Meet the Team

We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Patient Coordinator

I work as our patient coordinator, so if it has to do with paper or patients, it’s part of my job! I’ve worked with Dr. Jude and his team since 2017, but have been around for a while: I’ve been a dental assistant since 1982! I genuinely enjoy every part of my job, from Dr. Jude to our team to our wonderful patients! I just love working — everything else is gravy!

Speaking of gravy, ask me about cooking! I love to share recipes or cooking ideas. I also love to share photos of my grandbabies and my cat!



Registered Dental Assistant

I have been working the dental field since 1998 and joined Dr. Jude’s team in 2008. My number-one goal is to help people understand the importance of their dental health to ensure their quality of life for a lifetime. I accomplish this by providing education, assisting Dr. Jude during procedures, and listening to the needs and desires of our patients. Providing compassionate, quality care to our patients is the most important part of everything I do.

I have lived in the area for several years, having moved from Federal Way. I love the outdoors and to adventure in the great Pacific Northwest. I have lived in this region all my life and I can still find a new place to explore every weekend. I have a pet, PJ (Pete Junior), who is nearly a dozen years young and full of energy. He makes a great exploration buddy!
