Meet the Team


Office Manager

I am one of the first people who will greet you when you come to or call our office. I have worked in the dental industry for more than 15 years and am dedicated to helping each patient feel at ease while receiving treatment. I joined Dr. Alem’s team in 2009. In addition to making sure that our office runs smoothly, I provide dental health information and insurance information to help patients make an informed decision about the best ways to obtain good oral health.

I am a longtime resident of Shoreline. I enjoy spending time with my family and appreciate all the many blessings of children, teens, and my two dogs. My hobbies include hiking and camping in the great outdoors.


Dental Hygienist

I began my dental career with Dr. Alem in 2009 as her dental assistant, and went back to school to earn my degree in dental hygiene. Now I work one-on-one with patients, to provide preventive cleanings and services aimed at maintaining oral health. When I come in to work, I feel like I am seeing my family, not just my coworkers. We are all kind and respectful to each other, and work together as a team for the benefit of our patients.

I currently live in Kirkland and have a very spoiled Black Lab named Bart. I enjoy cooking, shopping, and traveling. Family is very important to me; I am the happiest when I’m around loved ones.


Dental Assistant

I attended dental assisting school while I was in high school, and am now attending Shoreline Community College to become a hygienist. My favorite part of my job is educating our patients on dental hygiene and how to keep their teeth and gums healthy. I love working with my team because we look out for each other. Dr. Alem has taught me so much and has been very helpful throughout my learning process. Working at Alem Family Dental has made me love what I do more than ever!

I tend to be very busy working and being a full-time student, but I also volunteer my free time to a program called Project Girl Mentoring as a mentor to middle-school girls. I am passionate about all I do and I enjoy giving back to others in any way I can.
