As an orthodontic assistant, I enjoy working hands-on with our patients and seeing the end result and the smile on their face after they are done with treatment. I’ve worked with Get It Straight Orthodontics since 2004 and love helping patients achieve their perfect smile! Seeing how happy patients are at the end of their treatment is the best!

My great nephews are like my own and I spend a lot of my spare time with them. As far as hobbies go, I like to cook and take my nephews to the movies!

I have been in the field of orthodontics since 1974 and with Get It Straight Orthodontics since 1994. I coordinate our patients’ treatment plan and financial arrangements and serve as a liaison for patients with questions or concerns throughout their orthodontic experience. Working in the field of orthodontics is so rewarding. I love being a part of giving a patient a beautiful smile, and I appreciate the lifelong friendships I’ve develop over the years with our patients and my team.

I have two grown children and three grandchildren who live in California, so I frequently travel there to visit them. My love at home is my rescue Jackson. He has been a member of my life for almost seven years and has brought me so much joy. In my free time, I love to garden, spend lots of time outside, and binge-watch Netflix.

My favorite part of orthodontics is seeing the amazing results; the before and after pictures are unbelievable! I love numbers, so insurance billing is a great fit for me.

We look forward to having you bring us your smile!

I have been the office manager with Get It Straight for ten years and have been in the orthodontic field since 1991. One of the most rewarding parts of being a part of Get It Straight Orthodontics is the happiness and appreciation our patients give us for what we do. As an office, we enjoy making people more confident in themselves and helping them achieve better bite function. My coworkers and our easy-going patients make it a pleasure to be here each day.

At home, I have two children, ages 13 and ten. I love music, art, culture, and I’m a bit of a foodie. I enjoy volunteering, especially when it includes my children. We also enjoy the outdoors such as camping, hiking, and exploring.

I love visiting my family back in Michigan, doing things like playing tennis and hiking and playing overly competitive ping-pong games with my four younger brothers. On weekends, I like to spend time with friends exploring new parts of the city or watching our favorite movies. I like to stay active by running, playing volleyball, and taking trips to the dog park on nice sunny days with my fur baby Kaia.

Office Manager - Hyde Park/Orland Park

I've been with Get It Straight Orthodontics since 1997, where I currently work as the office manager. My favorite thing about orthodontics is starting out with a patient and seeing the finished result, feeling that you had a hand or part in making the patient get the result they were looking for. I also love working with Dr. Warshawsky and our team. We strive to provide the best quality of care to our patients.

I am married to my husband Mark and have three boys and two granddaughters. My oldest son and youngest son are United States Airmen, while my middle son works for a hazardous chemical company. I can say as parents we raised pretty good kids! In my free time, I like family gatherings, as I get to host for most of the holidays, as well as jogging, riding bikes, and traveling.
