CARRIE

Office Manager

Carrie graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor’s degree, and has been with Greenhaven Family Dental since 2008. She regularly attends the Annual Conference of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM).

She loves keeping up with patients’ lives during their dental visits, hearing about their families and travels, and sharing in their joys and sorrows. When she’s away from the office, Carrie routinely volunteers for her local church.

Although Carrie enjoys sewing, hiking, biking, hand-embroidering, and reading, her favorite pastime is spending time with her husband and three children.
