of Washington, School of Dentistry. Upon graduating from dental school, I completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The southwest is a beautiful area and I recommend traveling there. After completing my residency my husband and I moved here to Yakima, where I have worked in private practice for the last 4yrs. I am a member of the American Dental Association, the Washington State Dental Association, and the Yakima Valley Dental Society. I enjoy volunteering at the Union Gospel Mission Dental Services in Yakima, where many people from the community can have their dental needs met. I also enjoy traveling for dental conferences with colleagues and friends I've met along this journey in dentistry. My husband and I both grew up here in the Yakima Valley. When I am not doing dentistry, I am at home with my three kids, ages 5, 3, and 1 yrs. We enjoy adventuring outside, traveling, serving in our church, and spending time with family.
