I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. I love all of our Seattle teams, but I am an avid Seattle Seahawks fan! (#twelfie4life) I have worked in the dental field for over 15 years. I have been a member of Orthodontics Exclusively for over 17 years. I am lucky to work with an amazing team, an outstanding doctor, and patients that always have a smile to share. My biggest joy in life is spending time with my family, friends, and my dog, Cooper. In my free time I enjoy travelling, expressing my creative side and going to Disneyland!

A Random fact I know about Dr. J: He used to have long hair in college!
I have been an orthodontic assistant for Dr. Jue for the past 5 years. I have been in the orthodontic profession since 2003 and have seen the changes in the profession become more positive for patients. I love being able to do something I am passionate about every day, as well as being able to help others gain confidence in their smile. I really enjoy working with such a great doctor and a team that is supportive and caring. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, traveling and spending time with my family.

A Random fact I know about Dr. J: He really likes Ketchup chips from Canada.
I switched careers in March 2022, from working in the veterinary field for eight years, to orthodontics. I graduated from California State University in Hayward, California with a bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management & Tourism. My previous work experience includes law enforcement and firefighting in California. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, backpacking, adventuring the great outdoors with my husband accompanied by our two large dogs, and riding my beach cruiser bike on local trails with friends.
