Sasha Kern, Receptionist
Hello! My name is Sasha and I have been a receptionist at The Smile Shack since December 2016! I was born and raised in our hometown, Zanesville OH and graduated from West Muskingum High School. I really enjoy cookouts with family, swimming and enjoying a scenic walk with my family. In December 2017 we added our first addition to our family, Brantley! I really love my job here at The Smile Shack and one of coming to work each day is the great atmosphere our office genuinely has.
Alexandra Antivero, Receptionist/ Insurance Coordinator
Hello! My Name is Alexandra, but everyone knows me as Aley! I was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey but was raised in Hilliard, Ohio for most of my childhood. I’ve been with The Smile Shack since September of 2017. What I like about my job is Insurance! Insurance can be a difficult thing for patients, so I enjoy helping my patients better understand their insurance and getting their claims approved. My favorite thing to do in my free time is explore the town of Zanesville and surrounding areas, considering I’m fairly new to the area and have so much to explore! I also like to take my dog, Jack, to the dog park, spend time with friends, and throw pottery.
