Karen

Dental Assistant

I graduated from Western Washington University with my degree in social work but have been a part of Dr. Phil’s team since 1999. I love working with children and educating them about oral home care. I feel like I am helping patients on a daily basis and it is very rewarding when a patient has a good outcome. Our team has become like a second family to me. Dr. Phil respects his staff and encourages us to be the best. I’ve even gone on five dental missions to Central America with him!

I live in Redmond with my husband Eric, and two wonderful kids, Ethan and Kalena. I spend a lot of time volunteering at my kids’ school and walking my black lab, Henry. I feel blessed to have a well-balanced life of working two days a week doing what I love and still spending time with my family.
