Dental Assistants


I have worked for Dr. Kay since the very first day he opened his doors back in 1980. Back then it was just me and him and a two-operatory office.  

I am married to a great guy and together have raised three kids. We have been a part of the Yelm community since the early 1970's by volunteering and participating in various youth and sports programs. I enjoy watching the Mariners, Seahawks, and WSU Cougars. I also enjoy quilting, gardening, and taking care of my animals. 

It is an honor and privilege to work with a great dental family who takes pride in caring and providing the greatest dental care.



I am licensed dental assistant having graduated from Spokane Community College in 1996.  I have been involved in the dental field for over 20 years and find it very rewarding.

I have enjoyed working for Yelm Dental since March 2000.  I enjoy helping people and I take pleasure in the great relationships I have made through the years with the incredible staff and amazing patients at our office.

I have two wonderful children, Chris and Skylar, and we enjoy many outdoor activities together including soccer and camping.


I have been a dental assistant since 1997. I enjoy every day to the fullest and it brings me great pleasure to help people, especially as a I work in the community where I live.  I have lived in this area for the majority of my life and have no plans of ever leaving.

I am married and have one child, Wyatt, who brings me joy and smiles everyday.  As a family we generally spend our leisure time outdoors playing and enjoying all the Pacific Northwest has to offer.  I encourage you to get outside and play!


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 one granddaughter Alyssa.  I enjoy camping, hiking, gardening, playing a the beach or mountains, bike riding, reading, and traveling.
