Meet Our Staff

Front Office Supervisor

Hi! My name is Bliss and I am Cascade Orthodontics’ front office supervisor. With nearly 20 years experience in the dental field, I have found orthodontics to be the most rewarding of my dental career. I am an eternal optimist who “fits my name” well (or so I am told).

In my spare time I enjoy movies, hiking and camping with my family and friends. Happily married over 20 years, we have 2 grown children and a little Shmorkie pup named Lovie! Traveling the world is a dream I will live out one day, but for now I am eager to meet your family and watch the transformation of your smiles as you grow with us at Cascade Orthodontics

Treatment Coordinator & Clinical Assistant

I have been in the orthodontic field since 2001, love being a part of our team at Cascade Orthodontics! I love getting to know each patient, providing encouragement, and easing them through their treatment with a smile. Orthodontics is a very rewarding career and always evolving. I love how a beautiful smile can change one’s life, and I enjoy being able to help enhance a patient’s self-confidence. I love having the opportunity to work closely with an amazing group of people who share the same passion as I do.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my 3 children, extended family and friends. I really enjoy the outdoors, cooking, and am a huge football fan!

Financial Coordinator

I have had the pleasure of working in the dental field for over 24 years, and am enjoying being a part of the Cascade Orthodontics Team! The orthodontic field is by far my favorite, and where my heart belongs. To see a patient’s smile be transformed, as well as their self-esteem, is truly rewarding!

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and especially at the farm where I get to love on the horses. Although many know my "happy place" is amongst the animals, I am filled with joy daily as I watch our patients grow with Cascade!!

Lead Assistant

I have been an orthodontic assistant over 10 years, and am very passionate about orthodontics. Being a part of our patient's orthodontic experience is an exciting job to hold each day as they become part of our Cascade family. When I leave the office, I enjoy going home to my family. We spend our time doing sports, watching movies, and hiking the Great Northwest!

Clinical Assistant

Hello, I have been assisting since 2008. I studied at Seattle Central Community College in a dental assistant program for general dentistry. During this time, I too was in orthodontic treatment. I had an opportunity to do part of my externship in my ortho office. I found that I really enjoyed orthodontics! My heart specialized in helping those who come into the office fearful of not knowing what to expect. I pride myself on my work, and this shows through in the smiles of the patients when they leave the chair.

When I'm not at work, I am a busy mom of two small kids, juggling soccer and school. I have been married almost 18 years! The simple things in life are what I enjoy best, such as taking walks with my dogs Sula and Duke. Combing the beaches for treasures with my kids or spending time with family and friends are also things I treasure.
