My profession has been a gift to me. I so enjoy the patients; some I have watched grow up and now I treat their children. It is a privilege to be able to do that, and a responsibility I do not take lightly. The best reward is returning smiles to the faces of people who now enjoy trips to the dentist.
I love caring for and serving others in a field where there is sometimes fear and anxiety. It is rewarding to help a patient have the healthy smile they deserve. They trust that I have their best interests at heart. That trust has been shown by the numerous referrals we receive from our patients and that is the highest compliment I can receive.
As our patients know, our team is my number-one asset. They maintain the highest professional standards, employ advanced sterilization techniques, and provide the outstanding care and attention each patient deserves. They enjoy what they do and it shows.

Outside the office
Originally from Enumclaw, WA, I have lived in Liberty Lake for over 20 years. Kyle, my husband, is a middle-school teacher here in the valley. We have two grown sons and six grandchildren, all who live close by in Spokane. Our golden retriever, Max, keeps us company at home. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy jogging, running Bloomsday with the grandkids, snow skiing, reading, and spending time with my family.
I consider giving back to the community to be a privilege and a blessing. I am active in our church, donate dental services to Teen Challenge Men's Center and have been on several mission trips to Guatemala as I enjoy serving others both in and out of the office.
