I was born and raised in Marlette, MI. However, I moved to Washington in 2007 after marrying my high school sweetheart, and we love it here!
I always knew to help people was my passion, and when my college counselor recommended dental assisting, I was excited to get started! I have been with Cramer Dentistry ever since I graduated from South Puget Sound Community College.
The best part of my job is the people I work with. We are like family, and we all care for each other so much. Coming to work is a real joy!
I would love to travel more, and not just around the world, but here in the U.S too.
Born and raised in Raymond, Washington I moved to Olympia for college. After completing my degree, I met my husband Tim. We have two kids Raegan & Bennett and our family dog Grace.
As a little girl, my mom worked as a Dental Assistant and it was always so much fun going to see her work. In 4th grade I knew I wanted to pursue the Dental Field. I love seeing patients achieve the smile they want and I adore the relationship I’ve gained over my last 12 years here. I feel so blessed to work with such an incredible team.
Away from dentistry, I love exploring the outdoors and traveling to new places. My family and friends are where I enjoy spending my time. We love to travel, camp and hike.
I grew up in Woodburn, OR before getting married and moving to Washington State in 2017. I consider myself a compassionate person, and I try to help others in any way I can, whether they’re a patient or a co-worker.
I chose dentistry because of my own experiences. I have worked in various roles in a dental office, and I am certified in multiple areas of dentistry. I’m grateful to be able to use my skills and abilities to guide our patients to optimal oral health and beautiful smiles.
Away from dentistry, I enjoy the outdoors, shopping, and exploring new places, especially when it comes to food! I am family-oriented, so it is always nice to visit them back in Oregon.
I’m married with three children and currently living in Chehalis, WA. I’ve been around dentistry my entire life, so going into the field felt like a completely natural choice for me.
I’m passionate about my patients and how transforming their smiles can change their outlook of life. I love hearing every story and enjoy being part of the amazing conversations in our office.
Outside of work, my husband and I coach soccer. However, my main hobby is to upcycle furniture and other decorating projects.
Originally from Maine, I decided to move to Washington in 2007 and met my husband. Together, we have two beautiful daughters, Rylie and Elowen.
I frequently went to the dentist as a child and was inspired by my dentist’s assistant, Claudette. She was kind and made my trips to the office so easy. I wanted to provide this same level of care to others, so I choose dentistry as my career.
I graduated from South Puget South Community College as an Associate in Applied Science but decided I wanted more. In 2017, I received my Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary license, and as such, I’m the one who will take your impressions (in the most comfortable way possible, of course).
I genuinely enjoy working together with our team and providing patients with outstanding dental care. But my favorite thing is to make my patients feel safe and comfortable during each appointment.
I chose dentistry for many reasons, but the main one is that I enjoy helping people work on becoming healthier, better versions of themselves.
During each appointment, I strive to be helpful in any way my patients need, so they feel comfortable and satisfied with their experience.
I have 3 children that I enjoy playing baseball and basketball with. Most of my time spent outside of work is with them & their adventures.
I was born and raised not too far from Olympia, Wa. And though I’ve lived in a few other parts of the country (Az and Mn), the PNW is my favorite place to be.
I received my Dental Hygiene degree at Pierce College and my Bachelors of Science in Hygiene from Eastern Washington University. Following that, I received my MPA with an Emphasis in Health Care Management from Grand Canyon University. Growing up, my original dream was to sing and dance on Broadway, but being an RN was a close second. Halfway through school I veered towards dental hygiene and it has been a perfect fit. I couldn’t be more grateful to have been steered in that direction.
One of the best parts of my job is partnering with patients and finding personalized ways to create healthy habits that stick. When I can explain the oral-system link, it gives patients an opportunity to see improved overall health. Another wonderful benefit is the diverse knowledge I gain from my patients. Whether age 3 or 93, every one of my patients has something interesting to share that enriches my life. This is an amazing community.
Between children and grandchildren, we also find time to hike, backpack, camp, kayak or paddleboard. The Olympic Peninsula and Puget Sound are our favorite spots for all outdoor activities. And somewhere in there I try to find time to garden, bake, and read a good book.
Originally from Rhode Island, I moved to Washington because of my parents’ careers in the Army’s National Guard. Shortly after graduating from the Pierce College Dental Hygiene program, I married my husband Evan, and we are now parents to our sweet daughter, Harbor.
As a little girl, I was fortunate to have positive dental experiences, which later sparked my passion for the industry. I love caring for people and building meaningful relationships with them, and my career allows me to do just that!
Being an educator and advocate for health is the most vital and enjoyable part of my job. I love working at Cramer Dentistry because of the incredible team and friendly environment. I also believe it is vital to work for dentists who are honest, compassionate, and determined to serve the community with quality care.
Outside of the office, I love being outdoors! I walk with my family every evening and like to go camping in the summertime. I like to travel too, and I would love to go on a cruise and explore different countries. New Zealand and the Caribbean are my top choices!
I grew up in Olympia, WA and attended the Shoreline Community College Dental Hygiene program. I have lived in the Washington area my entire life (except for college). I’m now married with two grown children and five grandchildren.
I always had the aspiration to work in healthcare. I thought most likely as a nurse until I discovered dentistry while in high school. Right away, I fell in love with the field and with what it had to offer. I was mentored by a dental hygienist and knew this was the job for me!
I find real joy in building friendships and relationships with my patients while helping them achieve optimal oral health.
Apart from dentistry, I love taking care of my veggie and flower garden. I like anything outdoors, including boating on the Salish Sea and playing in the sun with my grandkids.
I’ve been immersed in dentistry my whole life. I grew up in the dental office where my mom worked, so it’s part of who I am. I’ve been married for over 30 years to my best friend, and we have two amazing sons.
I’m a positive person and enjoy interacting with all my patients. They are my extended family. I love learning new things, and I’m continually seeking innovative ways to improve the care I provide for every patient.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband is my hero. He is the most fantastic person I know and always willing to help anyone in need.
I went into dentistry because it allowed me to help people improve their oral health and, in turn, their overall health. I also love taking on the role of educator, providing patients with tools to help them better care for themselves.
The greatest things about my job are my patients, getting to know them as individuals, and learning about their interests and hobbies. It doesn’t get any better than that. I feel true joy when I see them achieve goals towards their oral health.
Outside of the office, my husband and I enjoy growing our own food. We recently expanded our garden, and we’re excited to teach our son where food really comes from. I also enjoy sewing, hiking, traveling, and hopefully one day, I’ll go on a hot air balloon ride – I’m pretty afraid of heights so we’ll see!
