I am from Attica, Indiana. I graduated from Ivy Tech in 2007 with a degree in Dental Assisting and Expanded Duties. I have been on Dr. Rucker’s staff for eight years. I have been married for 20 years and have two wonderful kids, Jesse and Shaylynn Spivey. I am currently raising my three wonderful niece and nephews Grace, Chase and Jordan. I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and kids doing fun activities such as riding bikes, swimming, and jumping on the trampoline. I went into the dental field because I love to help people and also find it very rewarding to educate patients about good oral hygiene.
I graduated from Crawfordsville High School in 1995 and Ivy Tech State College in 1996. I have 19 years of experience in the dental field, and have been with this practice since 2005. I live in Crawfordsville with my wonderful husband Todd of 14 years and we have two boys, Thatcher and Rowan. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am active with coaching and choreographing the Crawfordsville Middle School Starlettes dance team. I also enjoy giving back to the community by volunteering at the Dr. Mary Ludwig Free Clinic, and as a dance pro for the Montgomery County Dancing with the Stars program that benefits the youth of Montgomery County. My favorite part of working for Dr. Rucker is getting to spend one on one time with patients, educating patients about their dental health, and restoring their smiles.
I am an expanded functions dental assistant and have been at Dr. Rucker’s office for eight years. I graduated from the Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1997, earning my Certification in Dental Assisting. I am married and reside in Montgomery County, with two daughters. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors and shopping. My favorite part of working at Dr. Rucker’s office is getting to perform a variety of different tasks and working with a great team.
