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

Karen | Office Manager
Antioch

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.

I love this team because of the fun, caring, and exciting atmosphere. My favorite part of working in the field of orthodontics is seeing the patients’ beautiful smiles when their braces come off. I’ve been apart of Orthodontic Specialists of Lake County when my daughter, Lexi started her orthodontic treatment and then a few years later I joined the team in 2001. I am a native of Cleveland, Ohio, and live in Grayslake with my husband Sal and my son Mitch. When I’m not working I enjoy reading, yoga, travel, and spending time with my family and friends.

Kelly

Kelly | Business Manager
Grayslake

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!

Tina | Treatment Coordinator

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.
