Carol and her husband, David, recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary, and are proud of their three children: Donovan, Katie and Maggie and 17 grandchildren!

Kathy has been a member of our office Team since 2011. Prior to her joining us, she was employed with an orthodontist in Oklahoma for 21 years! During that time, Kathy wore nearly all "hats" in the office: front office, clinical assistant, radiography, and accounting! There's very little she can't do! Needless to say, we feel so fortunate that she contacted our office as she anticipated a relocation to the Wichita area. She serves as our patient administrator, which is multifaceted, as she is used to that type of work. As patient administrator, she is the first voice our new patients hear as she schedules their consultation. Kathy manages the practice checkbook, making sure we can pay bills at the end of the month, as well as at the beginning! She meets the needs of the staff by managing employee benefits and insures our inventory items are stocked and available when needed.

Kathy's hobbies include walking outdoors in fair weather, or on a treadmill when not! She enjoys reading, watching a good movie and has a tremendous love for the arts. You may run into her at the art museum or attending a performance at the Music Theatre of Wichita. Kathy loves spending time with her family and friends, and on those rare occasions of "idle time" she enjoys making jewelry.
