Karena- Office Manager

I grew up in Fort Shaw, and graduated from Simms High School.  I have been with Hays Dental Group since 2005 and enjoy working with our extremely caring doctors and our friendly staff.  Hays Dental Group is my home away from home.  I have three very active boys who play sports all year round. When we're not traveling for hockey, football, wrestling, and baseball, we enjoy camping, working in the yard and relaxing (when we can).

My goal for my career with Hays Dental Group is to give supreme customer service to all patients I come in contact with. I enjoy working with all of our patients, especially when I have seen some extreme patient transformations over the years, literally frowns turned upside down. That, along with being able to work for extremely caring doctors and a friendly staff is why I love it here!!

I realized Bozeman is where my heart is, so I moved back in 2009. I continue to stay active in volleyball where I met my husband, Clay. We have a spunky little jack Russell/pug mix named Fritz and a baby on the way!

 I enjoy playing basketball, volleyball, spending time with my family and cooking.

 Since I joined the Hays Dental team, I have loved every minute of it. Hays is dedicated to giving the best possible service to our patients with the highest standard of care. It is such a fantastic feeling to be able to say I love what I do and excited to be a part of something so special.
