Jodi is one of our more seasoned assistants and has been a part of the Dana Orthodontics Team since November of 2006. Her sense of humor and great attitude are a blessing to all she meets. She was married in 1993, and has raised two grown children and loves her sweet dog Toby. She travels a lot with Team Faith Ministry as her son races the Arena Cross Series in the winter and the Water Craft Series in the summer. Jodi also works alongside her husband, serving as youth pastors at the Evangelical Free Church in Eaton. She loves building relationships with patients and her co-workers, encouraging them to be and do their best in all parts of life and loves the diversity of her job- each day is something different! She also enjoys the fun staff and meeting new people through working here.
Kyli joined the team in 2012 after having been a patient of Dr. Dana’s (and she has the smile to prove it!). She attended the University of Northern Colorado for two years majoring in elementary education and communications and loves spending time with her three roommates. She has been a camp counselor at Camp Timberline, and is also on the Youth Staff at Timberline Church in Windsor. In her free time, she loves to be outdoors while doing things like hiking, camping, or eating at her favorite restaurant, Café Mexicali. Kyli’s favorite part about working here is getting to know each patient individually and building relationships with the awesome people we see here at Dr. Dana’s!
Ashlee joined the Dana Orthodontics Team in the fall of 2011 while finishing her master’s degree in Exercise Physiology at UNC. Not only is she our only left-handed assistant, Ashlee is our resident fitness-guru and joke teller. She plays soccer, rides her bike, likes to ski and even climbs 14’ers! She was formerly a Level 1 CrossFit instructor at Double Diamond CrossFit and is a kind-hearted person who loves to help others. Ashlee got married in July of 2014 to her fire-fighting husband, Nat. When she is not at the office, she enjoys spending time with her family, her two pups Gracie & Lily, and being a new Aunt! She also loves cooking & trying new recipes! Ashlee is the encourager of our team, and enjoys fostering relationships with our wonderful patients. We truly enjoy having her in the office!
Tania joined our team in October 2013 but has worked in the orthodontic field since 2002. Not only does Tania handle the scheduling and logistics of our orthodontic appointments, but she has been fully trained to be an Orthodontic Assistant! Tania has been married for 18 years to her husband Joe, has one son and a new grandson, Jaxson. They enjoy spending time together as a family, but Tania is also enjoying the empty nesting phase. When she’s not at Dana Orthodontics, she and her husband love to ride bikes, spend time outdoors with their dogs in their beautiful yard and they also enjoy traveling. Tania is the singer and dancer of our team, so if you ever hear someone singing and dancing along to our tunes, it’s Tania.
Jeanie joined the team as an Orthodontic Assistant in September 2013 after moving to Colorado just previously from Nebraska with her husband, William, and their tiny, toy poodle, Merlin. They recently added two adorable blue heeler puppies, Saul and Addie, to their family. Jeanie and William were married in September 2012, and she is still enjoying her newlywed lifestyle. When Jeanie is not at the office, she enjoys reading, cooking and gardening on the Sanders’ homestead. She also loves to see all of the beautiful sights that Colorado has to offer by visiting the mountains frequently! Jeanie’s favorite thing about working at Dana Orthodontics is enjoying the company of all the happy people on the team and helping patients achieve a beautiful, healthy smile!
Erin joined our team in May of 2015 after relocating from Vail, Colorado, where she grew up. Erin graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Sociology and Psychology and also attended the Colorado School of Dental Assisting. Erin worked as a dental assistant prior to joining Dana Orthodontics in the Vail area, and enjoys getting to use her expertise on a daily basis. Erin spends her time cooking, hiking, traveling, crafts and sporting events. She even holds a World Record, but you will have to ask her about it to find out what it is! She enjoys the team camaraderie, fun atmosphere and patient interaction here at Dana Orthodontics.
Emily moved to Colorado from Austin, Texas in 2014 where she had lived all her life and recently joined our team in the fall of 2015.

Emily attended school for nutrition for a year and enjoys using her expertise by teaching health, wellness and essential oil classes. When she is not at the office, Emily loves being involved in her church and loving Jesus!
