Meet the Team
We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
Front Office Team
Our front office team is here to help with all your scheduling, financial, and insurance needs. Most often, our front desk staff members are the first smiling faces you’ll see when you come into the office. They’re always available to answer any question you may have and want to make your time here as pleasant, comfortable, and stress-free as possible.
Our office team puts enormous emphasis on providing the very best customer service available to ensure that you not only get an effective and excellent outcome from your treatment, but also enjoy your time in our office.
I am in charge of all the correspondence in our office, whether from our doctors to our patient's dentists, explaining the orthodontic treatment proposal, or with insurance companies to explain why orthodontic treatment is necessary. I began my career more than 40 years ago, and have experience as a dental assistant, receptionist, office manager and bookkeeper in general dentistry and orthodontics. Orthodontics is such a unique field, as we’re quite simply here to make our patients smile. It is rewarding to know that I’m a part of that.
When I’m not at work, I like to read, work on my house, and work in my yard. I love animals, so my Doberman, Rye and my Golden Retriever, Josie are my children!
Prior to starting with AppleCreek Ortho in January, I worked in an orthodontic practice in Florida as a financial and insurance coordinator. Although I miss the winter weather in Florida, I am so happy to be a part of the ACO team! I especially enjoy meeting with patients and families to explain treatment in a way that is easily understood.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, watching movies and snuggling with my dog.
I have spent more than half of my dozen years of professional career at Apple Creek Orthodontics. It’s been a lot of fun to meet so many new people and see them transition into more confident individuals. I also have enjoyed working as a team with my coworkers. Working with the doctors and everyone else here is a lot of fun! From singing in clinic to their fancy socks, they make each day enjoyable!
I am married with two children. When I have free time, I enjoy going up north and kayaking.
I have been in the orthodontic field for over 15 years. Prior to joining Apple Creek, I was Office Manager for an orthodontic practice in Oshkosh. Most recently I served as one of Apple Creek's Financial Coordinators remotely. As ACO grew, I joined the team full time here in Appleton!
While not at work, I love to bike ride, run or hike - as long as I can be outdoors!
I joined Apple Creek Orthodontics in October 2018. My background includes marketing, administration and office management. My position as Treatment Coordinator is by far my favorite thus far in my career! I enjoy making a personal connection with my patients and facilitate their understanding of orthodontic treatment.
I am married with 3 daughters and 2 stepsons. In my spare time, I love to do crafts with my girls, walk our family dog and spend time up north!
In total I have been with Apple Creek Orthodontics for over 3 years. I left for a brief period to work in general density - to shorten my commute! When an opportunity arose at Apple Creek for a scheduling coordinator at our busy front desk, I was happy to take it !! It is beneficial to have my background in ortho when scheduling patients and answering the many questions parents/patients have about appointments.
While not at work, I enjoy spending time outdoors fishing and hunting!
Our Orthodontic Assistants
Our orthodontic assistants help to place braces, change wires, take any necessary X-rays and photographs, and give instruction on the best ways to take care of your braces or appliance. They love meeting new patients and take the time to make sure your treatment is an easy, comfortable, and all-around positive experience from the moment you enter the door.
Our assistants look forward to helping you or your child gain the self-esteem and confidence that comes with a beautiful, straight smile.
I began working in the dental field shortly after graduating from high school in 2002. I’ve been working alongside the doctors at Apple Creek Orthodontics since 2009 where we strive to give patients the best and most advanced care and experiences we possibly can.
While not at work, I love to watch my son, Jackson, in the many sports he is involved in with Tim - my better half! We also love baseball and hockey, and love to travel to watch the Chicago Cubs or the Nashville Predators
I graduated from Milwaukee Area Technical College as a Dental Assistant in 2014 and went on to get my degree as a Registered Dental Hygienist, graduating in 2016. Shortly thereafter, I worked in general dentistry as a Dental Hygienist for 3 years and then decided I wanted to change things up. I started working at AppleCreek Orthodontics in 2019 primarily removing braces and appliances. I am also double as an ortho assistant when needed- meaning no 2 days are ever the same!!
While not at work, I enjoy working out at my gym at 4:30am and tiring out my fur baby, Remy, our crazy Golden Retriever. My fiancé and I also love traveling, whether it’s up north or to a different country!
I have over 3 years of orthodontic experience. Prior to coming to ACO in September 2019, I had worked in a busy practice in the Fox Valley. I continue to enjoy the many facets of ortho and the impact I can have in changing a patient's self confidence!
I am married and have a very mischievous lab who keeps me busy! In my spare time, I like to read and spend time outdoors.
Orthodontic Assistant/Wellness Program Coordinator
I went to Fox Valley Technical College's Dental Assisting program while waiting to be accepted into the Dental Hygiene Program. After graduating the end of 2018, I worked in general dentistry before coming to Apple Creek Orthodontics in January 2019. Once here, I discovered I loved ortho so much that I decided to stay in the field !
I am known for being the horse crazy gal in the office! I reside in Menasha and when I am not at work I am showing horses, four-wheeling or boating! I also have a furry friend named Brewer who is a blue merle Austrian shepherd.
I graduated from the Dental Assistant Program at Fox Valley Technical College in December 2019. While in school, I was able to job shadow at Apple Creek Orthodontics and discovered that I liked the diversity of orthodontic treatment! I was hired full time at ACO after my graduation and continue to enjoy the world of ortho.
I was born and raised in the fox cities and enjoy spending time with family and being outdoors.
