I started in the dental field over a decade ago and have been with K&J since 2020. My favorite aspect of my job is working with the best doctors and staff, knowing as a team we help our patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. I also enjoy the continuous education provided to us to ensure the best patient experience.
I began my career as an RDA and have worked in many fields in dentistry during my 40 year career. It wasn’t until I started processing insurance and working with patients to reach their treatment goals that I found my passion. I am honored and proud to work with Dr. Kwon and Dr. Jabbour, who motivate me daily to strive for excellent patient care.
When I’m not in the office, I love spending time with my two cats watching Netflix but not as much as spending time with my family.
Continuing Care Coordinator
My position as the continuing care coordinator at K&J has been a positive experience. The satisfaction patients leave with showcases the quality of care our doctors and team provide. Dr. Kwon and Dr. Jabbour provide our staff with extensive training and opportunities to learn the latest technology and treatment for our patients. I enjoy learning about our patients' dental needs and being a part of their journey towards total wellness.
When I am not working I enjoy roasting & serving my coffee at my local farmers market. I also enjoy taking small vacations to the East Coast or Central America.
Lead Registered Dental Hygienist, Oral Myofuntional Therapist
My professional career started in 2007 as a Dental Hygienist. I have been fortunate to work for some great dentists that gave me opportunities to learn and grow in my field. Those learning opportunities included multiple courses about airway, mouth breathing, and how it effects over-all heath and development. Which then lead me to start my Myofuncationl Therapy career in 2018.
When I’m not at work, I love outdoor activities such as hiking and camping. I also enjoy traveling, experiencing different cultures and foods.

Registered Dental Assistant
Hi my name is Carolina and I’m a Registered Dental Assistant. I’ve been in the dentistry field for about 4 years. Along the way, I’ve learned how to help my patients with anxiety and build trust. That bond encourages our patients to continue making regular dental visits. I love and care about helping others, not only seeing my patients smile transform but to keep their smile healthy. When I’m not in the office I love to spend time with my daughter and family. I also like to collect shoes and playing tennis.

I’m passionate about helping educating others and value being a part of a team with similar mindset. My love and appreciation of constant learning in dentistry has extended into my personal life. When I’m not at the office, I enjoy cooking, spending time with family, live music, sewing, reading and video games but am always on the hunt to learn to a new skill.
