Meet The Staff


Patient Care Coordinator

Hi, my name is Darien and I am your Patient Care Coordinator at Travelle Family Dentistry. I look forward to speaking with you on the phone and meeting you in person. It is my goal to provide you with the best possible experience at our office. My career in dentistry began by obtaining a degree in dental assisting. Combined with over ten years of customer service experience, I feel comfortable in explaining the basics of dental procedures and creating a seamless transition for you between your dental providers and the front desk. In the future, I hope to pursue my dream of becoming a dentist myself!

I joined Travelle Family Dentistry in March of 2019 and have been fortunate to learn all about our talented team and their focus on providing consistent quality care for the benefit of our patients. I look forward to the relationship I will develop with you as our patient and will be there for you every step of the way.  The warm and welcoming culture of this office has made me feel at home and I know it will do the same for you!

I grew up in Eugene, Oregon and still visit my family there when I can. Outside of work I enjoy being active as well as having relaxing quality time with my husband, daughter, and dog.


Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello, I am Hayley, one of the dental hygienists at Travelle Family Dentistry. I began my career as a dental assistant in 2001 and my love for dentistry has increased ever since. I decided to pursue a career in dental hygiene and graduated from the Oregon Institute of Techology in 2013. I have a real passion for dental hygiene and love helping my patients achieve optimum oral health. As your hygienist, I am committed to providing you with exceptional dental care. I strive to achieve excellence, compassion and professionalism through lifelong learning. By improving myself as a clinician and actively learning cutting-edge dental techniques, I am able to provide my patients with the best treatment options available. In this, I can be keenly observant to my patient’s needs, thus being able to educate and encourage them on their path to maintaining a beautiful, healthy smile. I am an active member of the Dental Hygiene Association and volunteer regularly. I look forward to working with you in the future!

In my spare time, I lead an active lifestyle and enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters. I love to travel and am always looking for the next adventure.


Registered Dental Hygienist

Welcome to Travelle Family Dentistry! My name is Karissa and I am excited to be your dental hygienist. I am looking forward to getting to know you while providing you with exceptional and compassionate dental care!  My passion for dentistry began eleven years ago as a certified dental assistant. Having a desire to advance my knowledge and skills, I decided to further my education and graduated with honors from Pima Medical Institute’s dental hygiene program in May of 2019. Patient centered care and making you feel at ease is my goal during your appointment. I truly have your needs in mind and I am eager to share my passion for dentistry with you. I look forward to making you feel at home in our wonderful practice! 

I grew up in Renton and have been married since 2012 to my husband, Travis who is an Electrical Lineman. In my free time I love to garden and can always be found finding new flowers for my house. Travis and I also enjoy hanging out with our large family and spoiling our dog, Benji, who we adopted in 2016. 


Registered Dental Hygienist

Welcome! My name is Casey. I am one of your hygienists at Travelle Family Dentistry. I look forward to meeting you and being your partner in maintaining optimal oral health. I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene from Seattle Central College in 2016. After graduation, I worked in several dental practices including Travelle Family Dentistry. However, at the time, I had an incredible opportunity to pursue one of my greatest passions, traveling. So, in 2017 I made the decision to move to Germany. After spending 2 wonderful years living and practicing dental hygiene in Germany, life has brought me back to the Pacific Northwest.  Fortunately, I was able to return to Travelle Family Dentistry’s extraordinary team full-time. I strive to be supportive and informational during your experience. I’m extremely passionate and focused on improving your oral health through continuous learning and adapting to your specific needs. 

 During my time spent abroad, I was able to grow in my career, travel to a new country every month, and I met the love of my life. After marrying my husband Justin, we decided to move back to WA to be closer to friends and family. We have a cat named Alfred and a new home in Port Orchard. I still travel frequently and enjoy running as well as photography.
