Practice Manager 

Noelle moved to Central Oregon a few years ago from Oahu where she graduated from the University of Hawaii and had the pleasure of working as a Registered Laboratory Animal Technologist for the John A. Burns School of Medicine. Yes, she misses the beaches and the endless summer, but loves the Central Oregon beautiful mountains, lakes, and abundant opportunities to explore. When she's not at work, you can usually find her out camping, hiking, shed hunting or rock hounding with her two rock hounds: Luke the Lab Mix and Penny the Adventure Chihuahua. Luke and Penny also have a special sister: Digit the polydactyl cat, that prefers the comfort of the couch to a tent.
