About Our Dental Staff
Patient Coordinator / Office Manager - Leesburg office
I have been a part of the office since August 2008. As a second-generation Russian who grew up in New Jersey, I am fluent in both Russian and English. I enjoy coming to work and helping our patients receive the care they need and making their office visit a comfortable one for them. Like the rest of our team, I take pride in knowing the quality of care that we provide. Outside of the office, I like horseback riding and spending time with my husband of 25 years and our three beautiful children.
Marketing and Business Development
I joined our practice in May of 2008 as front desk and then office manager of our Gainesville Location. My role has since evolved and I am now the Professional Relationship Director (PRD) for the practice. My focus is on the needs of each referring doctor and my goal is to optimize their relationship with NOVA Perio Specialists. I organize continuing education meetings through lectures, lunch & learns, doctors study clubs and hygiene study clubs. I believe that the best relationships are built on accessibility, clear communication and trust!
I grew up in NYC but have been living in Northern Virginia since 1998. In my spare time I enjoy exercise, travel and living “lake life” at our weekend get-away on Lake Anna.
Hygienist - Sterling, Leesburg, and Gainesville
I have been part of the practice for over five years as a hygienist. After growing up in New Jersey, I received my BA in economics from Syracuse University and then went on to earn my BS in dental hygiene from Thomas Jefferson Unversity in Philadelphia. In addition to providing excellent patient care, I enjoy spending time with my daughters and husband, cooking, travel, live music, reading and volunteering my time with many organizations.

I have been with the practice twice, first in 2009-2010 and again since August 2014. I have been in the dental field since 1998 with a small hiatus of 2.5 years to practice as a massage therapist. I enjoy helping patients to reach their optimum dental health and continue smiling. I am a Virginia native, growing up in Culpeper County and I attended University of Virginia at Wise where I obtained my associates degree in Biology. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my two daughters and our 2 dogs, reading and hiking.
