Kiva Leibowitz

Office Manager

Kiva is the Office Manager at Charles St Dental and has known Dr. Lee since 2020. With over 10 years of experience in administration and office management roles at a variety of companies in youth sports, education, technology, start-ups, and venture capital, Kiva feels right at home working at Charles St Dental. With her experience and a 5-star customer service course from the Ritz Carlton under her belt, Kiva brings a positive and happy demeanor to work with the goal of making every patient's experience the best it can be.

Kiva grew up on Cape Cod and graduated from Wheelock College with a degree in Elementary Education and Psychology. As a former nationally-ranked synchronized figure skater, Kiva still enjoys being active: hiking, skiing, and walking her dog, Zeke, around the city as much as possible—or slowing down: reading or knitting baby blankets while watching documentaries.
