It is a privilege to be a part of such a great profession that allows me to make a positive difference in my patients' lives every day. A great smile is life changing!
I have been so blessed, not only by the friendships I’ve made with my patients, but also by the relationships I’ve built with my wonderful team. As a team, our purpose is to serve our patients with excellence each day, treating our patients as we would want to be treated.
Education and Continuing Education
Following high school, I attended Walla Walla University for my undergraduate study, and then continued on to Loma Linda University, where I graduated in 1995 with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. I was accepted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honorary Dental Society for my academic achievement and received an award from the Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity for attaining the highest academic standing in my dental class. I completed my orthodontic residency at Loma Linda University in 1998 and earned a Master of Science degree in Orthodontics.
It is my goal to provide the best orthodontic care possible in a caring environment. To achieve that goal, I continue my education on a regular basis, both locally and on a national level.

Outside the Office
I grew up in Sedro-Woolley and returned home to open my orthodontic practice, the first orthodontic practice in Sedro-Woolley. I feel very fortunate to live, work and raise my family in such a great place. My husband Joe and I have two children Joshua and Jenna. We’re also blessed to have my grandparents, parents, brother and sister-in-law, and their children nearby.
My time outside the office is dedicated to my family, whether we’re enjoying the outdoors or just hanging out at home. We’re also active members of our church and involved in numerous community activities.
