RN, Office Administrator
Kristin is the wife of Dr. Lee and loves calling Juneau home. She is busy mom and spends most of her time taking care of their four children but loves coming into the office a few days a week to complete administrative duties and help wherever is needed. She was born in Michigan and met Dr. Lee while he was finishing up his undergraduate studies. She followed him to California when he began dental school and she congruently pursued a degree in nursing. She graduated in 2009 from California State University with bachelor’s degree in nursing and is currently a licensed RN. She has worked with many types of medical patients and feels her nursing background overlaps in the dental office in assisting patients with their dental needs and making sure staff and patients are always having a positive experience. She loves learning new skills and attending continuing educations conferences with her husband and, like Dr. Lee, is fluent in Spanish. In her spare time, she enjoys teaching exercise classes at the local gym, traveling to new places, reading, and spending time with friends and family.
