At Kelley & Gardner Orthodontics, we’re always thrilled to celebrate our SmileStars—those wonderful individuals who brighten our days and inspire us with their smiles. Today, we’re excited to introduce you to our newest SmileStar, Harriet!

Family Ties and Smiles

One fun fact that makes Harriet extra special is that her dad is none other than one of our orthodontists – Dr. Kelley himself! It’s heartwarming to see the bond between father and daughter, especially when it comes to something as important as maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile. (And the playful relationship they have with each other – like when Harriet hides notes all over the office!)

Harriet shares that her favorite part about being a SmileStar is the excitement of having her picture taken and seeing it proudly displayed on the walls of her dad’s office. It’s a testament to her journey and the supportive environment she’s surrounded by.

Life Beyond the Office

When she’s not dazzling us with her smile, Harriet enjoys spending time with her family and beloved pup, Weezie, out on the boat. The water provides the perfect backdrop for creating cherished memories with loved ones.

Her weekends are often filled with adventure, whether it’s a full day of boating on Saturday or attending church and her guitar lessons on Sunday. Family and friends play a central role in her life, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

Fun Facts about Harriet

  1. Athletic Achiever: Harriet is not just a smile superstar; she’s also a competitive year-round swimmer. Her dedication and passion for swimming showcase her commitment to excellence.
  2. Musical Talent: Beyond the pool, Harriet’s talents extend to playing the ukulele and guitar. Music is not just a hobby for her; it’s a source of joy and self-expression.
  3. Happy Places: For Harriet, happiness is synonymous with being out on the boat or visiting the lake. Whether she’s hanging with her family or meeting friends for lunch on the beach, these places are where she knows she’s making memories that will last a lifetime.

Making a Difference

Harriet is not only dedicated to her own pursuits but also to serving her community. She actively participates in her school’s service club, contributing to efforts such as trash pickups and beach sweeps. Her involvement reflects her compassionate nature and desire to make a positive impact.

What Describes Harriet

If you asked Harriet to describe herself with a color, she’d choose purple without hesitation. Just like the various shades of purple, she embodies both vibrancy and serenity, making her a truly unique individual.

And if she had to select a “walk-out song” to play every time she entered a room, Harriet would opt for either “Time of Our Lives” by Pitbull or “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. These energetic tunes perfectly capture her lively spirit and infectious enthusiasm.

Happy Smiles All Around

Harriet’s journey as a SmileStar reminds us of the importance of family, community, and pursuing our passions with zest. Her radiant smile lights up the room, and her positive energy is contagious to all who have the pleasure of knowing her. Join us in celebrating Harriet, our latest SmileStar, as we continue to be inspired by her journey and the joy she brings to our practice and beyond. Here’s to many more smiles and memorable moments ahead!
