On her days off, Ali enjoys restoring worn furniture, hiking, taking cooking classes to enhance her limited cooking skills, skiing, and planning her and her husband's next travel destination where they can scuba dive and slowly explore every corner of the world.
Tracy, Dental Assistant
Tracy was raised in a military family so she developed a gypsy heart pretty early on in life. Growing up, her family was always on the move... traveling and exploring. Before she had even entered high school, she had been to every state except Hawaii. When it was time for her to be on her own, she kept that lifestyle alive. There was even a year that she just traveled the country in her camper, working at campgrounds/state parks. Tracy always had Montana in my heart though, so one day she just packed up all of her belongings in her truck and here she is! She bought a house and is finally planting some roots in this beautiful state. Tracy and her dogs love to explore and camp in all the hidden treasure spots this state has, but don’t ask because she won’t give away her secret spots! When she is not on an adventure, she is at home gardening, reading, or cuddling with her pups.
Alissa, Dental Assistant
Alissa was born and raised in WA state, where she met her husband 25 years ago. Mike joined the Navy shortly after they were married and they moved to VA Beach for 4 years. After having their youngest kiddos and moving back to WA state Alissa went to Dental Assisting school and has been assisting for 14 years now. Moving to Fairfield MT this summer has fulfilled their families life long dreams of living on a little bit of land in the beautiful country.
