- Why Shafer?
I started creating beautiful smiles over eight years ago as an assistant for Orthodontist, Dr. Shafer. Now, as the Financial Coordinator, I can answer any questions about your insurance, help you work out a payment arrangement, and keep you up-to-date on happenings in the office. Being the best part of the patient’s day is what makes me love coming to work and being with the Shafer Smiles Orthodontics Team. When not creating beautiful smiles, I love spending time with my husband and two girls.
I have been with the Shafer Smiles since 2013. Prior to working for Orthodontist, Dr. Shafer, I worked for my family owned business. Family is my number one priority and I enjoy spending time with everyone. I also enjoy spending my spare time cooking, caring for my animals and being with my friends.
My primary role as treatment coordinator at Shafer Smiles is to ensure a successful orthodontic experience from initial examination, to treatment consultation, and coordination of financial contracts. I enjoy the passion and teamwork in our orthodontics office and I love participating in the transformation of a great smile. I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor of Science. I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and two daughters.
I have been part of the Shafer Smiles orthodontics team since 2000. Being part of this Shafer Team has enabled me to use my compassion and patience to help my patients feel at ease during their visit. I enjoy spending time with my husband Casey, and daughter Mya.
I have worked in the dental field for two years prior to joining Shafer Smiles Orthodontics Team as an orthodontic assistant. I have been with Shafer Smiles since 2010. In my spare time I enjoy being with my family and helping in the community. Also, enjoy traveling to tropical areas and being able to see the world. I enjoy laughing with my patients and celebrating the end results with them. Look for me at your next appointment in our orthodontics office to brighten your smile!
As the observations coordinator, I see of our all patients that aren’t quite ready for orthodontic treatment. Since we only see these patients a couple times a year we have a pretty awesome kids club that I take care of. I love trying to make visiting our orthodontic office fun and something they can look forward to. I enjoy shopping, sports and most outdoor activities, buy my favorite down time is hanging out with my friends and family and helping out on our family farm.
Although I am one of the newest faces to join Shafer Smiles; I have been in the medical field for six years, which includes oral surgery. My fun spirit brings fun and laughter to the office. The greatest part of my job is getting to meet new people and seeing the outcome of our patients. I love spending time with my son Tucker and husband Jake, along with many other friends and family.
