I relocated from the Olympia area to complete my degree in dental hygiene at Columbia Basin College. I quickly became fond of the sunny weather and activities this area has to offer, and made it my home away from home. I joined Dr. Turrell Beck’s practice soon after graduation. I now perform dental hygiene therapies for our patients and enjoy focusing on personal oral hygiene routines. I strive to customize every patients experience and maximize the impact of our time together.In my personal life, I enjoy spending time outdoors hiking or on the river. I also make the time to travel with my family.
