Over the course of her career, Grace has become a recognized Dental Marketing expert. She was featured as an expert on the ADA 2016 Dental Marketing Expert Panel and has authored articles in professional journals, most recently penning a Dental Marketing article for Practice Booster's Insurance Solutions Newsletter.

An accredited international speaker, Grace approaches every speaking engagement as an opportunity to educate, empower, and entertain her audience. She teaches dentists how to achieve practice growth in the most ethical and efficient ways. She inspires her audience to embrace change in order to grow. Whether connecting with an audience of 20 or 200, Grace's information can transform a surviving practice into a thriving practice. Dental Marketing is Grace’s passion and she is committed to providing you with a superior marketing and consulting experience.

In her free time Alexa enjoys spending time with her trouble maker of a Cocker Spaniel named Athena and collecting vintage beer signs. Get to know Chris Content Writer Chris, as our content writer, loves to write things about other people. Creating a story that describes your personal brand is something that brings him incredible joy. However, when he has to do the same for himself, the joy seems to magically disappear. So we’ll keep things brief. When Chris isn’t writing for our team, he can usually be found spending time outdoors with friends, playing the piano, eating, or some combination of the three. Get to know Marie Human Resources Marie claims that her cat, Luna, tells her she’s awesome every day. Coming from a cat, that’s a pretty glowing endorsement and we have to concur. As our Director of Human Resources, Marie loves the interpersonal aspect of her work and uses her strong, hands-on background in psychology to bring empathy and understanding to the role. With a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Northern Illinois University and years of experience in HR, we’re thrilled to have her as a part of our team. Among her many talents, Marie is also fluent in Spanish and showcases that by listening to Corridos every day. Her love of music inspired her to be a concert violinist for over 20 years as well. When she’s not working, Marie loves to chill out with her (supposedly talking) cat and is always down to listen to horror fiction and true crime podcasts.
