I’ve been Dr. Mueller’s hygienist for over ten years. I’ve helped at several other offices in the area and I can honestly say that I work for Port Orchard's premier dentist. I truly appreciate the way that Dr. Mueller cares for our patients & for the options that he provides them with. Everyone here at our practice is committed to making sure that each one of our patients leaves our office in a better mood than when they arrive & that they have their questions are answered before they walk out of our office. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve Port Orchard.
On a personal note, I found true love waiting for me at carousel 12, right here at SeaTac airport. Eddie and I were married in 2014 in Belize. Believe it or not, one of our patients walked me down the sandy aisle. People ask me all the time, “Why Belize?” Well, we are both certified scuba divers and were wanting to dive in the Caribbean waters as well as experience the culture of Belize. We’ve always loved to travel, I love to cook, he loves to grill, and we adore our four legged fur baby Diesel. He keeps us busy when we are not traveling or working.
In case you’re in the area stop by for one of our fresh chocolate chip cookies—even if you don’t have an appointment.
Growing up in a family of nurses I knew the medical field was for me. I found dentistry because I always was in love with the true beauty of a person's smile. I started working with Dr. Mueller straight out of school, where I have been a registered dental assistant with him for 11 years now. I respect the knowledge, kindness and excellent skill of Dr. Mueller that enables us to provide the best dental care possible. I love our spa care as well, with paraffin hand wax and aromatherapy pillows which help relax our guests. Dr. Mueller and our team have learned the top technology in implants, dentures, sleep apnea, and basic all-around care to ensure the well-being and comfort of our patients.
I have 3 wonderful children Erika, Hayden and Emma and a sweet dog Pandora that keep my life full of entertainment. I love to bake fancy cupcakes on the side for friends and family.
I joined this wonderful team for the 2nd time in October 2015 after first working here 10 years ago. I moved here from Wenatchee when I heard the position was available again! I bring 20+ years of dental experience, with that experience I have a full knowledge of the crazy dental language and I enjoy helping our guests understand their treatment options. I love the fact that Dr. Mueller’s treatment options are based on listening to our patient’s needs and wants.
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am currently working on checking things off my bucket list - skydiving is next!
I started working for Dr. Mueller when I first moved down to Washington from Alaska in 2016. I was drawn to work in this office from the beginning when I noticed how Dr. Mueller treated every patient like family and genuinely cared about the patients’ lives. Dr. Mueller has exemplified a great compassion for patients and employees as well as taught me a great deal by example. His attention detail and his desire to learn new dental techniques and procedures has inspired me to continue to pursue my education and learn what I can do for my patients.
In my free time, my husband and I enjoy being outside whether it be hiking, fishing, or gardening. I also like to spend it with my fur babies; Max and Luna. Max is a 2-year-old pup who is always up for playing fetch while our Luna cat likes to lay on the couch.
I am proud to say that I joined Dr Mueller's team in 2018 as a Dental Assistant. I am excited to go to work everyday knowing that as a team, we always treat our guests as we would our own family. In addition to using the most advanced technology for our wide array of procedures, I really love the relaxed atmosphere and seeing how a smile can change lives. I graduated from Bellingham Technical College with my Certified Dental Assistant Degree in 2015 and have worked in several offices before finding Dr. Mueller. I am so happy to have joined this team!
I moved to Port Orchard to be closer to family. My most favorite thing to do is curl up with a good book after a long hike in the middle of Mother Nature's peace and beauty, and enjoy the tranquility. I love all pets and seeing their pictures so please show me any you might have!
