I like getting to know each of our patients and hearing about their families and interests. I learn so much from them, and appreciate it when they choose to confide in me. My days are spent providing patient care and assisting them during their visits. I sit chairside while Dr. Gundersen performs various dental treatments, ensuring he has everything needed, At the same time, I am concentrating on our patient. I tell them what the doctor is doing, how well everything is going, and offer encouragement if needed.
I’ve been a Certified Dental Assistant since graduating from South Puget Sound Community College in 1990. Each year I take multiple continuing education courses to keep my certification current and because I enjoy learning.
I’ve been happily married for more than 20 years and have three daughters. Away from work, I love spending time with my family and friends. I’m an active volunteer and enjoy camping and bowling, too.
