On a daily basis: She worked with a holistic dentist for five years. She switched to the dental practice for Dr. Kathleen Carson (Westlake Dental Arts) in 2013. "My passion In dental hygiene is to empower hygienists to be more independent. I graduated as an RDHAP in May. My practicing method of hygiene is whole body minded and looking at the big picture in treating my patients. There is so much more going on than what we see. We need to be open to noticing the what, why, and how."

About Timbrey: She shares her home with a six-year-old Lhasa Apso named Laya. In her spare time, she seeks out challenges. "I love anything that challenges me to be better physically and mentally. I enjoy rock climbing and paddle boarding. Rock climbing has been my most recent challenge, and that gives me both a mental and physical challenge! I try not to look down, though."
