I started my career in dentistry as a sterilization tech in high school. I knew it was my passion from then on! In 2003, I joined Dr. Travis’ team as a dental assistant. Everything I do here revolves around helping patients feel good about their smiles while being comfortable in the dental chair. Sometimes it’s something as simple as a comforting smile.
At home, my husband and I have three boys, Alex, Bjorn, and Coton. We also have two dogs, Jewel and Joey. We love to travel with our boys and build memories. A lot of our favorite places include the beach or a pool.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Dr. Travis was my own dentist, and the one to extract my wisdom teeth in 1981. During my appointments we talked a lot about the dental profession, and what it would be like to work in dentistry. I went through a dental assisting program in 1983, and decided to go back to dental hygiene school from which I graduated in 1987. I found my way back to this office as an employee in 1997 and I have been working here ever since! I love the variety of people that I meet, and take satisfaction in providing them with a quality service. It is rewarding when patients become engaged in their oral health and want to improve it.
My sweet husband of 30 years, Brett, and I have two grown daughters who have finished college and are pursuing their dreams. They have brought much joy to our lives. I enjoy being artistic, listening to music, and watching live concerts. Last year was my first time to go to the Gorge; I can’t wait to go back!
