“Coming to work is something I really enjoy. It is amazing to see the smiles we change and how that change can make such a difference in our patient’s lives.”
Sarah's first experience with Dr. Chu was being a patient herself. In seeing the great care Dr. Chu delivers, she excitedly joined the team in 2002. She married her husband Matt in 2007, and their decision to start a family inspired a *break* from working outside of the home. She rejoined the the team 10 years later when all their children were in school full time. Her free time outside of the office is spend volunteering in her children's classrooms, and taxiing the kids to sporting practices and events. Aside from work and family she finds joy in exploring her "craft abilities" with her Silhouette!
Candie grew up in Racine, graduating from Horlick High School and completing a degre in Early Childhood Education from Gateway. She started with The Chu Crew as an Orthodontic Assistant in 2007 and now, her bright smile and welcoming personality can be seen at the front desk as our Scheduling Coordinator. Family is everything to Candie, but you will rarelyfind her "just sitting" at home with them. She loves traveling and experiencing new things with her husband and two kids. Even when she needs to "clear her head", you'll find her out running a few miles. When Candie isn't at work or exploring, she spends her time volunteering in her kids' classrooms and chasing the kids to sports or dance events.
"I love the relationships I've been able to develop with families over the years"
