I was born in Fairbanks, Alaska but raised in Anchorage. Even after leaving the state to enjoy the adventures the U.S. Army could supply; I always knew I would eventually return home to Alaska. I have been in the medical field for my entire adult life and I cherish the time I have spent both as a Combat Medic in the Army and Nursing/Management in the civilian community. When I came back to civilian life, I found that I deeply missed the comradery of my brothers and sisters in arms. Although that is something that will stay with me forever, I was very pleased to have found something similar here within the Summit Oral Surgery family. Even though I am a disabled veteran, that came to them fresh out of the service, with a Service dog at my side, they wholeheartedly accepted me and welcomed me in. I would not want to pursue my calling in the medical field anywhere other than right here.
I was born and raised in the Midwest. I moved to Alaska in 2000 and made the Matanuska Susitna Valley my home in 2015. My kids, animals and my spring garden fill my time when I’m not at work. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love working with the public and look forward to seeing you at Summit Oral Surgery!
I was born at Elmendorf AFB hospital (JBER) in Anchorage, Alaska and grew up in the Mat-Su Valley where my family has been living since the early 1950’s. I’ve always known this community is the place I wanted to spend my life. I am a mother of two highly entertaining intelligent teenagers, and 3 four-legged heathens. We enjoy spending time with our very large family, cooking, camping, hiking and riding 4-wheelers. Joining the Summit Family is the chance to continue working in the medical field while learning a new things. Contributing to this community and people’s lives is an important goal to me, my Summit family helps me accomplish this!
Lead Registered Nurse
My experience stretches over 42 years including hospitals, pain clinics, and elderly care. In 2012, Summit Oral Surgery was the next step in my career as their pre and post-op nurse. I feel blessed to work with such a wonderful team of professionals all the way from the front desk to the operating room!

Oral Surgery Assistant
I was born in Boise, ID and raised in Buhl, ID. At a very young age, I knew I wanted to serve the community as a Dental Assistant. My aunt was a Dental Assistant which enable me to strive to be one as well. I finished schooling in 2008 and practiced for a little over a year in Boise,ID. I then moved on to do other opportunities such as working in memory care where I meet many fascinating people. I held many different position in several different career fields. Alaska has always held a mesmerizing appearance that drew my attention. We had the opportunity to move here during our military service and have loved it everyday. Since coming to Alaska, I decided to re-enter the dental field and found my place, a place I could call home away from home at Summit.
