She also works on the insurance billing processes and performs general business administrator duties. With us since 1994, Kori has enjoyed getting to know our family of patients and working with our outstanding team.
Kori is known for her love of animals! She is an avid horseman and enjoys spending time with her two horses, whether she’s riding, training, or showing them. When out in the barn, Kori is usually followed by her five dogs, who she loves dearly. She also enjoys boating, skiing, and spending time camping with her husband, Gary, and son, Taylor. Kori's daughter, Leah, graduated from dental assistant school and lives in Marysville, WA and practices in an oral surgery clinic.
