Tara is our resident renaissance woman. You’ll see her smiling face at the front desk, in the consultation room, making arrangements with your insurance, and making–yes, making–cotton candy at a local movie night. She is a master chef, bargain shopper, dancer, and singer…just ask for a demo next time you’re in the office! When she’s not making your experience at PFO fantastic, you can bet she’s at home with her family eating popcorn and candy and watching the latest Marvel movie.
Everyone gets excited when Naomi walks in! She always comes bearing gifts of PFO swag, goodies, or our signature flavored butter. Naomi is tasked with the challenge of helping our outstanding patients to find us; talk with her for five minutes and you’ll learn her passion for PFO runs deep! She’s a party planner, gift giver, and just about the most friendly person you’ll meet. Naomi’s favorite place to be is at home with her husband and son.
Kathryn works her magic behind the scenes at PFO managing accounting, coordinating schedules, recruiting talent, and maintaining our online presence. She occasionally finds time to stop by the office to grab lunch next door at Romano’s and steal a warm cookie from the front. She is super lucky because she gets to hang out with Dr. P both at work and at home with their three adorable kids. She enjoys cooking, playing the harp, and spending time outdoors.
Who’s sweeter than PFO cookies and lemonade? It’s our orthodontic assistant Julie! She keeps the back-office and Dr. Peterson organized to perfection. Her specialties include helping you choose the perfect color of bracket ties, clipping your wires just right, and giving sage advice about how to overcome those sore teeth after an adjustment. Julie enjoys baking, gardening, and spending time with her husband and kids. If she’s ever missing from the office, chances are you can find her in Sedona watching Seven Brides for Seven Brothers on repeat.
