My job is to keep the practice running smoothly and efficiently. I work to ensure that our team can focus on delivering personal care to each wonderful patient. I also have the opportunity to oversee the handling of all financial arrangements and insurance billings, to make sure that each family is comfortable with their payment arrangements throughout the course of treatment. Occasionally, you may even see me with the clinical team, providing additional support to Dr. Thornton. I love coming to work every day knowing that I have the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life and work within a genuinely kind and thoughtful team.

I was raised in Eugene and I have been happily married to my high-school sweetheart for more than a 15 years. We love being part of this community because of the special blend of diversity and small town friendliness. I have an intelligent, beautiful high school daughter who lights up our family. Together, we enjoy the outdoors, hiking and camping.
