Treatment Coordinator

I joined the team in 2005. I assist Drs. Chumak and Zhylich at our patient’s initial consultation. I inform patients and their families about their orthodontic treatment with regards to appointments, needed procedures, as well as coordinate consultations with other specialists that may be needed for treatment. I enjoy interacting with patients and staff. The reason I love working with our doctors and the ladies is that over the years we have developed a strong relationship like a family, which allows us to work through our busy workday.

I enjoy family life, which is challenging and changing with two children and an Aussie. When time permits, I enjoy figure skating, downhill skiing, and volunteering with my daughter’s theatre group.

I joined the team in 2001. I ensure that we have a smooth-running office and that all the needs of our staff are met as well as taking care of our new patients to the practice. In addition, I attend to the correspondence of both doctors. Occasionally, you will meet me at the front desk helping to schedule your appointments or speaking with you on the phone. My favorite part of my job is integration with patients and my coworkers, as I consider them my extended family. 

I enjoy spending time with my husband, two sons, my granddog, and friends. I am an avid artist and I love my garden.

I love working with my doctor and team because we all work well together in a positive atmosphere. We all want to provide excellent care to our patients and our doctors enable us to do that by keeping current with technology and continuing education.

My husband and our two girls live on a hobby farm. On the weekends, we enjoy all outdoor activities including hunting, fishing, four-wheeling, and camping. We live a quiet life without some of modern day technologies: that’s right; no cell phones or computers!
