Dental Hygienist

I am excited to be part of the extraordinary team at Southwest Portland Dental. I worked as a dental assistant before graduating from PCC's Registered Dental Hygiene program. I am looking forward to providing our patients with exceptional care in dental hygiene and oral hygiene instruction. I take pride in accomplishing thorough, and comfortable care.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Mike, and our dog, Bodhi. When I'm not in the office, you may run into me walking my dog, playing tennis, or exploring Portland's food scene.

Dental Hygienist

I have been a registered dental hygienist since 2011. I received my education in dental hygiene from West Los Angeles College. I love building long-term relationships with patients and take pride in delivering meticulous dental care with a smile. I am so excited to be a part of the fantastic dental team here at Southwest Portland Dental.

We are so excited to call Oregon our home - me, my husband Jonathan and our daughter Cady are originally from southern California. It was our goal to make our forever home in Portland and we are happy to have achieved that. We also love backpacking! In our spare time, you will find us out on trails soaking up all the nature that the beautiful PNW has to offer.

Front Office Manager

Though I grew up two hours away in tiny Goldendale, WA. I moved to Portland after living and working in Utah as an endodontic assistant helping with two years of root canals. I’ve never lived in Portland but moving here felt like coming home. I love Oregon!

When I’m not at work I enjoy cooking (but not washing dishes), reading in my comfy chair, trying (and failing) to keep my many plants alive, and crocheting while watching scary movies.
