Office Managers 


 I have lived in Oregon all of my life, moving to Central Oregon in 1997.  That is the year I joined Dr. Rheuben's office, first as a Certified Dental Assistant, then later as Office Coordinator.   I enjoy coming to work each day - not only is our staff great, but we have the best patients!  I truly value the relationships we have created with them through the years.  I feel a great deal of pride knowing that our patients are getting top quality care from every one of our team members. 

When not at work, I can be found riding my horses (I enjoy cattle sorting and barrel racing), or working on home improvement projects with my husband. We also enjoy traveling, kayaking, and hiking. We have two grown children that are my pride and joy, and a plethora of animals.  I absolutely love Central  Oregon, and am so happy to call it home!

 I grew up in Southern California and moved to Central Oregon in 1993.  I have been married to Dr. Rheuben since 2000.  We have five grown children and three grandchildren.

I have worked with Dr. Rheuben in the dental office since 1995, first as an assistant and now as office manager.
When not in the office, I enjoy traveling, gardening and spending time with my family.











Dental Assistants


I am a true daughter of Oregon - I was raised in NE Oregon's pristine Wallowa Valley where I cultivated a love for the outdoors.  I have spent all but six years of my life in Oregon, leaving only to serve in the US Navy as a Dental Technician. After completing my contract in the military, I explored my passion for baking and graduated from Le Cordon Bleau for patisserie and baking in Austin, TX. While spending a season working at the famous Lake Hotel Restaurant in Yellowstone National Park, I rekindled my love for the outdoors, which quickly led me home to study Outdoor Education in Oregon State University's College of Forestry.  After a three-year tenure at the US Department of Interior, I returned to dental assisting and planted my feet at Dr. Rheuben's office in 2016 where I enjoy providing top notch care. 

I spend any and all of my free time baking sweets at home or exploring in the great outdoors with my husband and pup.
