I have been a part of Dr. Jefferson’s office since 2017, having been trained by one of the very best dentists I know: him! I work alongside Dr. Jefferson: preparing patients for treatment and assisting during procedures, as well as providing healthcare instructions. The one-on-one time I spend with our patients is the best part of my day. I really enjoy getting to know them and helping to give them a positive, supportive dental experience.
I have a Husky and a baby boy who was born in August 2019. Playing soccer has been a huge part of my life for many years. My other hobbies include camping and hiking.
I began my career in 1995 as a dental assistant and took prerequisite classes for hygiene school while working. In 2010, I graduated from Lake Washington Institute of Technology dental hygiene program and shortly thereafter joined Dr. Jefferson’s office. I enjoy getting to know our patients and helping them restore and maintain good oral health through education and effective home care.
I have been married for almost 20 years and have two kids in their teens, Lauren and Evan. My free time is focused on my family!
I started working in the dental field in 1990 and have more than 30 years of experience, the past 14 of which I’ve spent with Dr. Jefferson. I work with patients’ insurance plans and coordinate their treatment plans to help them utilize their benefits and get the best care possible. I love building lasting relationships with our patients.
Most of all, I want to make them smile, and feel comfortable and welcome in our amazing office. When you walk in, don’t be surprised if you hear laughter. The team I work with is full of talented, knowledgeable, caring, and fun-loving people. We all work hard but have fun doing it!
I moved to Washington in 1983 from Montana. My husband Terry and I met in 1985 and have been married for 35 years. We have one daughter, Chantel, who works in law enforcement. We love animals and have an Anatolian Shepherd named Brandi. I love spending time with my husband, family, and friends, as well as working in the yard, going for walks, and decorating my home.
I attended Bates Technical College in 1997 for my dental assisting education and continued my training in 2005 at Palm Beach State College, to earn my AS in dental hygiene. A part of Dr. Jefferson’s team since 2014, I provide preventive treatments and give instruction on appropriate hygiene strategies to maintain good oral health. I am challenged on a daily basis to be the best hygienist possible for my patients, and love seeing them leave an appointment smiling.
I was born and raised here in Kitsap County. My husband Aaron and I stay busy with our two boys, Nathan and Troy. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, working out, and snow and water skiing. Most important to me is spending time with family and friends.
My father and grandfather were dentists, so I got an early start learning about dentistry and worked in the field all through school. I joined Dr. J’s team in 2012 and I have such affection for this office, both coworkers and patients. It feels good to comfort an anxious patient or one in pain and provide them the opportunity to be seen and heard. I enjoy seeing people relax and feel that they are part of our family.
I have been married to Nigel for 25 years and we have two grown sons, Jake and Eli. Our pup Kona just turned 15. We are a rugby family and love to travel, especially to New Zealand where Nigel was born. I enjoy time with my women’s networking group and supporting social justice causes.
