Meet The Team


Dental Hygienst

I started my dental career in 1998 as a dental assistant with Dr. Peurach. I graduated from hygiene school in 2005 from Kellogg Community College. In college I served as a class officer and enjoyed participating in community outreach programs. I like to positively impact people's lives and help improve their oral health.

Outside of work, I enjoy outdoor activities like camping, canoeing, and spending time with her family. I have been married to my husband Mike, since 2002. We have a daughter Josie, and a son Warren.


Dental Hygeinist

Jen says if she wouldn't have gotten into the Dental Hygiene program at Kellogg Community College, she would have gone for  being a radiography technician or a UPS driver!  She graduated from KCC in 2012.

Her hobbies include buying craft supplies such as rubber stamps, sticker, and scrapbook paper.  Summer art fairs in St. Joseph and Ann Arbor are another of her interests.  Jen adopted her cat Frankie in July 2020 and he has been a great source of joy.  Jen also is an election volunteer!  


Dental Assistant


Dental Assistant

I was born and raised a Michigander and I continue to be smitten with the mitten!  I received by Certificate for Dental Assisting from Ross Medical Education Center.  The dental field was the career I chose where I could combine my love for people and my skills to help bring a smile and educate our patients here at James C. Peurach Family Dentistry.  I love working side by side with the team at this office because together we strive for excellence while keeping an upbeat atmosphere. 


Dental Assistant

Hi, I'm Roxanne.  I went to Ross Medical Education for school to become a dental assistant.  I trained here with Dr. Jim.  He and all the staff were so wonderful, when they offered me a position, I happily accepted.  All the patients have been so great and I am excited to continue my career here!

I have 2 wonderful children, 2 dogs and a cat.  I enjoy summertime and spending time with my family. 


Financial Coordinator

I've been working in the dental field for over eight years.  I have enjoyed getting to know the patients here at Dr. Jim's office for four years and counting.  I grew up in Hastings, but left as an adult while living first in Florida, then in California, for a combined 12 years.  I miss that California weather, but being back in Hastings has really been wonderful for my family.

When the sun shines you will find me outside riding bikes, long boards or jumping on the trampoline with my kids, hiking, kayaking or enjoying my back deck.  In the winter, I would rather watch movies while the fireplace warms the living room.  I love a good thunderstorm.  And someday, I hope to travel to many of the beautiful places around the world.


Scheduling Coordinator

My dental career began in 1992, when I graduated from Kalamazoo Valley Community College's dental hygiene program.  I began working in several local dental offices while raising our two children.  Shortly thereafter, I was asked to join the Dental Hygiene Advisory Board at KVCC and remained on it for more than 20 years.  It was rewarding to give back to my alma mater.

I completed my bachelor's degree in Healthcare Management from Siena Heights University in 2000 to enhance my education and give myself more career choices.  After 23 years in hygiene, I began to explore some of these options.  Ultimately that led me to Dr. Jim's dental practice, where I am happy to be part of the dental team as one of the Financial/Scheduling Coordinators.

Outside of work, I spend my days off with my husband Ron & our cat Jazzi.  Together we live in the Gun Lake area and enjoy golfing, boating, hiking and traveling.  Our travels have included Hawaii, Alaska, and Italy.  Our kids are grown and have given us three grandchildren, who we love to spoil.  Life is good!


Office Administrator

I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a BBA in 1982 and graduated from Western Michigan University with an MS in Accounting in 1990.  While I have worked in several different industries, most of my experience is in the area of health care; including dental offices, a podiatry clinic, and an accounts receivable department of a hospital in Chicago.

I started working in this office in 1978 for Dr. Carl Peurach and have been active in the office in a variety of positions, off and on since then, while raising our three sons with Dr. Jim.
