I was born in Roswell, NM and moved to Washington more than 24 years ago. I am married to Gary and have two children, Jared and Carli. I also have a beautiful grand-daughter.
I believe dentistry chose me as I started as an assistant at only 18 years old. I have worked for general dentists, as a surgical assistant, and for an endodontist too. I now work in the front office and enjoy the faster pace
I have loved it ever since as it fits my nurturing personality and allows me to help people. I enjoy being around people and assisting them to overcome common obstacles, whether it is fear, financial, or otherwise.
Away from the office, I enjoy playing with my granddaughter, Ava and like to go camping and hiking. Most of all, I love being around my family and friends.
I was born in Seattle and absolutely love the Pacific Northwest. I also enjoy being able to help patients smile and feel good about what we did for them.
I chose dentistry because I like being “hands on” and part of a team who helps others be successful. I work hard to earn patient’s trust and will always do my best to make you feel comfortable and relaxed.
I have previously worked as a dental and orthodontics assistant, lab tech, and book keeper. I currently am a Patient Treatment Coordinator at Safe Harbor Smiles so I can assist you with your treatment plan and future appointments.
Outside of the office, I do some landscape designing and can hopefully one day visit Europe.
I am married with two adult children. I grew up in the Port Orchard, WA area.
I have over 12 years experience working on the front desk at various practices before getting my AAAS in Dental Hygiene. It has been more than 10 years since I became a hygienist and I love caring for our patients.
Away from Safe Harbor Smiles, I like to work out, go to concerts, and spend time with friends.
