Clinic Receptionist

Annie Royals


Many of you have come to know our receptionist Annie by her cheerful personality and friendly voice when calling to schedule physicals or other occupational medicine-related services.

Annie is a Mitchell native who graduated from Mitchell High School and attended Mitchell Technical Institute for Accounting/Computers. After one year Annie recognized that this field was not for her and she found herself working in the medical field as a CNA for three years and then as a medical receptionist. In 2005 Annie brought her happy and hospitable demeanor to our practice.

On the home-front Annie is happily married with two beautiful children. Free time, (if you want to call it that) is spent cleaning and cherishing time while camping, swimming, hunting and playing in the snow with her family.
