Meet the Staff

Amanda – Insurance and Financial Coordinator

I am responsible for financial agreements with patients and billing for the office. I enjoy working out payment arrangements that work with each family’s budget, and navigating the problem-solving challenge insurance often brings. I take pride in my ability to make patients comfortable at our office. Choosing an orthodontist is a huge decision, and I always make sure patients and their families know how much they are appreciated.

I was born in Beloit and currently live in Janesville. I graduated from Janesville Parker High School in 2006 and I graduated from Blackhawk Technical College in 2008 with an Associate Degree from the Administrative Assistant program. I am married to Shawn since May 2012. We have two boys, Garrett and Mason, as well as three cats, Jack, Alice, and Jasper. In my spare time, I enjoy fishing, biking, walking, playing tennis, and watching movies. I also love spending quality time with family and friends.


Maria – Orthodontic Assistant

I assist Dr. Ellis with patients as an orthodontic assistant. I am proud of being friendly and patient with the families we see. I am amazed at what Dr. Ellis can do with a smile in such a short period of time. Nothing beats seeing a patient smile and say “Wow” when their braces come off.

I am married to Nick, and we have three children named Karol, Viviana, and Adrian. I also have two stepchildren, Vanessa and Nick Jr., and a dog named Doc. I was born in Rockford and attended Rockford East High School. My family currently lives in Roscoe. All of my children attend or have graduated from Hononegah High School in Rockton. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy going for walks, getting involved at my children’s schools, and rocking out to '80s music.

Kelly – Administrative Assistant

I’ve been in the orthodontic field since 1994 and I love playing a role in the improved smiles and self-esteems of our patients! I love getting to know our patients and their families. We all take pride in our ability to have fun with patients and their families. I feel so blessed to be working with Dr. Ellis and the rest of the Ellis Orthodontics team.

I live in Janesville and am an avid Wisconsin Badger fans and love going to football games. One of the biggest thrills in my life came when I went skydiving for the first time!

Cheryl – Administrative

I have been working in the Orthodontic field for more than 30 years.  At Ellis Orthodontics,  I enjoy working with our patients and getting to know their families.   At our front desk,  you may find me answering the phone,  scheduling appointments, and handling insurance and financial services.     

I was born and raised in Janesville, Wis., and currently live in Janesville with my husband, Brian.  Our twin boys graduated from UW-Whitewater with one majoring in finance & the other in accounting and both reside in Milwaukee.

I enjoy biking, walking & watching the Brewers, Badgers & Packer games with family & friends.
