I am experienced in many aspects of dentistry including, but not limited to,insurance billing and coordination, customized treatment plans, and practice management. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 30 years. We have raised 4 boys in the Port Orchard community. I adore being Grandma to my two beautiful granddaughters. Spending my free time with my family is what I enjoy most.

I grew up in the dental field and developed a passion for dental hygiene. I believe in combining education and clinical experience to provide professional care as a dental hygienist. I am adaptable, hard-working, and compassionate, and build an excellent rapport with patients while providing an essential service specific to their oral care needs. I have volunteered for Smiles for Veterans, dental hygiene instruction for preschoolers. I earned my BA in Biology, at Central Washington University; Ellensburg, WA. I am married and have two dogs. I enjoy traveling to warmer climates and rooting for the Seattle Seahawks. My favorite TV show is The Office, and my favorite books are the Harry Potter series.

I am so grateful to be a part of Dr. Karbassi’s team at Port Orchard Dental Care Center, where I have the opportunity to cultivate lifelong relationships with the patients we serve. I take an enthusiastic approach in continuing to learn about dental care and maintaining a beautiful smile. My time away from the office is spent doing just about anything outdoors; gardening, hiking, biking, triathlon and enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
