I have been the financial coordinator for Hanis Orthodontics since 2000. I enjoy working with families and insurance companies to make sure that our patients’ financial needs are comfortably met. What I love most of all is seeing our patients’ beautiful smiles when their treatment is completed. My husband, Ken, and I are proud parents of our two grown children and proud grandparents to our wonderful grandchildren.
My name is Kelley and I have worked in the front office of Hanis Orthodontics since May 2015. My husband and I moved to Katy in 2014 and hope to plant solid roots in this great community. I love my job because of the positive interaction I have with the patients and their families. It gives me such joy to make the visits to our office easy, worry-free and FUN! In my spare time I enjoy reading, running and raising my rowdy baby boy and pocket beagle, Gunner.
My name is Mary J and I have been honored to work at Hanis Orthodontics since 2011. It is my privilege to greet you as you enter our office, talk to you on the phone, or help you make a cup of coffee. I love getting to know our patients and their wonderful families. I am a native Texan and have been happily married to my college sweetheart since 1975. (Gig’Em Aggies!) We have been blessed with three beautiful daughters and four wonderful grandchildren. They keep me smiling and are a joy in my life. If you have not been to our office, please come by and let me show you around. You are always welcome here.
I was born in New London, Connecticut while my dad served in the Navy. I grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho and married my high school sweetheart where we raised our 5 children for 16 years. I have had braces twice! After seeing the great results my daughter had with Hanis Orthodontics, I became a patient. Working at the office, I love the new friendships created with each new family that joins our practice. I love seeing our patient’s self-esteem grow as we help them create a healthy beautiful smile. I also feel blessed to be a part of such an amazing team!

It brings me great joy to help create beautiful smiles and friendships. I am happily married and a mother to two wonderful children and one handsome grandchild.
I was born in Larchmont, New York. I decided to go into the orthodontic field after seeing my daughter, Kayla, go through her Phase I Treatment. It was such a positive experience and I loved learning about everything at her appointments. Being able to see the transformation that our patients go through during treatment is one of the reasons I love working at Hanis Orthodontics and the other is that I get to work with the sweetest team around!
My name is Janet, and I have been blessed to be a certified orthodontic assistant at Hanis Orthodontics since 1985.

I was born and raised in Corpus Christi and moved to this area in 2001 with my husband and two boys. When not in the office, you can find me at sporting events with the boys or with neighbors and friends. I love spending time by water any chance I get! My favorite part about my job is seeing the patients grow up right in front of our eyes!
I am originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and moved to Sugarland in 2001. My interest in orthodontics stems from the combination of technology and patient interaction. I enjoy seeing the beautiful smiles created here!
