Asheville Team


Front Office

I began my career in 2001, and worked in orthodontics for 17 years before joining Appalachian Dental Associates in 2018. I enjoy greeting patients with a smile and helping them feel comfortable while scheduling their appointments and discussing insurance and billing. I also love working with this team — we are one big family and have fun!

My husband Byron and I live in Canton. We have two dogs, Callie and Bella, who keep us on our toes. I love spending time with my family, being involved in our church, going to the lake, and lazy movie days on the couch!


Front Desk / Treatment Coordinator

I joined Appalachian Dental Associates in 2017. In addition to answering phones and scheduling appointments, I also help patients understand their dental benefits and coverage before treatment. I love the personal interaction with our patients, day in and day out. I enjoy being part of such a happy office. We have all turned into one big family and you can’t find that in many places. Our patients even notice how well we all work together from the start of their visit to the end.

I am from Candler, born and raised. We just recently bought property and built a home in Canton. We have two fur babies that we spoil to the core. In my free time, I love fishing, hiking, anything outdoors, and spending time with my family.


Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated from AB Tech’s dental hygiene program in 2017, where I received the Student Total Achievement Recognition Award for “compassion in patient care, enthusiasm for community service and dedication to and enjoyment of the profession of dental hygiene.” I am most passionate about my patients who are on a new oral health journey, and I feel fortunate to take that journey with them! I thoroughly love coming to work every day! Our office works together for the same goal: complete patient care. There is a professionalism here that is equally matched with fun and laughter!

I am a wife of a dozen years to the best man I have ever met, and the mother of two boys, as well as three kitties. I am a lover of life’s simple beauties and a complete dental nerd!


Dental Hygienist

I completed my dental hygiene degree in 1992 and have been fortunate to have spent my entire career working in the same office! Over the years, I’ve gotten to know so many patients and families, and I love that I’ve become a part of their lives — they’ve become a part of mine too! We really are like a family here, and most people notice it the moment they walk through the doors.

I’m from Marshall and have been married for almost three decades. We have a son we love with all we have. In my free time, I enjoy quilting, canning, and photography!


Dental Hygienist

I graduated from Asheville-Buncombe Technical School with my dental hygiene degree in 2001 and joined this office in 2012. I love the satisfaction of seeing a patient’s mouth after a cleaning, or how much progress a patient has made in health because of good home care. Seeing how pleased and excited my patients are is wonderful as well! Our team is the best: We laugh together, work well together, and simply enjoy being around one another.

I have been married for nearly 20 years to my childhood sweetheart and have two great kids, Brodie and Ava. We also have a precious young Lllewellin Setter named Willow. Our lives stay busy with surrounding family and church. We attend Alexander Baptist, where my husband is a deacon and I’m a Sunday school teacher.


Dental Assistant

I graduated from AB Tech 1982 and worked in oral surgery and public health until 2002, when I joined Dr. Harris’s office. I love all that surrounds dentistry, from the start of an appointment until the end. I want our patients to feel comfortable and confident that they’ve made the right choice in coming to our office. Our team rocks! We share the same goal of helping patients live healthier lives, and we share a lot of laughs too!

I am happily married to my best friend and we are very blessed to have a wonderful daughter. I love camping, the beach, mountains, and the lake. Family is everything and I am fully blessed.
