Meet Our Staff

Events & Community Relations Coordinator

I am a treatment coordinator at our office. I have been working with Dr. Kristo and Dr. Bronski for almost 15 years. I enjoy my job and love seeing our patients with their families and the smiles they bring into the office.

When I am not at work, I enjoy many activities: traveling, fishing, biking, gardening, canning and having friends over for cookouts. The most recent adventure was our vacation to Canada. Our house is very active and something is always going on. I have a wonderful husband Matt, we have been married for 17 years and three wonderful kids, Katelynn 16, Brooke 12 and Joey 7. Our lives are very busy with school and sports and life in general.

I have been with Team Kristo for almost 10 yrs all together now!!! I love being apart of making beautiful smiles and seeing how happy our patients are when they achieve that perfect smile. I have 20 years of general dental & orthodontic experience. It is very rewarding to be able to help people and educate them when it comes to their dental needs!

When I am not at work, I am very involved with my 19yr old daughter Makenna that has a huge passion for horses!!! You will find us most weekends horse showing around the Chippewa Valley.

Besides owning our quarter horse Indy, we have 3 crazy cats JJ, Pip, & Chip.

When we aren't busy with our furry friends, I love to get up north and take a relaxing ride on the pontoon around the lake and stay at our home away from home. Nothing better then to get away from it all and sitting around a campfire making smores. I also love to travel and see the world. We recently just vacationed in Florida and can not wait to go back!!!

I have been an assistant with Kristo Orthodontics since 2004. When I am not caring for you and your family you can find me busy with my family. Along with my husband I have 2 daughters.
