Hello, I stated working here at Yelm Dental this year as a sterilization tech. This is my first job in a dental office, and I have been learning new things daily. Everyone has been so nice and has helped me to understand the ins and outs of sterilization.  I am a diehard Hawks fan and if there is a game on, I am watching it. I also like to play video game and disc golf and I am a bit of a soccer enthusiast as well. 

I have been a dental assistant since 1987.  I have lived in the Tacoma area since 1984 and moved to Yelm in 2007.  I joined the Yelm Dental "Tooth Team" in 2008.  I enjoy helping our patients feel comfortable and work hard to make sure that they have a positive experience. 
I enjoy life with my husband Bill and our son Willie.  I also have two grown children, Rudy and Julie, and 4 grandchildren.  I enjoy all the outdoor activities this area has to offer, especially camping and hiking at the beach or mountains. I love to garden and take long bike rides, and on those rainy days you can find me reading and planning my next adventure.

I have been part of the Yelm Dental family since day one, working alongside Dr. Kay. Back then it was just me and Dr. Kay in a two operatory office. My how we have grown.... I continued with the Yelm Dental family after Dr. Smith and Dr. Blackner took over. 

I am married to a great guy for over 40 years and have raised three great kids. We have been part of the Yelm-Rainier community since the early 1970’s by volunteering and participating in various youth and sports programs. I enjoy watching the Mariners, Seahawks, Kraken and WSU Cougars. I also enjoy quilting, gardening, and taking care of my kitties.  

It has been a blessing, honor, and privilege to work so close to home with a great dental family who take pride in caring and providing the greatest dental care. 

VICTORIA - CHAIRSIDE ASSISTANT I started working in the dental field about 6 years ago (2016) and have enjoyed it since. Yelm Dental has been my home for all 6 of those years. I initially started working in the front office for a few months before transitioning to the back office where I started as the sterilization tech. After receiving in-office training and attending Olympia Dental Assisting Program I started working as a dental assistant to help give patients the best dental care I possibly can. I have been with my significant other, David, for 10 years now. We have 3 cats (Moon Pie, Casper, and Trigger) that I absolutely love and adore. In my spare time I enjoy painting, swimming, and spending time with my family and friends.
