Vice President of Operations
Katie is a graduate of Sangamon State University and brings 20 years of dental operations experience to Chicagoland Smile Group. She served as Director of Operations at Advanced Family Dental & Orthodontics, where she was instrumental in the group’s growth from three practices to 16, prior to affiliating with CSG.
Previously Katie was a District Manager for the Walt Disney Stores for over 7 years and received numerous awards in her division for consistently achieving the best loss prevention numbers. During her tenure, her territory’s seven stores met each of their quarterly goals and maintained a high employee retention rate, which Katie prides herself on.
Katie believes that one size does not fit all; each employee should receive a specific approach in order to gain the best results. Her philosophy in management is that you win as a team, you lose as a team, and every person plays an important role in the team’s success.
Originally from St. Louis, Katie resides in Plainfield, IL with her husband. Their son is a student-athlete playing baseball in Florida.
