I am originally from St. Louis. My husband, Bill, and I celebrated our 25th anniversary this year, and we live in Herrin with our dog, Buttons. We have two boys: Nicholas is a Senior at U of I, and Brendan is a Freshman at SIU-E. I received my Dental Hygiene degree from SIU-C, and I have worked in the ortho/dental field for over three decades. I joined the Childers team in March of 2009 as a Treatment Coordinator and am thrilled to be back in orthodontics. I especially love seeing my past patients bring in their own children to receive beautiful smiles. I love singing and playing hand bells in the church choir, fun times with friends, and watching my boys grow into wonderful young men.

FUN FACT #1….I am a former Miss America (okay…that is a lie!)

FUN FACT #2…I am named after a horse (THAT is the truth)
