Bio Coming Soon!
I am very excited to be a part of All Family Dental Care and look forward to assisting all of our wonderful patients with their financial options. I have over 15 years of experience in the dental field and it’s my goal to make your experience here as pleasing as can be.
I have 2 adult children and 2 beautiful grandbabies. In my time away from the office I love reading, (Sci-Fi is my fave), road trips, time at the beach and hanging out with family and friends.
I have been a member of Dr. Tracy’s team for 3 years now. I received my dental assisting education during my senior year of high school, through Sno-isle technical school. I enjoy educating our patients on the importance of oral health, as well as being a part of their journey to a healthy, bright smile.
Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, and friends.
I have three grown kids Rochelle, Lydia, and Chase. I graduated from Arlington High School in 1985 and still live in Arlington. It is such a nice little town. It is really starting to grow! Not so little anymore. Downtown still has the small-town feel though.
My hobbies are reading, cooking, hiking, walking, puppy sitting Rochelle’s fur baby Winston. I also enjoy the ocean and love spending time on the beaches that we are so blessed to have here in Washington State.
Dentistry has been my passion since I graduated from Puget Sound Institute of Technology in 1987 as a Dental Assistant. I love sharing with others, educating and understand their oral health, and helping them achieve goals for a smile that they can be proud of.
I have been a dental assistant for many years, however; the past seven have been at the front desk as a scheduling/treatment coordinator. I enjoy talking with patients about treatment needs and how we can make them happen. I have actually been so happy with some patients; we both have cried. Happy tears! Because if you are unhappy with your smile or function of your teeth, it is a life-changing transformation!
I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and love the career that I chose and being part of a GREAT TEAM here at All Family Dental Care.
I have lived in Washington state since 1980 and call this home.
I am enjoying my 37th year in dentistry. I have served in several capacities in the dental field including dental assisting, dental laboratory support, community outreach to meet the preventive dental care needs of low-income families, clinical dental hygiene, dental hygiene practice development, as well as introducing/implementing molecular diagnostics for evidence-based care protocols.
My personal mission is to advocate for the health and well-being of myself and others. I incorporate this mission into all aspects of my life. My philosophy is simple. I believe each person I meet is connected to a family. When that person entrusts their care to me, I see myself caring for a family. People are always first and dentistry comes next. It is important to me that my actions always reflect behaviors that earn trust and respect.
When I’m not engaged in dental hygiene practice, I can be found enjoying a good book, cooking, gardening, home renovating, hiking, quilting, petting any dog I see, and spending time with family and friends.
