Registered Dental Hygienist
Since I was 7 years old, I knew I wanted to be a dental hygienist. My dad was a dentist in Pendleton, Oregon (where I grew up) for over 42 years. I fell in love with his dental hygienist and she became my mentor through the years, I wanted "to be just like her". I did my pre-dental hygiene college at the University of Oregon in Eugene 1980-1982 (GO DUCKS!) and completed my hygiene college in Portland, OR in 1984. After all these years, I still am excited and blessed, to wake up and go to work in my career.
Central Washington has been my beautiful home for over 22 years. Longer than I have been in one place ever! I was a "west coast dental hygienist gypsy" for many years, and have worked for many dentists in Oregon, California and Washington. None that compares to Dr. John Divis (well, except for my dad)! I am so grateful to a part of the great team at Wenatchee Dental Arts. Dr. Divis is an excellent dentist and wonderful caring person. I really look forward to meeting you soon, as my hygiene patient and taking care of your dental care, needs and wants. I am proud that I was wonderfully trained and commit to each of my patients that I am gentle and caring, and get your hygiene done thoroughly. All of this without judgement or shame, you are welcome here!
In my off time, I enjoy the outdoors, fishing (new to me), traveling, cooking, flower gardening and learning something new every day. I have my SCUBA diving certification and have enjoyed years of passenger riding on the back of a Harley Davidson motorcycle. I have one adult son who lives in the Seattle area, who has been a joy to raise and am so proud of the fine young man he is.
