As Dr. Robinson's newest employee, I have been his full time Expanded Functions Dental Assistant/Clinical Manager since 2004. I graduated from Lane Community College
in 2002 and received my E.F.D.A, Radiology Proficiency, Sealant and Soft Reline Certifications. The dental field has taught me the importance of patient communication and being dedicated to your utmost comfort. When I'm not working, my husband and I enjoy camping, gardening, and watching our children play sports.
I got my first start in the dental field as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant back in 1986. Ten years later, I graduated from the hygiene program at Lane Community College and have been working as a Registered Dental Hygienist since then. So far, 19 years and counting have been right here with Dr. Robinson.
I'm passionate about what I do and want my patients to feel good about the comprehensive care my team provides. I'm active in area study clubs and enjoy researching the latest trends in my industry. The best part of my job is when my patients leave our office with healthier gums, clean teeth and a bright smile.
Growing up on a farm in Western Idaho, I'm no stranger to the outdoors. In fact, in my spare time, you can find me gardening, skiing, fishing or simply enjoying the Pacific Northwest. I also enjoy baking, and if you ask my kids, I'd bet an apple pie brownie they'd say I was pretty good at it too!
I graduated from Lane Community College in 2015 with an associates of applied science degree. I started off as a receptionist in 2016, and progressed into management a few years later. Over the course of my career my passion for dentistry and patient education has continued to grow. Outside of work I love to spend time with my family and dogs. We like to camp, fish, hunt and spend most of our time outdoors!
