We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I enjoy interacting with and getting to know our patients and their families. It’s a pleasure to watch each person become more outgoing and comfortable with themselves as they get their new smile. I oversee the business aspects of our practice, to ensure our wonderful team members can focus on what’s important: the happiness of our patients! I handle HR, inventory and supply management, accounts payable, and many other things that keep the office running smoothly.
I’m happily married and have three active kids who keep me busy when I’m not at work. Any free time I have is usually spent lost in a good book.
I love taking care of our patients and learning who they are. It’s enjoyable to watch people change along with their smile. By the time treatment is complete, they’re a whole new person who is confident and always smiling. I assist Dr. Gabriel as he cares for patients. I talk with the patient about what we’re doing and act as a second pair of hands. At the end of a visit, I answer questions, provide home care instructions, and check that our patient is smiling.
I have a wonderful husband Jon, daughters Honey and Penelope, and son Keanu. Our family loves the outdoors. We’re heavily involved with archery, bow hunting, and fishing the Columbia River.
I truly love getting to know my patients—encouraging them out of their shells, joking with them, and opening myself to them. I feel that during their time in our care, they become our friends. When their journey in braces ends, I love experiencing their first reactions to the “new” them! I work directly with patients, and prepare them to see Dr. Gabriel. I explain what he’ll be doing, then sit chairside, assisting the doctor and talking with our patient.
In April 2015, I married my best friend. Together, we have two amazingly beautiful and lively children. I feel lucky to be raising my family in the beauty of the Columbia River Gorge.
The friendship that develops between our patients and our staff is truly wonderful to watch. My personal favorite thing to experience is the joy on our patient's faces when they see their before and after photos! As an assistant, I try to anticipate the doctor's and patient's needs as well as be an advocate for our patients. Their understanding and safety is our priority here at Gabriel Orthodontics.
My family and I enjoy keeping ourselves busy with sports and school activities. I have a 7 yr old boy and a 3 yr old girl. My husband, Alex, and I also try to make time to go on hikes and continue our dance lessons.
There truly is nothing better than seeing people leave feeling confident and showing off their beautiful smiles! I am lucky enough to have grown up around our staff and I deeply appreciate my relationships with all of them.
I am currently enrolled in college. When I have free time, I enjoy going on hikes, going to the gym, and watching movies. On the weekends, I love going out with my boyfriend Alex and our dog Kita.
