How can you leave a place like Amelia Island? That is exactly my question! I am a true native of Fernandina Beach, born on the island and attending the public schools here. I enjoyed growing up on the beach with my four brothers. My love for swimming and all things involving the water eventually led to several great summer jobs, lifeguarding and teaching swimming lessons. In a quest to experience the city life I attended Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia after graduating from Fernandina Beach High School. My chemistry teacher inspired me to seek a degree in chemistry and, later, I decided to follow my fathers footsteps into the field of dentistry. Having experienced orthodontic treatment as a student, I was excited to pursue a degree in orthodontics and was accepted into the residency program at Emory. There, I met my husband and eventual partner in practice, Dr. Tod Garner. Returning to Amelia Island was our goal and we established the first of four offices in north Florida. I am very blessed to have been raised in such a wonderful community and to have been allowed to raise our four daughters in the same family-friendly environment. I believe orthodontic therapy is a tremendous gift and practicing orthodontics is the perfect career.As a Jacksonville, Macclenny and Fernandina Beach, FL, orthodontist, orthodontics is mypassion.

I grew up in coastal North Carolina and always dreamed of living on or near the water. Some of my best memories are of fishing, clamming and boating with my family near the southern tip of the Outer Banks. As a student I managed to excel in science and math, even though my mind was usually on playing in the next basketball, baseball or football game. As a senior, I was excited to learn that I was accepted to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and enjoyed my years there (Michael Jordan made basketball games fun!) as a chemistry major and graduated from the UNC School of Dentistry.
During college I was fortunate enough to have orthodontic treatment. It was then that I learned about a career that would become my goal. This dream led me to a residency at Emory University in Atlanta. But, little did I know it would also lead me to my wife and a new home in Florida. I met my wife and partner, Suellen, in the dental school library. After we completed our residency programs, we moved back to her home town in Florida. Fortunately, it led me back to the coast where we have enjoyed raising four daughters and when time has allowed, boating and fishing. I feel blessed to practice with my wife and two fantastic partners, Dr. Valerie Minor and Dr. Brad Mokris. As Jacksonville, Fernandina Beach and Macclenny, FL, orthodontists, orthodontics is our passion.

I did not always want to be an orthodontist. I did consider dentistry or possibly medicine as a career choice after completing a 9th grade science project on Which toothpaste whitens the best ?. However, when it was time to go off to college, I could not imagine going to school for another 8+ years, so I decided to get an engineering degree. After graduating from North Carolina State University with degrees in Chemical Engineering and Pulp and Paper Science, I was fortunate to get a great job working for Rayonier in Fernandina Beach, FL, near my hometown.
After a short time working in the manufacturing industry, I decided that this was not for me. While working at Rayonier, I spent some time shadowing Dr. Suellen Rodeffer in her orthodontic practice. I realized very quickly that this was a profession that I would love. It seemed to combine the engineering that I had learned with the interaction and care for people that I was missing in a manufacturing facility. I was amazed to see the changes that could take place and the smiles on the faces of Dr. Rodeffers patients when they would leave her office. At that time, Dr. Rodeffer joked with me that one day I would come back and be one of her partners. Little did I know that God was planning that very path for me.
With the blessing of my wonderful husband, I made up my mind to pursue that goal. After taking several prerequisite courses while still working for Rayonier, we packed up and moved to Gainesville, FL, for 7 years of training at the University of Florida. I am so blessed that God saw fit to lead me down this amazing journey. I joined Rodeffer and Garner Orthodontics in 2006, and my husband Will was able to teach and start the baseball program at the newly opened Yulee High School. We became Rodeffer, Garner, and Minor Orthodontics shortly thereafter, and now we have changed the name again to Coastline Orthodontics with the addition of Dr. Mokris to our practice. My husband, Will is part owner of Netting Professionals, a business that specializes in sports netting and supplies for recreational leagues, high schools, colleges, and pro sports teams. We have 4 amazing children named Harper, Savannah, Ava, and Addison (twins). Needless to say, our kids keep us very busy, but they are the joy of our lives.
When I am not at the office or at one of our childrens activities, I enjoy going to the beach, exercising, reading, and watching sporting events especially Gator football and baseball. I am so blessed to be aMacclenny, Fernandina Beach and Jacksonville, FL, orthodontist, in such a beautiful area with amazing people. I enjoy getting to know our patients and watching the transformation that takes place as they develop more confidence in their smiles. We hope that you will feel comfortable in our practice, and we appreciate the trust that you have placed in us to take care of your smile.
