Meet the Business Team

April April

Financial Coordinator

Hi! I am April, the financial coordinator here at Eastside Pediatric Dental Group. I came to this office as a dental assistant in 2000, after some time in a family/cosmetic dental practice. I have always loved working with children and thought this would be a great fit for me. I spent my first couple of years here assisting, then worked into a front office position, and in May 2006 came to my current position for the office.

My husband and I were married in 2004, and we now have three children. A girl born in 2006, our son in 2008, and our youngest girl in October 2011. We love to travel, cook, and spend time with friends and family. I am also an avid baseball fan working on attending games in every major league park in the States. So far, I have been to ten!

Jessica Jessica

Business Coordinator/Sedation Coordinator/Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Jessica. I've been a dental assistant since 1998. My career in dentistry started my senior year in high school. I worked after school as a part time assistant at a general practice. I soon realized that adult dentistry was not for me, but working with the kiddos in that office was a right fit! I was very lucky to find an assistant job at a pediatric office and worked there for 8 years before joining Drs. Liu, Lombardi and Quinby in 2006. Working with the patients, doctors and fellow co-workers in this practice has been amazing and I look forward to many more years.

Since joining Eastside Pediatric Dental Group I have expanded on my duties from dental assisting to business coordinator, sedation coordinator, and assisting the financial coordinator. I feel very lucky to have so many opportunities here for the office and taking care of any needs a patient may have. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my daughter who participates in platform diving, choir, cheer and any other activity she can find! She keeps us going; you can find me knitting away at a project on the side lines of her events. When we aren't busy with her activities, I love working on Shutterfly projects, working in my yard, and reading!

Karen Karen

Director of Finance

Hi! My name is Karen and I am the Business Manager at Eastside Pediatric Dental Group. I have worked for this office since 1997 and love it. Not only do I work for EPDG, but my boys have been patients here since 1995. Being an employee, I know the care that the doctors and staff take to stay up to date on the latest information and procedures. I feel confident that they have both received the best dental care around.

I am married and have two boys who keep me very busy. When I’m not working, I am spending time with my family either at one of the boys’ sporting events or musical events (they both sing, play instruments, and act!).

Meagan Meagan

Business Coordinator

Hi, I’m Meagan Hawkes, a business coordinator here at Eastside Pediatric Dental Group. I started part time at the beginning of 2014 helping the office to go chartless. In April of 2014, I came on full time as a business coordinator at the front desk, please say hi when you’re in next!

I am married and we have three kids, two boys and a girl. We live in Renton. When we aren’t running around to all our kids activities, we like to go to our family cabin on a lake near Shelton. We also love to go skiing and enjoy being outdoors!

Nicole Nicole

Business Coordinator

Hi! My name is Nicole, and I am one of the smiling faces that will greet you at the front desk here at Eastside Pediatric Dental Group. I started here as a three year old patient, graduated from the practice at sixteen, and have since interned during summers back from college. After graduating from Azusa Pacific University, it is a pleasure to now work here. I have loved coming here through all my stages of life, and am very excited to be back with such a wonderful group of doctors, team members, and patients!

Along with making a visit to the dentist a fun and positive experience, I have a passion for travel and food. In my spare time, you can find me exploring new restaurants, perusing quaint bookstores, or recipe testing in my home kitchen. I have been to 11 countries and counting, and love to engage new people, cultures, and cuisines.

My husband and I live in Kent and have two amazing girls, 12 years apart in age, and a Labradork named Bella—all keeping me wonderfully busy! I love spending time with my family, and my hobbies include collecting sea glass at the beach and adding to my awesome collection of city mugs from Starbucks!
