Claims and Billing Specialist


Hi, I’m Angela. I grew up in Ames, graduated from the University of Iowa, and have lived in Wisconsin for the past 10 years.  Although I have worked in several different areas of business, my passion has always been in healthcare.  I love a challenge and the intricacies of medical billing and understanding the ever-changing insurance industry gives me just that.  In my spare time you can find me supporting our local high school cross country team, rooting for the Hawkeyes, or traveling with my husband and kids.  I look forward to helping you in any way that I can as an extension of the great care you’ll receive in the office.



Hi, I’m Lauren!  I was born and raised in small town Iowa and have been lucky enough to call Ames home for the last 12 years.  I completed my bachelors education in the study of kinesiology at Iowa State University and my nursing education at DMACC in Boone.  I have experience caring for patients in the hospital setting and clinic setting.  When I’m not working, I like to go on hikes, bike rides, play tennis, or see a good movie (as long as there’s buttered popcorn and fountain coke!)  If I’m not doing these things, I’m probably trying to plan my next vacation to Sanibel or find a way to go to another Billy Joel or Elton John concert.  I am so excited to be a part of the Foot & Ankle Specialists of Ames team and I look forward to providing excellent care to the patients in our community!

Medical Assistant


Hello, I’m Parker. I am from Wisconsin and just moved to Iowa in January. This is my first job in healthcare, and I am loving it so far. I am a future Pre-med student and am enjoying getting experience in the medical field. I really enjoy making people’s day better if I can and making sure that they feel heard when they come into our office. I spend my free time golfing and listening to music. I look forward to seeing you in the office!

Marketing Assistant


Hi, I’m Jen. I graduated from Iowa State University with a B.A. in Advertising and have an MBA from the University of Colorado Denver. I met my husband, Joel, while we were both attending college at Iowa State. We live just outside of Ames with our four boys and two dogs. In my free time, when I’m not driving the boys to and from activities or watching them play sports, I enjoy reading, cheering for the Cyclones, and baking. I handle all the social media and help with marketing.

Are you interested in working in a small office where you are an integral part of a team? Do you enjoy working with and helping people?
