Having been an LPN for more than 20 years in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Deb Scheib has garnered her share of medical experience. Logging time in a hospital and private practices, Scheib has been involved with keeping patients well in a variety of settings, including stints in an allergist’s office, a neurology office and in a family practice.
But when she joined the staff at ENT Associates in the facial plastic surgery department and began working with Thomas Herendeen, MD, she felt something click. “I had been working in family practice, but then my physician there passed away, so when I came to ENT Associates, I was very excited to get to work in the cosmetic medical field. In the fields I’ve worked in, I think it’s my favorite,” Scheib says.
“I became a nurse because I felt like it was a career in which I could always do different things, and there would always be something new to do or to learn,” Scheib says of her entry into the medical field. “Also, I had two aunts who were nurses, and I really admired them.” A native of Fort Wayne, she attended Fort Wayne Community School, School of Practical Nursing—now Ivy Tech Community College—earning her LPN license in 1977.
