Meet The Goings Orthodontics Team
Adriana – Orthodontic Technician
I have been with Dr. Goings since 2016, but I have been working in orthodontics for a little over 5 years. I have a daughter that was born in 2015 and I was just recently blessed with my son in December. When I’m not working I’m spending time with my family. I am very passionate about what I do and am excited to help you along the way to your new smile!

When I’m not at work I’m spending time with my wonderful family. I have been married for 32 years to the love of my life – Steve. We have 3 beautiful grown girls that are my pride and joy. I love outside activities (hiking, skiing, camping, biking, boating), and traveling. I have lived here in Colorado for 16 years and am originally from Stuart, Florida.
Bonnie – Scheduling Coordinator
Howdy ya’ll! I’m Bonnie and I’m a TEXAHOLIC! I was born and raised in the Lone Star State. I love my job at Goings Orthodontics as the scheduling coordinator. I enjoy meeting new people and making new friends. In my spare time I’m a taxi driver for my 3 kids. I love cook’n for my kin and try’n new recipes. I love ALL things outdoors, but most of all; I enjoy boating with my husband and having a nice cold beverage. I will bless your heart at some point, if I haven’t already.
Ya’ll come back now, ya hear!
Dawn – Public Relations Coordinator
Hi, I’m Dawn, the Professional Relations Coordinator for Dr. Goings since Dec. 2015. I grew up in North Dakota and lived there until Colorado stole my heart in 1999. I have 2 children, Jack and Lily. We love spending our time with family and friends. In the summer you can catch us on a hike or having ice cream downtown. In the winter, snows the limit! I am so happy to be a part of the Goings Ortho Team!
Destanie – Orthodontic Technician
Hello! My name is Destanie. I joined this wonderful team in January 2017 and have been in the orthodontic field for almost 3 years now! I chose orthodontics because I love being able to connect with my patients and watch them grow over their treatment. My patients mean so much to me. I have an amazing husband and we have two dogs, Abril and Duke. Cody is my high school sweetheart and we were married in August 2018! We enjoy spending time with family and love to be outdoors hiking, hunting or exploring. I look forward to meeting you.
Jody – Clinical Director and Lab Technician
Me llamo es Jody. As our lab technician and clinical assistant, I am responsible for making many of the appliances we use as well as making stone models of the teeth with the impressions taken by our team! I love talking with patients, learning about their interests, and getting to know each one of them personally. Being a part of the process to help our patients’ smiles improve is so rewarding, and working with this team is like working with family. I am originally from San Diego and still huge Chargers fan. I love to ski, bike, bake, and read (not at the same time). My daughter, Amy, and son-in-law G-Money (Greg) have given me two granddaughters who are tied for my favorite people in the whole world. I have been doing this over 40 years and have been with Dr. Goings since 2008. OMG!
Karen – Treatment Coordinator
Hello, my name is Karen! I have been working in the orthodontic field since 1978, so you do the math.. (; I am certified in the state of CA, TX and have had the opportunity to work in IL, FL and CO as well. All my travels have been by choice… mostly to stay one step ahead of the federales, which they have me listed under numerous allies. Can you guess my real name? In all honesty, my passion is making people feel good about themselves and one way is being a part of giving them a beautiful smile. I love spending time with my family, friends, hiking, biking and paddle boarding with my dog Miss Molly.
Kathryn – Office Manager and Treatment Coordinator
Hello! I am Kathryn. I met my husband, Brad, in England where we enjoyed traveling the countryside and visiting Europe when we were not working. We moved to Colorado in 2004 to begin our stateside adventure. I’ve been working at Goings Ortho since it opened in 2007 and have loved every minute. It has changed my life and I can’t stop smiling. Twins joined us in 2010 and they have changed our lives even more! Lincoln and Brittyn are inseparable, very lively, and full of laughter and giggles.
Lea-Ellen – Orthodontic Technician
Hey, I’m Lea-Ellen! I just started my journey here at Goings Orthodontics but have been an Orthodontic Technician for 7 years. I’m originally from British Colombia, Canada but have been in Colorado most of my adult life. Summer is my favorite season because I enjoy boating at Horsetooth, tanning and being outside! When I’m not enjoying the outdoors I’m either at the gym, shopping, or hanging out with my cat Jamison. I’m a very outgoing person who loves teeth and being a part of beautiful smiles! I can’t wait to meet you!
Marci – Orthodontic Technician
Hello All! My name is Marci and I started working with Dr. Goings and our team in May 2015. Our patients are wonderful and I am so blessed to be a part of this team! I love working in Orthodontics and building a relationship with each family that walks through the door. I have three beautiful daughters and an amazing husband that keeps all of us girls in line! Our yellow lab, Buddy, is full of energy always brings a smile to everyone’s face. We love to go camping and ride ATV’s through our gorgeous state. I look forward to meeting you soon and helping to make your smile one that will last a lifetime!
Meghan – Treatment Coordinator
Hi! My name is Meghan and I love meeting new families here at Goings Orthodontics. I have been working for Dr. Goings since June of ’09 and I love it. Outside of work I love spending time with my family, especially my husband, Gavin, our amazing son, Isaiah and our beautiful daughter, Mayah. I love participating in and watching sports of all kinds and being outdoors. I have a special love for Africa and helping those in need. It is not uncommon to see me with a Starbucks or Dr. Pepper in my hand.
Samantha – Scheduling Coordinator
As the scheduling coordinator at Goings Orthodontics, I schedule our patients’ appointments and answer their questions when they or their parents call the office. I have worked for Dr. Goings since 2013 and have enjoyed every minute. I love every new smile I’ve seen. I love talking with our patients and becoming a small part of their lives. I moved to Colorado in 1977 from Sioux City, Iowa. So I have lived here forever and just love the mountains. I am married and we have 3 fabulous girls. In my spare time, I am the biggest cheerleader for my girls. All 3 participate in volleyball, basketball and track. My oldest daughter attends UNC. I am so proud.
