Office Administration Facilitator

In our office, we work hard to verify all patient insurance before the time of appointment so you have no billing surprises. Katharine is responsible for this verification. She is also in charge of reconciling accounts payables and posting insurance payments. While she is at home, Katharine is also our primary backup for other staff members. Katharine is an accomplished ballet dancer, and is an alumna of the Mankato Ballet Performing Company and now dances with the Five College Dance Department.

Chief of Electronic Communications
Karl has been working at Madelia Optometric since July 2014. His responsibilities originally started with shredding unnecessary paperwork, and soon grew to include cleaning and sorting eyeglasses to be donated to VOSH Minnesota and verifying contact lens trial inventory. In more recent years, he has taken over the majority of office maintenance and the website. He frequently has spent time at the office working to ensure that all of the computers, phones, printers, and other electronic devices are working correctly. Karl is also actively working toward his Eagle Scout with Boy Scout Troop 25. Karl is currently attending Interlochen Arts Academy as a classical cello performance major in pursuit of his dream of becoming a professional cello soloist. As such, he now works remotely as the primary IT personnel of the office. Before attending Interlochen, Karl had danced for eleven years and was involved in the colorguard of the Mankato Area 77 Lancers. At last count, he plays at least twelve instruments, and he has frequently been heard saying “my obsession for the cello is merely due to the fact that I discovered it before the harmonica.”
