Meet Our Staff

I have been in the Orthodontic world for many years. I love watching the wonderful unveiling of a new smile. I enjoy being able to make the Orthodontic experience as seamless as possible. My mantra is: I strive to give the same enthusiasm and excitement to every patient whether they are the first or the last patient of the day. I love the beautiful Oregon seasons. I am a mother of 3 wonderful adult children. I spend my free time hiking, gardening, decorating, and volunteering in various organizations.

Aloha, my name is RaeMarie, but I go by “Rae”. I am originally from Maui, Hawai’i, and I’ve been living in Oregon since 1999. I graduated with honors from Concorde Career Institute in 2005. I smile a lot, therefore I enjoy working in the dental field. Working at Justus Orthodontics not only enhances my ability to grow in the Orthodontic field, but it also gives me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful patients and help them develop beautiful smiles. I most definitely love working for Dr. Justus and with the ladies. I am married and have amazing two children whom I love dearly. I enjoy eating and spending time with my family and friends. I miss surfing, boogie boarding and just hanging out on the beach

Hi! My name is Karin Ormachea. I am originally from Peru and I have been an orthodontic assistant for 11 years. I have lived in New Jersey, Miami and moved to Portland in 2006. It was truly my destiny to work at Justus Orthodontics. Dr. Justus had been invited to give a lecture in Peru at an orthodontic conference. She met my previous employer, a renowned orthodontist in Peru. It so happened, that Dr. Justus was in the process of opening her new practice and my previous boss told her about me! So the world is very small after all!
