I just love being part of the orthodontic field! I met Dr. Altschul when we came in for a complimentary exam for my oldest son. Shortly after I received the opportunity to work alongside Dr. Altschul and his team of professionals. I couldn't thank him enough for the opportunity and for helping my son achieve the smile he deserves!
My husband and I have 3 outgoing children! We love to be outside as much as we can. We enjoy camping, canoe/kayaking, and fishing. I also enjoy photography, hanging out with my friends, attending Bible study, and napping in my spare time.
I am grateful to work with a team that provides such a professional, fun, and friendly atmosphere where our patients come first. You never have to search hard for a friendly smile or face in our office! I love getting to meet all of our new patients and help them start their journey toward a beautiful and healthy smile. I am the first one you will see at your initial visit, and I will go over the treatment plan Dr. Altschul has customized for you and guide you to get your treatment started. We serve incredible patients and I enjoy seeing how the care we deliver improves their lives.
I am a Crawfordsville native, and I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My hobbies include photography, traveling, watching college football and basketball, and trying new restaurants.
I work behind the scenes at Altschul Orthodontics, so I don’t get to see many of our patients at the office. But when I see our patients out in the community, I do get to hear their compliments about our practice, Dr. Altschul and our team, and the wonderful smiles we create!
I have the honor to delivering care packages to our Brownsburg Partners: schools, dentists, and patients. It’s a lot of fun to bring a smile to people. I order supplies, talk with vendors, and make sure the staff is taken care of so they can concentrate on what’s important: our patients’ happiness and their smiles.
Dr. Altschul and I have been married since 2000. We have five wonderful daughters. We recently adopted a gerbil, but don’t worry, the girls made sure it is a female, so their Dad would remain King of the House! I love to go swing dancing with Aaron, as well as trying new ethnic restaurants; Ethiopian food is my current favorite. I’m active in the Mom’s Group at St. Malachy, and Aaron and I lead numerous Financial Peace University classes there.
I like watching our patients move through treatment and seeing the joy on their faces when they see their finished smile. They can’t stop looking in the mirror, grinning and laughing, and I am smiling right along with them. They’re going to love that smile for the rest of their life! I assist Dr. Altschul during appointments, and take radiographs, impressions, and pictures. I also place, tie, and untie archwires. I handle some of our office ordering and external marketing tasks, too. And I work in the lab making retainers and sending out models for appliance fabrication.
When I’m not working, I love time with my family and friends. We enjoy games, crafts, camping, canoe trips, and watching movies. I have a cat, Kershaw, who’s named after a Dodgers pitcher.
I enjoy watching everyone’s smile change and the confidence they gain throughout their orthodontic treatment. You will see me placing and removing archwires, and I assist Dr. Altschul during appointments. I also take radiographs, impressions, and pictures. I also help with making retainers, and pouring/trimming models in the lab.
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my sisters and nephews. I enjoy traveling, swimming, fishing, and overall just spending quality time with close family and friends.
I'm so excited to see the changing smiles and progress for all of our patients! I was even a patient of Dr. Altschul as a teenager! Dr. Altschul and our team really enjoy getting to know our patients and like to make the office friendly and fun. Our biggest goal is to make beautiful smiles that are full of confidence! My part in the process consists of assisting during procedures, taking patient records, doing intraoral scans, and helping in the lab.
My life outside the office consists of spending time with my fiancé Ryan. I also enjoy spending time with my Great Pyrenees pup Kalee and my cat Mercy.
Sterilization and Lab Technician
Having worked in orthodontics for over 30 years, I have a natural enthusiasm for this field. I enjoy the process from beginning to end! When I moved back home to Indiana after 30 years in Michigan, I was thrilled to join such a hard-working team of professionals at Dr. Altschul's office. We are dedicated to serving our patients and the community, and show a special compassion toward our patients. We operate in a fun, light-hearted manner. I am in charge of keeping all the instruments and equipment sterilized and disinfected. When working in the lab, I pour and trim our plaster models. I also fabricate retainers and manage the shipping and receiving of orthodontic appliances. You will also find me assisting the clinical staff with x-rays and impressions.
I have been married to Steve for over 36 years. We have a son and daughter, and also our Golden retriever, Layla. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, fitness, and outdoor activities like hiking and traveling. Most of all, I love to spend time with family and friends.
