Office Administrator

I am a UNC-Chapel Hill graduate and have worked in the dental field for more than 35 years. I am the team member who handles the adminstrative and financial responsiblities of the dental practice to make sure everything is running smoothly.  With my background in teaching, I like to educate patients on how they can improve their dental health and appearance. 

I enjoy interacting with our patients, many of whom I have known for years- they are my second family!

My husband Ron and I have two children and four grandchildren. I like to travel, cook, garden,  hike, and do fun things with my grandchildren.

Front Desk Coordinator  

I graduated from St. Charles, MO Tech School, I bring over 27 years of dental experience as a Certified Dental Assistant. I originally started with Dr. Key in 2000 and have returned over 3 years ago. I am excited about past & now present relationships with our patients. I am looking forward to many more!

As the Front Office Coordinator, I am the first voice patients hear on the phone, and smiling face at check in and out. In a down to earth, unhurried manner, I help with all aspects of scheduling, insurance and understanding your recommended dental treatment.

I currently reside in Conover, with my boyfriend Johnny. I have 2 dogs & 2 cats, all rescue! I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I stay very active from kayaking, camping, motorcycles, DIY projects & anything outdoors.

I graduated from Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College and have over 15 years of dental experience. A person's smile is one of the first things others notice.  With Dr. Key's help, my job enables me to help other achieve and maintain their best smile.  I have been so blessed to have a career that I love.

During my free time, my husband and I are busy working on our small farm and we also love spending time with our friends and family.

My favorite part of my job is building meaningful relationships with my patients and positively influencing them toward optimum dental health.
