Registered Dental Hygienist
I attended the Dental Hygiene program at Clark College in Vancouver. After graduating in 2005, I moved north to Bellingham, following my love of the ocean, mountains, trees and the magic of nature.
Later I spent a few years practicing hygiene on the Big Island of Hawaii where I lived in an off-grid community tending farm animal, building housing, and spending weekends with my friends on the beach.
These days I am living in the small town of Toutle after marrying my sweetheart in the summer of 2020. My adventures include hunting for Oregon Grape root, home-improvement projects, gardening, and harvesting dandelions for detox teas.
My favorite aspect of dental hygiene is educating & inspiring patients to understand how whole body wellness can be achieved. Through careful attention to symptoms and dietary modifications, inflammation and other systemic imbalances can be greatly improved and/or eliminated.
A life-long student, I have dedicated much of my off-time to independent study including organ detoxification, herbs & nutrition, creating whole food meals, and botany.
