Ashley: Dental Assistant
Position: Dental Assistant
With Bluefish Dental: Since July 2008
How she joined us: "I went to grade school, middle school and high school with
Lorena," said Ashley. Lorena put in a good word for her at Bluefish, and they've been working together ever since.
Favorite thing about working at Bluefish: "I love the relationships with our patients," said Ashley. "I love knowing some of their names when they walk through the door."
Customer service + Dentistry + Beauty: "I worked in customer service for my dad's businesses while growing up but was always interested in the dental profession," said Ashley. She started a dental assisting program with Lorena in 2003, but found that she just wasn't focused. Ashley went to beauty school but determined that dentistry--not cosmetology--was her passion. With new determination, "I went back to the dental assisting program in 2007 and graduated at the top of my class," said Ashley.
Local roots: Ashley was born in Prineville and raised in Prineville and Powell Butte. She is close with her family, and she and her partner Dustin have an adorable toddler, Hunter. "The most important thing to me in life is FAMILY!!!," says Ashley. "There's no one that can make me feel better on a day-to-day basis."
Cats and camping: Ashley has three kittens that she adores. "Spiderman is my cuddler, Batman is enthusiastic and energetic and Skitz is my independent kitty," says Ashley. Camping and outdoor activities are also high on the list of things she likes. "I love camping, swimming, sun bathing with friends, boating, snowmobiling, snowboarding, riding 4-wheelers..." said Ashley. And, of course, spending time with friends and family.
