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


Certified Orthodontic Assistant / Treatment Coordinator

I attended Bellingham Technical College in 1996 and have worked in the orthodontic field since 1997. I joined Dr. Budd in 2007 as a chairside assistant and treatment coordinator. The best part about working in orthodontics is seeing smiles develop on the patients who didn’t smile before. They disliked their teeth so much that they would cover their mouths when smiling or even talking. As soon as their teeth start straightening however, their smiles are so big!

I have been married since 1998 and have two amazing kids. We live and play in the same community that I work. We are dog lovers and have a Beagle.



Financial Coordinator

I attended VCC and started working in the dental field in 1998. After ten years, I joined the Budd Orthodontics team as the financial coordinator, where I manage our financial contracts and accounts. While I enjoy many things about my job and our office, I most love the end results our patients achieve. There is nothing better than seeing that beautiful smile after we’ve completed treatment!

I’m married and have two lovely daughters. In my spare time, I enjoy keeping fit by running and doing yoga. I have a passion for food, wine, art, travel, and photography.



Certified Orthodontic Assistant

I joined Dr. Budd in 2008 and assist him in all aspects of patient care and clinical procedures. Working in orthodontics is an exceptionally fulfilling career. Our patients are the best! I love to see the little ones grow up to be these big kids and adults over the years. They like to tease me when they get taller than me ... which is usually not too far into their teen years! Kids make me laugh!

I am mom to a teenage boy, Josh, who is a student-athlete and wonderful young man. I am on the CDA Advisory Committee at the College of Dental Surgeons and I volunteer within the community. I’m passionate about many things: reading, walking, yoga, and traveling. I learned to golf this year and hope to become an avid golfer in the years to come.



Senior Assistant / In-House Lab Coordinator

I became a member of Budd Orthodontics in 2008, and brought with me 18 years of experience as a CDA and in orthodontics. I work with Dr. Budd to provide excellent orthodontic care to our patients, as well as retainer fabrication, and utilize the latest indirect bonding techniques. My favorite aspect of my job is when my patients learn to trust my compassionate care through treatment, and learn to love their smiles again!

Outside the office, my life is full of the antics of my husband Sean and our three fast-growing teenage boys. We also have a Beagle and two cats.



Certified Orthodontic Assistant

I began my dental career in 2003, after graduating from VCC’s dental assisting program and completing an orthodontic module at UBC. I have worked at Budd Orthodontics since 2013, doing orthodontic adjustments and taking care of clinical duties. I love working with children and teaching them about the importance of dental care. Seeing their beautiful smiles makes me appreciate my job even more.

In my personal life, I am a wife and a mom of two amazing girls. They teach me something new every day and make my life complete. I love to travel with them and show them all the beautiful places around the world. In winter, I enjoy skiing with my family in the gorgeous mountains of British Columbia.




Welcome to Budd Orthodontics! From our front desk, I’m the first friendly face our patients encounter when they come to our office. I greet everyone with a smile, schedule appointments, and answer the phones. The best part of my job is getting to know our patients and seeing their new, beautiful smiles. Our patients are always so excited, and so are we!

I am a mother of two who enjoys creating new meals in the kitchen, hiking on the weekends with my family, and spending some down time reading a good book. I also love to travel and explore new cities around the world.



Certified Orthodontic Assistant

I joined Budd Orthodontics in 2017. I assist with patient care by setting up trays/rooms, sterilization, and working one on one with the patients doing wire adjustments, bonding brackets, fitting appliances, and removing them. Of course, I also help remove braces and reveal patients’ new smiles, which is the best part! I enjoy getting to know each individual personally and revealing his or her beautiful smile once it is all finished. I love seeing people’s reactions!

I am happily married to my husband Theo, and we have recently just had a baby boy whose name is Körver. We have two Dobermans, Lebron James and Russell Westbrook, and one Savannah cat named Kobe Bryant. As you can see, our family loves basketball and you can always catch us watching a game. When we’re not doing that, we love to spend quality time as a family.
