Growing up in Brookings was great!

I received my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene from OHSU School of Dentistry in 1991.

I worked as a temporary around the Portland area, public health in Honolulu, Hawaii, pediatric dentistry in Eugene, but love private practice the most.

On my Days off I work in my garden and have adventures with my son Lucas – a hardworking and gifted young golfer. We like to explore the coast trails and look for chanterelles in the fall and agates in the spring. We are ferocious rock hounds and can’t wait to explore central and Eastern Oregon more!
