Meet the Team at Nampa Smiles
Kathy – Front Office Team Leader
I’ve been with Nampa Smiles since June 2005, and really do enjoy my job. I was hired with no dental experience and have learned so much since I’ve been here! I work a lot with insurance companies, trying to get accurate information so our patients can make an informed decision on their dental care. My main goal is to help any patient who may need financing options in order to complete their needed treatment!
On a more personal note, my husband and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 daughters + their husbands and 8 grandchildren. Truly, I have been blessed!
Jill – Clinic Administrator
I have been a dental assistant since May 2007. I started working at Nampa Smiles as soon as I completed my dental assistant certificate at Apollo College.
I enjoy helping all of our patients with their dental needs and also enjoy our great staff at Nampa Smiles. During my free time, I like to golf with my husband.

I graduated from Apollo College in 2007 and have been working as an assistant at Nampa Smiles ever since. I really enjoy being able to work with people everyday and the staff here is awesome.
I love being outdoors, riding dirt bikes, playing softball or just hanging out with friends and family. I was raised here in Nampa and the best part about growing up in a small city is that I am able to recognize many faces as we see patients from day to day.

A little about me. I was married to my husband July of 2013 and we have two little pups that we love and adore! I love being in the mountains at our cabin and going for adventures.

We enjoy exploring new places and taking pictures of our adventures together! I am an amateur musician in my spare time and I have been writing and recording my own music since I was 14.
I consider myself a perfectionist by nature and dental hygiene is no exception. I strive to give all my patients the attention and compassion they deserve. If you are new to our office, I would like to welcome you and assure you we will do anything we can to make your visit with us as enjoyable as possible…. and if you are a returning patient, welcome back!!!
Rachel – Dental Hygienist
I was born in Belgium while my dad was serving as a veterinarian in the U.S. Army. I moved back to the states with my family when I was 2 ½-years-old and grew up in Southern California in the Mojave Desert. I am the 3rd of 6 kids and has fond memories of spending summer vacations in Eastern Idaho with my mom’s family in Sugar City.
Me and my husband, Jesús, met while attending Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho. We have been married for over 15 years and have 3 beautiful daughters, all a year and a half apart in age. After living in Northern and Southern California for a few years, we moved to Idaho in 2005 and love the Boise area. Jesús enjoys teaching science at East Valley Middle School here in Nampa. All 3 of the preteen/teen “Gómez Girls” are very involved in music, so the house is filled with music from instruments such as piano, violin, cello, clarinet, and electric bass guitar. I love it! One of our favorite mommy-daughter activities is playing the Wii game “Just Dance” together.
As the Nampa Smiles Outreach Coordinator, I do a lot of fun and educational dental health presentations at schools in the community along with attending local health fairs. Whenever possible, I take along the office mascot, Captain Smiles, with me to these outreach events. I am a certified yoga teacher and has taught classes at the Nampa REC center since 2006. I also love to attend Turbo Kick and Zumba classes there. I am a huge cat lover—I don’t know, something about a purring, soft cat on my lap just brings me peace and contentment! I am also a book worm, my favorites are fictional fantasy (ie. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Twilight) and books written in older English (ie. Jane Austen, Charles Dickens). Would this be the place for me to also mention that my favorite types of music are Disco/Funk and Pop?

I met my husband in 2011 and we married shortly after I graduated from NNU in 2015. We have a wonderful (and wild) son and look forward to expanding our family in the future.
