I have been a dental assistant for six years. I started assisting chairside but have recently moved up front as patient care coordinator. I like people, so the best part of my job is getting to know each patient and making their experience here as comfortable as possible. I love the team I work with; we have become like family.

Outside of the office, I love baking, cooking, and traveling. I am married and have five children, so life is busy for me but I wouldn’t change it for anything!

I have been in the dental field for eight years, graduating from Renton Technical College as a dental assistant, and am now the office manager. My favorite part of my job is getting to know all of our patients and making sure their visit to our office is better than expected!

While I’m not at the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 25 years, Gene, and our two children, Madison and Kendrick. I also enjoy gardening, playing with our Aussie-doodle puppy Lucy, and cheering on the Seattle Mariners.

I earned my dental hygiene degree in 2010 from Shoreline College and was awarded a proficiency in periodontics award during my dental hygiene education. My favorite part about my job is emphasizing patient education and encouraging patients to achieve better dental health. It is gratifying getting to know my patients individually and personally!

In my off time, I enjoy being with my husband and our four boys, traveling, cooking, reading, and camping.

I am a dental assistant. I have a genuine passion to serve people, and one of the best ways I’m able to express that is through dental assisting. In my free time, I serve in Seattle Bethany Church in the music department and Sunday school. I also love traveling, baking, and playing sports with my husband.
