I am the other Susan at Kalamazoo Orthodontics. I have been in the field of orthodontics since 2001 and with Dr. Bowman since 2007. I am a treatment coordinator and I enjoy the technical work but also the personal side of interacting with each patient. It is great to see the transformation of people's bites and their smiles through the course of treatment. It's also enjoyable to experience the patient's eagerness to see their end results. I also love the personal side of dealing with patients and their families: being there to help them step-by-step through the process of straightening their smile.

I was born and raised in Vicksburg, MI where I still reside with my family including our three children. I briefly lived in Indianapolis where I first began orthodontic assisting. I love sports (coaching girl's basketball and soccer), cooking, decorating, and spending time with my children.
