Business Team


My name is Cassandra and I am the Marketing Director for Runion Dental Group. I have been in the dental field for about two years and am excited to be continuing my journey at Runion Dental Group in the marketing department.

I was born and raised in Upper Arlington before spending four years in California for college. I received my degree in film producing before I moved back home to be closer to family and began working in the health and wellness industry.

I currently reside in Grove City with my two cats Shadow and Merlin. In my free time I enjoy scrapbooking, photography, and reading!


Hello! I’m Melisa and I am the manager at Runion Dental Group. My role helps to keep things moving smoothly, no matter what obstacles come our way! I love the challenges each day brings, and the teamwork that brings us together to best serve our dental family! I grew up in Groveport, Ohio and graduated from the Allied Health and Business Management Program at Fairfield Career Center.

To further my knowledge of the ever evolving field of dentistry, I frequently attend dental seminars and lectures. I currently live in Ashville with my husband Josh and two children, Alexus and Joshua. I enjoy volunteering my time to my children’s schools and sports interests. My other hobbies include: camping, baking and DIY projects.


My name is Jocelyn and I am a Treatment Coordinator at Runion Dental Group. I started in the dental field in 2015. I grew up in a small town, where everyone knew you or a family member; I like to share this feeling with all of my patients to make everyone feel comfortable. I love working with this dynamic team, and am amazed at all of the procedures we can offer to our patients.

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My husband and I love spending time outdoors, and our five children keep us very busy with their sports and activities. In the summer time I enjoy canning fresh fruits and vegetables and spending time at the beach.


My name is Jess and I am the patient coordinator at Runion Dental Group. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. I went to Bishop Ready High School and graduated from Columbus State with an event planning degree. I previously worked in the service industry for 8 years. I am so excited to now be part of Runion Dental Group to start my dental career.

I love traveling, going to country concerts, Wendy's 4 for 4's and football. Go Bucks! I also love cooking and spending time with friends and family.


My name is Amy. I am a Treatment Coordinator at Runion Dental Group. At a young age, I decided I wanted to help people achieve their goals and find joy in their lives. After high school, I attended Columbus State Community College and graduated with an Associates Degree. I started my career in social work supporting adults with dual diagnoses live independently in the community.

Seven years ago, I decided to make a career change and I found dentistry. The transition was simple. I found that I could make just as big an impact in patients lives and help patients achieve their desired smile. I have recently joined the Runion Dental Group but already feel like part of the family. Everyone on this team works very hard for their patients and has fun while doing it. I am grateful to be part of this talented group of people who share my passion for helping people.

When I am not working, I love spending time with my partner, Todd, doing DIY projects, and working in the yard. We share 4 children, 4 grandchildren, and an amazing church family. I love cooking, practicing yoga, puzzling and I have rediscovered my love of reading. I am also a huge fan of the outdoors and everything sports… especially NASCAR.

Hi! I'm Heather! I was born in Columbus, Ohio and grew up in Westerville. I currently live in Westerville with my husband, Alec and son Braylen. We have 2 dogs, Scout and Bailee. We enjoy going to the dog park and going to the Clippers games, visiting with my family and riding scooters. I studied Dental Assisting at American Dental Pro and went on to study Expanded Function Dental Auxilliary at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio. I have been in the dental field for over 15 years. Nothing is more satisfying than making people smile every day and helping them feel better about themselves. It gives me joy to see their faces light up, one smile at a time. I am truly lucky to work with such an amazing group here at Runion Dental Group 


Hello, I’m Sherri! I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. I graduated from Beechcroft High School and the Fort Hayes Career Center for Dental Assisting. I have worked at Runion Dental Group since August 2020. I love dentistry and everything about it! I have been in dentistry for over 20 years and I couldn’t think of another profession I’d rather be in. I love educating my patients and helping them overcome their fears and achieving their desired smile. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband Tayon and our wonderful sons. I also enjoy reading, exercising and going to my boys sporting events!


Hello everyone! My name is Julie and I was born and raised here in Columbus. I graduated from Madison Plains in London, Ohio. After high school I attended Dental Assistant Pro here in Columbus. I then attended Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio for my EFDA (Expanded Function Dental Auxiliary). I have been a Dental Assistant since 2009 and an EFDA since 2013.

I really enjoy meeting and getting to know each of our patients. My goal is to make every patient feel comfortable when they smile! In my spare time I like to hang out with my dog, Crush, who is an Old English Bulldog, shopping, and traveling. My favorite place to vacation is my family house in Florida.


My name is Tracy. I am a dental hygienist and have been for a little over 20 years. I joined the Beecher Crossing team and I love it here. It is a great team to be a part of. I grew up about an hour and a half north of Columbus in a small country town. I rode and trained horses and played softball. What brought me to Columbus? The Ohio State University of course. It was not until my sophomore year that I realized my future would be in dentistry. I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene. While in school, I also had the privilege of working in the Oral and Maxillofacial surgery department on campus. Once I graduated I found a job here in Columbus and never left. Like I said, I have been a dental hygienist for over 20 years and I find that I love my job just as much now, if not more, than the day I started I love helping patients achieve healthy smiles and doing what I can to help them maintain that healthy smile. I have one amazing son. He enjoys playing baseball and basketball. Watching him play these sports is my favorite past time. We also have an amazing dog named Champ. I enjoy camping, watching Ohio State football, and traveling. I prefer to travel anywhere with sun and a beach. When I think of an ideal dental office to be a part of, I look for a caring, knowledgeable and compassionate team. I have found that in the doctors and staff of Beecher Crossing.


My name is Morgen and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist. I was born and raised in West Virginia. I attended college at West Virginia University and graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor’s of Health Science degree. I moved to Columbus in 2005 and I consider it my second home. I have two children, a daughter and son. I enjoy working at Runion Dental Group because we are a large family and I’ve been with the practice for almost 9 years. I love the patients here too, they become a part of our family and I enjoy laughing and talking with them and also listening to any questions and concerns they may have and doing my best to help them feel comfortable and at ease when they are here. The things I enjoy at the practice are intra oral photography with all my patient’s teeth. Most find this interesting to see their teeth up close and I take the time to explain what I see and answer any questions they may have. Another interesting thing for patients to see is the Cone Beam image with the I-CAT equipment that allows them to see their skull in 3D and also lets us check their airway, sinus and jawbones. Most patients have not had an x-ray like this before. My hygienist roles include taking the necessary x-rays for our doctors to be able to diagnose any areas of concern or rule out any areas of disease. Also I take assessment of patients bone and gum health to determine what type of cleaning the patient will need; a regular cleaning versus periodontal therapy. I show patients through pictures, x-rays, and charting what I see and explain to them the conditions of their teeth and gums and answer any questions I can for them. Having obtained my certificate to give local anesthesia, I can make patients feel comfortable for their dental treatments or periodontal therapy procedures. My goal is to provide every patient with a good experience so they enjoy coming to see us
