Front Office Team:


Financial Coordinator / Administrative Lead

Tawni has been a part of the Pickard Orthodontics team since 2008. As Dr. Pickard’s financial coordinator, she enjoys seeing each patient’s excitement as they begin their treatment journey. An Eastern Washington University alumnus, Tawni has a bachelor’s degree in community health education. She has spent many years in the health and wellness field.

Tawni and her husband have two wonderful children (and one great dog named Clyde). As a family, they all enjoy the outdoors, especially taking the jeep out for a spin!


Treatment Coordinator

We welcomed back Sharee to Pickard Orthodontics in the fall of 2015! Sharee joined Pickard Orthodontics in 2008 as a clinic technician. She took a leave of absence in 2011 to pursue her education goals in Boise, where she also continued to work in the orthodontic field as a technician followed by two years as treatment coordinator.

Sharee and her amazing husband Patrick are from this area and are excited to be part of the Moscow community again. Sharee and Patrick welcomed a smiley, handsome baby boy, Austin (a.k.a. Bubba), in 2015. Sharee LOVES being a mom, and being close to her family,
(including the Pickard Orthodontics family, of course)!


Scheduling / Financial Coordinator

Emily joined the Pickard Orthodontics team in 2014. It is probably Emily’s cheerful voice you will hear when you give us a call. She brings joy and laughter to everything she does. She graduated from University of Idaho with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in Spanish. Emily loves meeting new patients and making them feel a part of the Pickard Ortho family.

She also enjoys the many perks of the area, like riding bikes, camping, and going to the many restaurants in the area with her husband.

Our fearless leader! Shannon has been with our office since the fall of 2003. As our clinic manager, she brings more than 20 years of orthodontic experience to our practice.

She and her husband, along with their beautiful daughter, live in Clarkston. She enjoys spending time in the outdoors and traveling to visit family and friends. Her favorite thing about Pickard Orthodontics is the great staff she gets to work with every day.


ACOA / RDA / Records Specialist / Clinic Technician

Dawn is one of the first people you will meet when you visit our office for the first time and get photos, X-rays, and teeth impressions taken! Dawn also helps coordinate many of the health fairs, Readers As Leaders, and community events that we participate in. She loves getting to know our patients and making them feel comfortable.

Dawn is originally from Alaska and now calls Moscow home. She enjoys a variety of outdoor activities and spending time with her three beautiful daughters.


RDA / Clinic Technician

Lacey joined Team Pickard in 2015. She grew up in Power, Montana and earned a bachelor’s degree in applied health at the University of Montana. She is excited to utilize her background in applied health to the orthodontic field. Lacey loves working with such an amazing team, meeting new people and hearing their stories, and she especially loves little kids.

Prior to moving to Moscow, Lacey worked for seven years with the U.S. Forest Service as a wild land firefighter and trail construction worker. Her years of experience in the mountains have provided her with a dedication and passion for the outdoors. Lacey’s hobbies include mountain biking,
running, swimming, and hiking through forests.


RDA / Clinic Technician

Happily born and raised in her hometown of Moscow, Tanya married her high-school sweetheart in 2014. She completed a dental assisting program at LCSC, and couldn’t be happier being a part of the Pickard Ortho Family. (We feel the same about her!)

Tanya loves animals, including her three fur babies: two dogs and one stubborn cat! The outdoors is what she lives for: bonfires, hiking, boating, fishing, you name it!


RDA / Clinic Technician

Brenda loves being a part of Dr. Pickard's "Smile Team!" She's a happy-go-lucky mother of two with a very unique voice. Native of southern California, she moved from southeastern Idaho to Moscow so her husband could pursue his Masters in Natural Resources. Her raspy voice is a beneficial outcome of a water-skiing accident many years ago. It has proven to be a great conversation starter with people turning them into instant friends. Her voice also serves as a daily reminder to how precious life is and to make the most of every day.

Her perfect day would include hanging out with family and friends, horse-back riding, playing
volleyball or river rafting.


RDA / Clinic Technician

Courtney grew up in southern Idaho and earned her bachelor’s degree at U of I in 2012. She strives to find passion in life and never to stop learning. We love having Courtney on our team, along with her great personality that will immediately put you at ease at your appointment. She also brings to our practice a lot of experience in marketing and PR.

In her free time, Courtney enjoys camping, hiking, whitewater rafting, and playing with her fur babies: Luna her energetic lab, and her kitties, Squeekes and Harley!


RDA / Clinic Technician

We love having Sepi on our team, and her extensive background in dentistry is so valuable and appreciated. Her favorite aspect of Pickard Orthodontics is working with such an energetic group of people—the energy is infectious! Sepi is enjoying the opportunity to gain experience in the orthodontic field. Sepi comes to us from Iran where she was a general dentist, and she is currently studying to become a dentist in the United States. We wish her luck with her studies!

Sepi loves spending time with her super-smart and adorable son Ryan. Her perfect weekend would include swimming or a bike ride with her son, and then making homemade pizza!


Lab Technician

Eli has called Idaho home for 20 years. He has a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the College of Idaho. He joined our team in 2013 as lab technician. Eli does a phenomenal job fabricating all of our appliances and retainers as well as managing all aspects of the lab. His favorite part of his job is helping improve patients’ self-esteem.

Eli loves taking advantage of Idaho’s amazing outdoors. He enjoys whitewater rafting, camping, and spending time with his friends and family.
