Office Coordinator and Insurance Coordinator/HR

I started working for Lakeview Orthodontics in 1991. I love all of my work and am most satisfied when I know that people are confident in my abilites. I want our patients to know that they can depend on me to handle their accounts accurately. I know that Dr. Schmidtke cares about our patients and wants them to have an enoyable experience.

I am married and we have one daughter and one granddaughter. My hobbies include exercise, yard work, and snow skiing!

I started working in the dental field in 2019. I answer phone calls, schedule appointments, and take payments from patients. Also, I help translate for patients/parents who cannot speak English.

I have always wanted to work in a dental office. The Dr and the rest of the team are great to work with. I have and will continue to learn from them every day. I love to work in this amazing environment. All of the coworkers don’t hesitate to help with any questions I have.

I am from Albertville, Alabama. I have a daughter named Juliet and she is almost two years old. I’m also engaged to a great guy! We have been together for three years. I love to work out to release some stress. Family is the most important thing to me.

My favorite part of my job is seeing our patients develop beautiful smiles through orthodontic care. I love watching them get a fabulous result and seeing the confidence it builds. It is also great to be working with my best friends! Dr. Schmidtke cares tremendously for our patients and staff. Even with the amount of education he has, he is still down to earth. We are like a family.

I have three children and five grandchildren. I enjoy living on a farm and like to travel, especially to the beach.

Since starting in March of 2001, I have been a clinical manager, assistant, financial coordinator, and front desk receptionist. I am a certified orthodontic assistant by the AAO. In the orthodontic field there is something to learn everyday, and no two patients are the same. I enjoy being part of making someone smile as their confidence grows throughout their orthodontic treatment.

I have been married to my bestfriend Jeremy for almost 15 years. We have three awesome kids between us. Our oldest son, Jayme now serves our beautiful country in the Army as an Aviation Mechanic, and he is also married with two children. We have a thirteen year old daughter, Kinslea.

We as a family love to spend our time together either hunting, fishing, hiking, or just at home watching movies or playing games.
