Katie’s interest in dentistry started at a young age when she started working in her Dad’s dental practice during summers. She received a bachelor’s degree in biology from Central Washington University and then went on to attend hygiene school in Boise, Idaho. After hygiene school, Katie moved to Portland where she began her career in private practice in 2008.

When she’s not working Katie enjoys spending time with her husband and two young children. They can often be found hiking, boating or camping.
