Julie Germain – Office Manager, Treatment Coordinator

Hello to all of you! I joined our team over 20 years ago and am a proud bearer of many hats. My multi-task position is wonderful, and I love to contribute to such a positive working atmosphere that the entire staff has created here at Valley Orthodontics. Every aspect of our patients’ care is important to me, and I truly love the joy our patients express from their healthy smiles achieved by Dr. Maher and the assistants.

Away from the office, I have served on many community boards. I enjoy music and time spent in my vegetable and flower gardens. And because I am a bit of a social extrovert, I thoroughly welcome social time with family, friends and of course my Valley Orthodontic teammates. My husband of over 30 years and I value family time with our children and grandchildren. We love the outdoors and are avid sports fans.

Andrea Schmidt – Certified and Licensed Dental Assistant, Lab Technician

I’ve been a Registered and Certified Dental Assistant since 1999. I received my clinical training at Lakeland Medical/Dental Academy in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I joined Dr. Maher’s staff in April 2005. I head up the lab at Valley Orthodontics as well as working chair-side with patients. What drew me to orthodontics was seeing the beautiful smiles we create every day. It makes it all worthwhile to see the patient walk out the door with a new self-assurance. I enjoy working at Valley Orthodontics because Dr. Maher and staff are some of the warmest and most compassionate people I have worked with. Plus, we have the best patients around!

When I’m out of the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Tom; daughter, Fiona; and sweetheart of a dog, Luther. I enjoy hiking along the North Shore, running, shopping with Fiona and going out to dinner with our family and friends.

Trish Jackson – Scheduling Coordinator

In 2006 I graduated from UW-Stout with a bachelor's degree in Human Development & Family Studies.  I have a strong love for wellness and working with people.  I also carry and Associates Degree in Graphic Design.  I recall very well what it was like to have braces as a teenager and I enjoy knowing that I am helping others achieve their orthodontic goals.  It's a wonderful feeling when you see a patient leave the office grinning form ear to ear because they love their new smile.

Outside the office I can often be found writing and enjoying nature.  I love to travel and explore new places, and I cherish every moment I get to spend with family and friends.  I believe that every day is a new adventure.
