Meet the Business Team
Hi! I am April, Financial Coordinator here at Eastside Pediatric Dental Group. I came to this office in 2000, after some time in a family dental practice. Working with children was always something I enjoyed and so I thought this would be a great fit for me. I have worked most positions in the office at some point, holding my current role as insurance and billing guru since 2006.
My husband and I were married in 2004, and now have three children. Weekends are usually spent transporting to some type of sporting event. When there is time we love to travel and be outdoors.
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!
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!).
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!
Hi! My name is Nicole, and I am one of the Business Coordinators here at EPDG. I started here as a three year old patient, interned during summers back from college, and now have returned to work in the front office full time. 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!
In my spare time, you can find me exploring new restaurants, perusing quaint bookstores, or recipe testing in my home kitchen. I also love to travel, and have been to 11 countries and counting!
