Meet the Team

We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.



Insurance Coordinator

I joined Brazos Valley Orthodontics in 2017. I take care of our patients’ billing and am their liaison in working with their insurance. I enjoy working with patients and helping them sort through the financial aspect of their treatment. Our team has created an honest work environment where we genuinely care about our patients and each other.

I am a licensed veterinary technician and love my family, which includes my husband, two kids, and two dogs. I enjoy hunting, fishing, and gardening, along with anything outdoors. I also run the nonprofit organization for my husband’s company for Brazos County.



I began my RDA career in 1992 and joined Dr. Gardner’s team a few years later. I make sure that all setups are ready for the day, communicate with Dr. Gardner about patients and their treatment, coordinate assistants’ work schedules, and assist in all aspects of patient treatment.

Throughout our patients’ treatment, I feel like I’ve really created a bond with them, and that’s very important to me. I love to find out about our patients and keep up with what’s going on in their lives. We have the best team ever. The girls in the office love to have fun and we all love our patients as well.

I live in the country, where we have chickens. Outside of work, my time is spent with my three grandkids. One plays sports and the other two do rodeo, so they keep us busy! I also do a lot of girl trips with my close friends.



I obtained my RDA in 2009 and have been in orthodontics for nearly a decade. I serve as a chairside assistant by placing and removing braces and providing oral hygiene instruction to patients. It’s very fulfilling to work in an office where patients achieve the orthodontic health they’ve always been looking for. Working with the girls in the office is a blast; each and every day is different. We truly are a team!

I have been married to my childhood best friend for several years and am a new mom to a handsome little boy. I also love anything that has to do with the outdoors.



Appointment Coordinator

I have worked at Brazos Valley Orthodontics for more than 30 years as our appointment coordinator. I greet patients, answer incoming calls, and coordinate appointments to meet our patients’ needs. I enjoy talking with parents and patients and getting to know them better. It’s my goal to make them feel comfortable whenever they’re in our office. Everyone on our team is great, including Dr. Gardner. We are like family!

I have been married for more than 25 years and have two wonderful children. I enjoy spending with my family and our pets.


Business Manager / Marketing

I work closely with Dr. Gardner and our team to guarantee a great patient experience, both by managing the business side of the practice and marketing and promoting our business in the community. I meet with many of our new patients and families, who come into our office looking for a practice that will put their needs first. Here at BVO, we treat patients like family and welcome them with open arms.

I’ve been married to Dr. Gardner for a quarter century and we have three wonderful children. In our free time, we enjoy traveling, attending concerts and sporting events, and being involved in our community.
