Kira

Treatment Coordinator

I look forward to coming to work because every day I meet people as they start changing their lives and I make sure everything goes smoothly.

Everyone at RiverView Orthodontics is encouraging and supportive, which makes for a positive environment. I meet new patients and parents, introduce them to orthodontics, take initial photos, and answer questions.

Working closely with patients, I review their treatment plan, explain the process, and work on financing, too. It’s important for people to be able to make informed decisions about care and their new smile!

I’m originally from California but have lived in Tuscaloosa for almost 20 years. I attended Shelton State and graduated from the University of Alabama with a BS in finance/real estate.

My husband Matt and I had our first baby, Dryver, in January 2017. We love being parents.
