Anoka Staff



Gretchen | Receptionist


I joined the Anoka team in December 2023, and it has been a blast ever since! I enjoy getting to know our patients and interacting with them, while watching their smiles transform.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend Jack, friends, and family. I recently got a labradoodle puppy; her name is Millie. I also love to be at the cabin jet skiing, or tubing.


Sue | Treatment Coordinator

I have been working for Woodlake Orthodontics since 2010. My favorite thing about my job as a treatment coordinator is meeting new patients and getting them excited about braces! I love explaining the process to patients about how braces and Invisalign can change their smile.

I have two grown children and now live in Champlin with my husband, Rick. I enjoy game night with family and friends, camping, traveling, and going to the theatre with my daughter.

Kelsey | Lead Assistant

I have been an assistant with Woodlake Orthodontics since 2014. Wow, how time flies when you’re having fun! I enjoy how every case and patient is different. It is fun to not only see the changes in patients’ smiles, but also to build relationships with them. I am consistently learning new technology and techniques that help in our patient care.

I’ve married my best friend in 2012, and we have two boys. I enjoy golfing, hanging out with family and friends, and spending summers lakeside at the cabin.


Tracy | Assistant

I love my job as an orthodontic assistant because it is so rewarding and is something I am very passionate about! I have the wonderful opportunity to improve smiles, make people happy, and help people to feel more confident. Not only do I get to give back to our community, but I get to do this while working alongside amazing people every day!

In my free time I enjoy camping and fishing with my family and horseback riding with my horse Harley.


Krista | Assistant

I have been at Woodlake Orthodontics since September 2021. I was at a general dentistry location before being here and I can’t imagine now working in any specialty other than orthodontics!

I have been with my boyfriend since 2015… Crazy, right?! I have two dogs that I completely adore, a German shepherd/collie/pit bull mix (9) and a westie (5). I can’t imagine living life without dogs. I hope to one day have a nonprofit dog rescue.


Kayla | Assistant

I have been working as a dental assistant for a little over 10 years now. I started at Woodlake Orthodontics in 2020 and absolutely love it! It’s amazing to watch our patients’ smiles transform throughout treatment and, of course, to see the final results!

My husband and I have 2 little kiddos that keep us busy. We are always looking for new activities and places to take them on the weekends. In my spare time I enjoy getting together with family and friends and finding new restaurants to try out.

Maria | Finance Specialist

I have been with Woodlake Orthodontics since 2021.  In that short time, I have learned so much and built lasting relationships with my wonderful co-workers.  We have amazing patients and it is so awesome to be able to watch them go through the orthodontic process and see the final result.  It makes me so happy when I see a patient leave our office excited and smiling from ear to ear after getting their braces off and seeing their new beautiful smile for the first time.  

I am married to my husband, Mike, and we have two amazing boys and a crazy corgi named Jax.  I love spending time with my family and friends camping, hiking and kayaking.  

Nicole | Manager

I have had the opportunity to work for Woodlake Orthodontics since 2017 and am looking forward to many years to come. I take great pride and joy in supporting the clinics and patients. The doctors and team members make my days fun and enjoyable. I feel very fortunate to be part of such an incredible team. They are all hard working, inspiring, compassionate professionals that really care about their patients. Being a part of creating a journey to give patients the confidence in their smile makes everyday worth it.

In my free time…..What’s free time? I enjoy multitasking and staying busy. When I’m not at work you can find me spending time with my family, camping, going to the lake, fishing, playing card games, and streaming a good documentary or series. I also enjoy spoiling my dog Lexi, which my kids would refer to as my fur baby!
