(Scheduling Coordinator/ Front Desk Administrator)
I was certified through the University of Alaska, Anchorage’s Dental Assisting Program in 1993. I have had many hours of continuing education since then. I love spending time with my family. In my spare time I enjoy chauffeuring, cooking, cleaning and basically being a mommy extraordinaire.
I have worked for Alaska Center for Dentistry, PC for about 4 years. I am happy to be part of this clinic’s staff. The level of genuine concern for our patients’ well being sets us apart. We truly strive to provide the highest possible standard of care to all. This to me is a huge blessing.

I was born and raised in Alaska, where I graduated from Colony High School in 2003. I started my dental career at Southcentral Foundation in 2003 as a dental assistant. Then in June 2004, I joined the awesome team at Alaska Center for Dentistry, PC. I enjoy snowboarding, snowmachining, camping, fishing or any other outdoor fun with my wonderful husband Eli, and son Zayden. Working here over the past 8 years has been a joyful experience. I love working with our staff and patients who have become like family.
I graduated from Ninilchik High School on the Kenai Peninsula in 2008 and then from the Dental Assisting Program at the University of Alaska Anchorage in May 2012. I enjoy camping, fishing, four-wheeling, snowmachining, and being outdoors with my family. I have a 2 year old son named Kaiden and fiancé named Corey! I have been working at Alaska Center for Dentistry since May 2012 and can without a doubt say I love my job! Working with patients and helping our community with their dental health is a huge passion of mine and I feel at ACD, we strive to meet all our patient’s needs!
I graduated from the University of Alaska, Anchorage with an Associates degree in Applied Sciences: Dental Hygiene. I love to ski, snowmachine, camp, and spending time at my cabin on flat lake. I have been working here at Alaska Center for Dentistry, PC. For about 7 years. Working here is great, and I really enjoy our patients.
I graduated from Eastbrook High School in Indiana, and then completed my dental hygiene degree at Indiana University School of Dentistry in Indianapolis. I have practiced dental hygiene for over 30 years, and find my greatest joy is interacting with my patients as if they were family.
I moved to Alaska in 2011 to be closer to my son and daughter-in-law. My interests include volunteer work, reading, politics and pursuit of arts and crafts.I am blessed to be a part of this genuine and caring dental team, and I look forward to meeting you when you visit our office.

I graduated from Wrangell High School. After graduation I went to Renton Vocational School to study Cosmetology. I moved to Ketchikan and Started dental assisting for a wonderful dentist over 23 years ago. I went to college in Ketchikan and took many business classes, and at the same time became a certified dental assistant with DANB. My husband moved us up here to Palmer to start a new life in the valley and I started management at that time. I have taken many business classes here and have had many hours of continuing education to continue my certifications. With the skills I have learned over the years as a dental assistant I now manage two state of the art dental clinics.
I love all the staff that we have at both clinics and can’t believe how close you can become to each and every patient. What I love about this job is that you get to interact with the patient in such a loving and productive way to really make changes in their over all dental health. My husband Kevin and I have two wonderful children Tara and Kollin and are proud grand parents to Kynleigh Rene. As busy as our life is there’s nothing like spending time with family. I love to go anywhere outside and to see new things.
