smiles.

I am blessed with a wonderful husband, Steve, and two very active daughters, Sophia and Sadie, as well as our family toy poodle, Max. We stay busy watching our girls in year-round sports: soccer, basketball, and skiing. My passion is watching our girls grow and learn. I also enjoy cooking, gardening, golfing, fishing, four-wheeling, and spending time at our cabin.

Orthodontic Technician

Orthodontics has played a big role in my life. I worked for Dr. Orr for almost 38 years before he retired and am now happy to be a member of the Burton Orthodontics team. I love providing confident, healthy smiles to teens, and increasingly adults.

I have lived in Grand Junction since 1973. I graduated from Fruita Monument High School and Colorado School of Dental Assisting. I married my best friend, Greg. We have two grown children: a daughter in Washington D.C. who is a journalist and a son in Denver who teaches preschool. I’m active in my church and community by volunteering once a month at HomewardBound shelter and taking mission trips to El Salvador every summer. I love traveling with my husband and look forward to my first grandchild in the spring.

Orthodontic Technician

I was born in Salt Lake City and moved to Grand Junction when I was seven, so the Grand Valley feels like home. I graduated from Grand Junction High School in 2001 and started working in the orthodontic field when I was 19; it quickly became a passion of mine! I love helping to create beautiful smiles and getting to know our fantastic patients. I know many people might think this is crazy, but I think teenagers are AWESOME!

I am happily married with four children. I love spending time with my family and friends and enjoy sports, fishing, movies, good times, and my days spent working at Burton Orthodontics.

I’ve lived in Grand Junction my entire life, and now, along with my husband, I am raising our three wonderful children here. I love watching my kids participate in sports like volleyball, basketball, and baseball. We also have two dogs that keep me on my toes!
