JoAnne Schack, CFo, COA
Certified Orthotic Fitter
Certified Orthotic Assistant
JoAnne went back to school when her kids were grown and was one of the first students in the Joliet Junior College O&P Technology certificate program.
“I became very excited the more I learned about Orthotics and Prosthetics Technology. It seemed like the O & P field was tailor made for me – I would definitely be working with my hands, helping people achieve a better lifestyle, being part of an exciting, fast paced field. As an O & P Assistant, I feel that I have the best of both worlds. I get to do hands on tech work as well as assist with patients.
JoAnne obtained internship experience in practices in Rockford, Joliet, and Hickory Hills ranging from central fab work to hospital visits.
Today, JoAnne is an integral part of the Scheck & Siress Oak Park office team. She cares for patients in the office as well as area hosiptals and nursing homes. JoAnne also uses her extensive technical experience in fabricating and modifying some of the devices patients receive at that office.
