Registered Dental Assistant
I like watching a patient’s confidence increase as treatment progresses and love seeing those big, beautiful smiles the day we take off their braces!
I hold an A.S. degree, am a dental assistant, and have been with this practice since 2005. Working in our clinic, I assist Dr. Christensen in all aspects of patient care, along with educating and encouraging patients to keep up on their home care. We have a great camaraderie at Christensen Family Orthodontics and will make your orthodontic experience enjoyable!
Family keeps me busy outside of work hours. I have a daughter and son in their late teens, and a dog, Bandit. I love to hike, spend time at the lake, garden, and attend any activity or event that my kids are interested in.

My patients are, by far, my most favorite part of my day. Getting to know them individually and hearing about their lives is so much fun!
I have worked in general dentistry and orthodontics since 1997, in California and Nevada, and joined this practice in 2013. I work with Dr. Christensen to treat our patients’ orthodontic needs and offer encouragement and education, too. Dr. Christensen is knowledgeable and incredibly compassionate about our patients and their needs. Those traits are shared by my coworkers: we are all devoted to you and want you to have the best orthodontic experience!
When I’m not in the office I’m usually with my three sons, Ryan, Dominic, and Nicholas, and our family dog, Lilly. We all love to be outside as much as possible, especially at the beach.
I appreciate the direct contact I have with our patients. I really enjoy getting to know each and building a relationship with them: seeing their reactions to their new smiles is the best!
I attended the Kaplan Dental Assisting Program, started in the field in 2013, and joined our team in 2018. In addition to developing financial contracts and handling insurance matters for our patients, I take care of many other front office duties. My coworkers are part of my extended family and our closeness extends to our patients. You will always be cared for like family!
I was born in Fresno and grew up in Clovis. My husband’s name is Sean and I have two “bonus daughters,” Taisie and Teslin. In our free time, my husband and I flip homes in the Central Valley. I enjoy interior design, riding horses and any type of off-road vehicle, and spending time with family. Currently I am learning calligraphy – it’s much more difficult than it looks!
Front Office Coordinator
I enjoy building relationships with patients and their families. It’s amazing to see a patient’s whole personality blossom as they change their smile!
I graduated from San Joaquin Valley College, have a Registered Dental Assistant license, and have been with this practice since 2014. You’ll meet me in our front office, where I schedule appointments, follow patients on recall, and handle various office tasks. At Christensen Family Orthodontics, we care about each other and we care about you!
I have a teenage son, Cameron, and watching him wrestle keeps me busy on weekends. We also have a French bulldog, Brody. I love hanging out with my sisters, including my twin, and my family. I also like trips to the beach and being outdoors.
Registered Dental Assistant, Orthodontic Assistant
I like seeing each patient’s progress during treatment and how they become happier and more confident with a new smile!
I have worked in general dentistry and orthodontics since 2008, joining this practice in 2019. My days are spent in our treatment area, where I assist Dr. Christensen with procedures, provide patient care and encouragement, and do all I can to keep people comfortable and smiling. Everyone here is super nice and understanding: I know you’ll love being part of our family!
When I go home in the evening it’s to spend time with my husband, daughter, and stepson. We have lots of pets, too: a cat, two fish tanks, a snake, and four guinea pigs. Our family loves camping, roller skating, dirt biking, and cruising.
