We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I have been at Hillside since 2009 and love being a part of a team that is warm, friendly, and always professional. I started my dental career 2003 when my children started school and have found it to be a great fit for my family and me.
I am a native Oregonian and grew up locally. I have been blessed with three wild and crazy guys: my sons Will Sam and my wonderful husband Cliff. I enjoy all my boys’ activities: football, basketball, and school. As a family, we enjoy spending a lot of time at our family cabin hiking, swimming, rafting, and biking.
I started my career in dental assisting in 1998, after graduating from P.C.C. From working in pediatrics, general, and cosmetic dentistry, I can say I love it all!
I have lived all over the US, but live the Pacific the best (being here the longest). I am married and have two daughters, Leila and Shaida. They keep our family busy with sports and volunteer work I do.
I attended Oregon State University and graduated from Oregon Health Sciences University in 1982 with a B.S. in Dental Hygiene. I have enjoyed working at Hillside Dental Care since 1986! Caring for patients and their specific needs, as well as being a part of their dental team, is a special aspect of my job that I love. I am also lucky to work with an outstanding group of committed individuals who care about the patients and their dental health.
I have two sons, Bradley and Adam, both graduates of colleges in Oregon, so my husband and I are testing out the empty-nest idea with our Yorkie terrier, Lily. In my free time, I like to hike, read, garden, do all kinds of craft projects, and eventually do more traveling!
I started my education in my hometown in Southern Oregon. I finished as a dental hygienist at PCC in 2018. My passion is to fight the stigma of the dental office and make it an enjoyable experience. I’m very thankful to be working in this office with such friendly doctors and staff. I’m an overall enthusiastic person and thoroughly enjoy making sure people’s mouths are taken care of for their overall health
I have a four-year-old boy named Bradley who keeps me on my toes while I am not at work along with my eight-year-old boxer.
I was born and raised in Oregon. I moved to Idaho for college and attended BYU-Idaho were I graduated with an AS in Electrical Engineering. In 2005, I graduated from Idaho State University with a BS in Dental Hygiene. I love getting to know my patients and helping them with their overall health. I look forward to the friendships formed through their regular visits.
My family and I eventually moved back to Oregon ten years ago and have loved living in the Portland area raising my five kids. When I am not at work, I love to Salsa dance, snowboard, run, go on hikes, camp, take beach trips, and any outdoor adventure I can take my kids on.
