I grew up in the Hillsboro area and moved to Tillamook in 2019. I have been a dental assistant since 2013. I went to Concorde Career College where I received my EFDA. I love being able to help people with their dental needs in the community. On the days that I’m not in the office, I like exploring the coast with my boyfriend Anthony and my puppy Lily. We are also total foodies and love trying new places and foods. But our absolute favorite would have to be my mom’s restaurant “Amelia’s” in Hillsboro.
Even though I lived in a lot of states while younger due to my father being in the Air Force, I consider Idaho my home state. The Oregon coast is where my heart is, though. I love the ocean, rivers, lakes, trees, mountains and fresh air.I have attended college in Eastern Oregon and, more recently, here in Tillamook at TBCC. I am still not sure what I want to be when I grow up. I love being creative. My first love is sewing. I have been doing it for more than 40 years. I also love photography, paper-crafting, gardening, baking, refurbishing furniture, beachcombing, kayaking, cycling, hiking, traveling and spending time with family among MANY other things!I have worked many jobs in my life, even owning my own business as a window coverings and interior decorating specialist. Most recently, I worked two seasons as a park ranger assistant for Oregon State Parks, a job I absolutely loved. Ultimately, my five and a half years of dental office experience led me to Green Tree Dental where I love helping people feel valued and cared for.
Ben and I have eight children (two, his and six, hers). They have blessed us with many fantastic significant others and 13 amazing grandchildren who have lived all over the world. Did I mention I love to travel?
