Theme Song: Happy by Pharrell Williams
Favorite Quote: “The Happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts”
Local Inspiration: Hidden passions for gymnastics, teaching, all things outdoors, anything adventurous and exhilarating. Hiking, camping, amusement parks, traveling to fun and exotic places, and family events are just a few of the things I enjoy most.
Fun Fact: I was a competitive gymnast for 14 years prior to becoming a gymnastics coach for 12 years at Alley Oop gymnastics center in Tumwater and have been known to pose as the Tooth Fairy.
Family: Husband Tom and Daughter Thea
Professional: My favorite thing about being part of this amazing dental office is the shared passion for caring for patients in a gentle, comfortable, and compassionate way that still delivers quality dentistry. We all bring out the best in one another with care free, fun, laughter, and compassion for everyone. It feels like being part of a family and getting to work with your best friends all day. Started in 2005 during my internship. Couldn’t imagine working anywhere else.
I am a board member for South Puget Sound Community Colleges Dental Assisting Advisory Board and also do a lot of volunteer work with their EFDA Program. I manage and help organize all community events and drives that Tenino Family Dental hosts.
