New Patient Coordinator
As the New Patient Coordinator, I enjoy being the first contact with patients and welcoming them to our practice! I love the fun and positive environment at Honey Orthodontics. I grew up in Gurnee and have lived here with my husband Dave, and our two sons for many years. I stay busy in my free time hanging out with family, walking our dogs, working out with friends, and reading.
Treatment Coordinator (Director of First Impressions)
My award-winning smile came from this very office, which makes it very easy for me to welcome new patients and make them feel right at home! I really enjoy giving new patients a tour of our state of the art office. I will take diagnostic photos and digital x-rays that will assist the doctor in making a thorough diagnosis of any orthodontic conditions present. We will discuss all treatment options, go over insurance and make sure all of your questions are answered. My favorite part of my being on this team is watching how braces build confidence and self-esteem. It makes me so happy to be able to be part of a team that makes smiles that last a lifetime! When I am not at the office I love to spend time with my precious little girl, biking, and doing anything outdoors.
Scheduling Coordinator & Marketing
I am one of the first people our patients talk to when they call our office so I always have a “smile” in my voice! I also greet patients when they come into our office, schedule their appointments and answer any questions they may have. It is very rewarding to see how the beautiful smiles we create can strengthen a patient’s confidence and self-esteem. I also help to plan and organize our office contests and theme weeks, and update our Facebook page. Our team is very family oriented and likes to have fun; it is rewarding to hear our patients and their families say they enjoy coming into our office. My husband and I have 3 sons, a wonderful daughter-in-law and a beautiful granddaughter. We also have 2 dogs, Lucy and Cole that keep us busy. I enjoy walking and biking, reading and spending time with friends and family.
Financial | Insurance Coordinator
As the financial and insurance coordinator, most of my duties are behind the scenes handling the insurance and financial aspects of patient accounts. Although you may not see me at your regular appointments, I am always happy to answer any questions regarding your account, insurance benefits, or discuss payment arrangements. I truly enjoy coming to work each day, and appreciate being a part of this enthusiastic, dedicated, and fun team. I love seeing the final results of patients that have completed treatment, and the confident smiles they always leave with. I have been married for ten years, have three beautiful children and one puppy we adopted. In our free time, we love to go camping, boating and taking care of our backyard chickens!

Orthodontic Assistant | Marketing Coordinator
I joined this orthodontic team in May of 2000 as a clinical assistant. For me this was a career change, yet I knew the office well as all three of my children were treated here. I have truly loved working with this warm, caring team and our very special patients. Both young and older, I love getting to know and build relationships with them from the first appointment when I help put on their braces to seeing their new smiles when I take their braces off. For many, their new smiles can be life changing. In addition to my job as a clinical assistant, I am marketing coordinator, a job I share with my co-worker Patti. The doctor and our entire team love to have fun at work and we would like patients to have the same. I help plan contests and special events for them, their parents and the entire community as a whole. We strive to make orthodontics fun and exciting for all who walk through our doors.I have been married for 30 years to my husband Steve and together we have three wonderful children. In my free time, I love to sail, bike and garden around the house.
As one of the newest member of the Honey Orthodontics team, I am so excited to start my orthodontic career at this practice. I grew up in Gurnee, and I am thrilled to be back working in the area. I graduated dental assisting school from Gateway Technical College, in Kenosha, in 2014. I knew all along during school that I wanted to go into orthodontics once I graduated. I love coming to work and knowing that I am helping patients get their perfect smile. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 18 years, and we have 2 kids and 4 fur babies. I have met so many great families, and I can’t wait to meet many more. When I am not working, I like to read, garden and watch reality TV shows – my guilty pleasure!
I have had the pleasure of assisting in the orthodontic field for the past 24 years. I thoroughly enjoy working with Dr. Honey and my co-workers because they are individuals who truly care about our patients and their teeth. We are a team who likes to have fun and engage in conversation with our patients, who, over the course of their time in treatment, end up feeling like family. Taking part in helping our patients achieve their dream smile is one of the best parts of my job. My husband and I have 2 children, 3 cats, and 1 dog. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, volunteering, and going to the movies.
