Tell us about yourself and why you created a team to run/walk Laura’s Smile Mile.

Team Orthopaedic Associates of WI was formed as one of our Physician Assistants – Michelle Filzen her sister Chrissy Kind an Occupational Therapist for ATI Physical Therapy (located next to us) mother, Barb Mihm is currently battling Ovarian Cancer. In addition, Michelle’s husband Nate was cousin to Laura who this race is named after.


What is the story behind the name your team?

We named our team after our company as the majority of people on our team are coworkers with Michelle and Chrissy. OAW in addition agreed to pay for all the registrations of employees and physicians to participate.


Thanks, Rachel!
