Office Manager

Kellie fell in love with braces and teeth when she got her first set of braces at the age of 9. She knew very quickly that she wanted to be a part of that life-changing experience for other people. She traveled every weekend to school for dental assisting at the American Institute of Dental Assisting, receiving her certificate of completion along with her DANB radiology certificate right out of school. Kellie has experience in both pediatric and general dentistry, but orthodontics has her heart. It’s been a beautiful journey, and she believes everything she has experienced has led back to braces and ABC Orthodontics!

Kellie has been married to her wonderful husband, Jason, since 2015, and they have been together for over 13 years (and counting). They share two wild little boys, Harrison and Grayson. In her time out of the office, Kellie and her family like to be very active and go on lots of adventures — Disneyland is her second home! Kellie is also a member of a local bellydance troupe, Blue Dot Belly Dance. She has been a bellydancer for over 16 years and loves performing with fire!


Financial Coordinator

Erica has been a part of the ABC team since 2019 but worked previously at an orthodontic office in Illinois before moving to Yuma. She oversees the daily financial accounts and works closely with the treatment coordinators to ensure our patients and their parents have a smooth process when discussing the proposed treatment plans, financial options and insurance benefits.

In her spare time, Erica enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling and watching her children’s sporting events.


Treatment Coordinator

Patricia attended dental assisting school in Phoenix, graduating with her associate degree in pre-hygiene and joining our team in November 2021. She helps our doctor recommend treatments and helps our patients coordinate, schedule and understand their treatment plans. She loves the people she works with — especially the patients!

Patricia grew up in Yuma, where she met the special man in her life, Gene, when they were both 11 years old. When she has spare time, she enjoys hiking, swimming, four-wheeling and hunting for rocks.
