I am lucky enough to call the PNW home and grew up on beautiful Fox Island. I graduated from Gig Harbor High School and went right into the dental field. After High School, I attended Clover Park Technical College and earned my Dental Assisting degree. From there I continued right on with dental hygiene, and was accepted into Seattle Central College.
While taking my dental hygiene classes, I was able to work as a dental assistant and continue learning in the field in real time. On the weekends I stayed extra busy working at the local coffee shop in the harbor- Some of my patients may recognize me from my days working as a barista!
After receiving my Dental Hygiene degree, I decided it was time for another adventure and decided to move to Europe. I was able to work as an RDH in Germany for a few years before coming back home stateside. I decided I wasn’t ready to move back to the PNW, so decided to give San Antonio, Texas a try for a few years. It was there where I continued my education into Myofunctional Therapy.
Since 2018 I have been helping patients with Myofunctional therapy needs. I have continued educating myself in the field of airway and Myofunctional therapy and have taken many other courses.
Why did you choose dentistry?
There is something about being able to help others with their health that is the most rewarding feeling.
What’s the best part of your job?
I love being able to help patients get to the root cause of a problem. I am so happy to be in the health field and educate my patients. Through dental, I have been able to volunteer and share my expertise to many deserving populations.
What do you do outside of the office?
Besides being a devoted RDH and Myofunctional therapist, I am a devoted Pacific Northwestern!
I love all things outdoors. During the summer time you can find me hiking, wakeboarding, shopping at the local farmers markets and winter time you will find me on the mountain snowboarding. Although I love where I am from, nothing fullfills my soul more than travel. I love traveling the world, meeting new people, trying new foods and being part of the local culture.
