I love our patients. They are an extension of my family. I love working for the Drs’ Van Derhei: they are outstanding and do amazing work. And I love our amazing team, too, as everyone helps each other out so we can all focus on our patients’ comfort and smiles. I make sure our office runs smoothly and efficiently so the team can exceed patient expectations at every visit. I assist with patient care, work at our front desk, handle accounts payable and receivable, and marketing for the practice, too. I keep busy, but I’m never too busy for a quick chat and to answer questions. I have been a part of this dental team since 2005 and working with Dr. Wenona and Dr. Pat is such a blessing. I truely can't tell you how much fun it is to come in to the office everyday and work with such an amazing team. In 2019, I received my Fellow of the American Association of Dental Office Management. Currently, Enrolled to receive my MAADOM (Masters)
I’m a huge animal lover, with a house full of fun and fur. I’m also a member of the Athens HOG (Harley Owners Group) and I ride as much as I possibly can for relaxation. I’m a Wisconsin Cheesehead who is true to my Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Bucky. Additionally I’m a certified scuba diver and enjoy doing stained glass when I can find a free moment or two.
It’s my pleasure to assist our patients with financial matters. At VIP Family & Implant Dentistry, we want to make it possible for each patient to receive the care they need, when they need it. I work with each person to find financial terms that work with their budget. I also help them make the most of their insurance benefits. It’s a great feeling to see a person smile when they realize they can afford much-needed care! I have been helping patients at VIP Family Dentistry since 2011.
At home, my life is full with my two children, Hunter and Aubree, and our dog, Lucky. Some of my hobbies include taking pictures, fishing, and reading, but nothing beats being snuggled up on the couch watching movies!

I enjoy helping each of my patients achieve their best, healthiest, and happiest smile. It’s important for people to understand the connection between oral and overall health, so I spend a lot of time educating patients. I take my patients’ health history and necessary X-rays and clean their teeth. While doing so, I educate each person about their specific oral health. We talk about ways they can improve their home dental hygiene and keep their smile in great shape. I have been with VIP Family Dentistry since 2013.
I love spending my free time with my husband, Sean, and two girls, Sophie and Sylvie and our son Sean Jr. We enjoy being outside, planting flowers in the yard, playing with our cat, Olaf, and grilling out with friends.
