Julie | Office Manager

I’m one of the smiling faces that you will see at the front desk. I’ve been a part of the team since 1996. I am a native of Lancaster County, PA and I live in Grayslake with my husband, Rob, and my two daughters, Mya and Tara. You may see me on the side of the soccer field and basketball court supporting my girls. In my free time, I enjoy walking, yoga and bike rides with the family, especially to Tastee Freez or they call it The Freeze now!


Karen | Office Manager

I’m the office manager for our Antioch office and have been apart of the team since 1992. Our doctors are so amazing to work for, it’s like my own family. I enjoy being one of the first people to greet our patients. The interaction with them, getting to know their families, and seeing them go home at the end of treatment with a wonderful smile is the best. I am a native of Chicago and currently live in Antioch with my husband, Steve. I enjoy warm vacations, spending time with my family and my grandchildren, walking, yoga, decorating, and entertaining. I’m also involved in our Chamber of Commerce in Antioch.


Elaine | Office Manager

I joined the OSOLC team in 2020. I started in dentistry in 1999 and love everything about helping patients love their smile. I am thrilled to have found my new work home. I live in Gurnee with my husband and 4 kids, and I really enjoy being a part of my community.


Kelly | Business Manager

I have been a part of the team since I was 11 years old, when I got my own signature smile! Braces have come a long way since I was 11; we now have fun colors, shorter treatment times, and less discomfort, but it’s still fun! My husband, Bucket, and daughters, Kaley and Kendall, and I live in Grayslake. We can often be seen at school events, sporting events, and community activities. We love our town and the people in it!


Sheila | Smile Coordinator
Antioch, Grayslake, and Gurnee

I joined Drs. Sellke and Reily and the OSOLC team in 2006. After owning my own business, I decided to return to the dental field where I previously had 10 years of experience. I first came to love OSOLC when my children were patients, and now enjoy being part of such a positive, professional team. My husband and I live in Grayslake where we raised our four sons. In my free time, I enjoy spending time at the movies and plays, going to the gym, spending time with family and friends, but I especially enjoy playing with my four grandkids.


Katie | Smile Coordinator

I joined the team in 2004. I love the interaction with patients and parents. As a Smile Coordinator I see patients come in to our office for the first time and then get to see their smiles transform. Working with this team is truly a great part of my day and I always look forward to coming to the office. I live in Wisconsin with my husband, York, and our three children, Ivan, Stella and Juliet. When I am not in the office, I am a volunteer in the local community and enjoy hiking, camping, reading, and spending time with my family.


Amanda | Smile Coordinator

I’ve been with the team since 2011, but my daughter was a patient long before I came to work here. I love working with the wonderful staff and patients who make my job fun and exciting. My favorite part of my job is seeing our patients’ faces as they see themselves for the first time with their new smile! I am a native of Hinsdale, IL, and currently live in Libertyville with my husband, Steve. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, visiting my daughter, traveling abroad, and reading.


Ruby | Smile Coordinator
Antioch, Grayslake, and Gurnee

I joined the team in 2013, and enjoy working with this great group of people and enjoy meeting new people and seeing familiar faces. I also love seeing the transformation of our patients smiles and appreciate being part of their journey when they have completed treatment. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, son and daughter, family and friends. I enjoy being outdoors and working on my garden, planting flowers and doing yard work. I also like spending time at the pool, beach, parks or any other recreational activity that I can do with my family while being able to enjoy the fresh air. Whenever possible, I like to volunteer my time at my children’s school by assisting teachers with classroom activities.


Tina | Smile Coordinator
Antioch, Grayslake, and Gurnee

Tina, or as we call her T.J., joined our team in 2013. She loves children and enjoys meeting new people and helping them through the process of obtaining great smiles. She loves the team spirit here, making each patients visit a pleasurable experience. She has lived in Gurnee for over 19 years with her husband and three kids. When she’s not in one of our offices working you will find her running around Gurnee. She has run in the last 14 Chicago Marathons and associates the training needed to achieve running across the finish line similar to seeing patients’ teeth transformed into beautiful smiles. Both take time, and dedication to achieve the final goal.


Tina | Smile Expert

I joined the team when I received my Certified Dental Assisting certificate in 1984 from the College of Lake County. I am currently a chairside assistant and quality team supervisor. I absolutely love working with and educating our patients about their teeth and seeing the beautiful transformations that happen with orthodontics. I have lived most of my life and raised my children in Lake County with my husband and we now live just over the border in Wisconsin. When I am not working, I enjoy reading, antiquing, and spending time with my family.


Holly | Smile Expert

I graduated from Swedish American Hospital as a radiation therapist in 1984, and received my Bachelor of Health Arts degree in 1990 from the College of St. Francis. After taking some time off from the health field to raise my children, I joined the team in 2004. I currently am the Smile Expert for the Grayslake office. I also am in charge of inventory and purchasing for all our offices and oversee our Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance. I have lived in the area since 1997 with my husband and three kids. I first discovered Orthodontic Specialists as a mom and loved the friendly welcoming atmosphere. It was a perfect fit to be part of the OSOLC team.

Kim | Office Assistant

I'm the office assistant for our Grayslake location. I love this job because it keeps me super busy and on my feet all day long, and it's great working with such an amazing, helpful, and fun group. Plus, we get to make people happy all day long! I have been taking my family to OSOLC for several years before joining the team in 2019. I am originally from Libertyville, and as my husband was in the Navy, we have spent time in Virginia and San Diego. We currently live in the Grayslake area with our 2 daughters. I love travel (Las Vegas and Disney World are our favorites), reading, and spending time with friends and family.
