Treatment Coordinator | Orthodontic Technician
I have worked in the field of orthodontics since 1990 and with Dr. Phipps for almost 20 years. Guiding our new patients through the process and coordinating all aspects of treatment is my specialty.
The favorite part of my job is communicating with our patients (I love to talk!) and seeing all the awesome smiles!
I’ve lived in Spokane my entire life and think the Northwest is the best! In my spare time I enjoy outdoor activities including gardening, walking and boating. Spending time with family and friends is the best! I recently had the honor of becoming a grandma.
I have been working with Dr. Phipps since 2010. We have been coming to Dr. Phipps office for the past twelve years with both my daughter and son, who are now enjoying their beautiful smiles.
As the financial coordinator I have the pleasure of working with both our wonderful patients and their families. My favorite part of orthodontics is watching the changes in every patient and sharing in their excitement and happiness when they see their new smile for the first time.
When I am away from the practice, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, walking my two dogs, swimming and volunteering in our community.
I have been working for Dr. Phipps for 3 years, I feel we have a great team that will provide a caring and fun experience to our patient’s treatment.
I’m honored to be working alongside Dr.Phipps. He brings many years of experience, has a depth of knowledge and is a great asset to our community!
My husband and I have been married 33 years and have 2 daughters 22 and 24 years old. We enjoy weekends at our cabin on the Pend Oreille River and of course LOVE THOSE ZAGS!!
I am a Spokane native who, in June 2015, successfully completed the Dental Assisting program at Spokane Community College and was afforded the opportunity to join the Phipps Orthodontics team. I couldn’t be more happy and I love coming to the office every day and learning from Dr.Phipps and team.
I look forward to seeing all of our patients and building a special connection with each and every one of them. I am currently in orthodontic treatment as well, so not only am I able to relate to the process, but I get to improve my smile along side my patients!
Outside of the office, I am pursuing a degree in Dental Hygiene! I am looking forward to traveling and love watching hockey (Go Chiefs!) as well as being outdoors!
I joined Dr. Phipps team in 2015 after many years working in orthodontic offices in Austin, Texas and for a now-retired practitioner in Spokane. Though a new member of the team, I’m proud to be part of an office with such a strong reputation for quality, family-oriented service.
Enjoyment comes from patient interactions, and seeing young patients grow and gain confident, beautiful smiles through orthodontics.
On the home front, I’m married to my husband of 30-plus years and have two grown children and three grandchildren. I’m an avid road cyclist and trail runner, and especially enjoy rides and runs along the river in Riverside State Park. I also love to read, usually fiction – often two or three books a month.
