Irene has been in the orthodontic field since 1979. "Every day I learn something new and that makes my job fun and interesting at the same time. I love my job and have had the opportunity to work with some amazing people in this business. I have made friends with my patients, not many people can say that in their business and I feel truly blessed because of it. My co-workers are a great team and we all strive to be the best in our field. I am married to my husband Mike and we have a blended family that has been an amazing journey! We love to be in the great outdoors doing whatever it takes as long as we can be outside, yes even in the rain we find time to go boating, fishing and crabbing."
