Practice Manager/Treatment Coordinator
My entire career has been dedicated to orthodontics. Over the years, I have had the privilege of working in the clinic as a certified orthodontic assistant, treatment coordinator, and office manager. Watching our patients grow in self-confidence has been especially rewarding to me with an added benefit of friendships along the way. Dr. Wilke and I have worked together since his first day of practice in 1995.
Coming into the office every day has never felt like work, it’s more like spending the day with friends who have a special purpose in mind. Besides my professional interests, I focus my time with my husband, adult children and grand-kids. My husband and I are active in our church, serve the local food pantry, enjoy traveling, and in the winter can be found on the cross country ski trails.
I started working for Dr. Wilke in 2011 as his orthodontic assistant. Over the years I have continuously expanded my knowledge in the orthodontic field through the various roles that I have served. I truly enjoy building relationships with patients while making them feel comfortable. Dr. Wilke and our team do an amazing job of creating beautiful smiles and I’m happy to be a part of it all.
In my free time I enjoy golfing, playing tennis, and spending time with my amazing friends and family. I’m also a proud Luxemburg-Casco Spartan and enjoy keeping up-to-date with their sporting teams, especially softball.
My career as an orthodontic treatment coordinator began in October of 2017. Prior to this I was in the general dental field for eight years. It is an absolute joy helping patients of all ages achieve the smile of their dreams. An added bonus being a part of such an amazing, caring, and professional team. Working at Wilke Orthodontics is meaningful which makes coming to work each day fun!
Aside from work I love spending time with my husband, Ryan, our chocolate lab, Johnny Wayne, family, and friends. In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering at church, spending weekends at the family cottage, and traveling.
In 1993 I job shadowed in a general dental practice and realized the dental field was my calling. I loved the atmosphere and diversity, and the day seemed to go rather quickly! I graduated from the dental assisting program at Fox Valley Technical College in 1994. I have been working in dental specialty office ever since. In 2017 I became a part of the Wilke Orthodontics team and it has been extremely rewarding in so many ways. Quickly I realized how people’s confidence and attitude change while their teeth become more aligned. As individuals complete their treatment they are glowing.
