Referral Specialist, DentistLink
Cherice is ecstatic to be part of Arcora Foundation as a Referral Specialist for DentistLink. In her role, she connects people to dental providers in their area who accept their insurance. She truly enjoys providing the type of assistance that empowers and encourages people to take care of themselves and their families. It is very rewarding to assist people in taking positive steps toward better health, overall wellness and stability—whatever that looks like for them.
Cherice began her career with Guardian in the underwriting department, and then eventually transitioned to work that aligned with her passion—working with people. In addition to her years in group insurance, she is fortunate to have worked many years as a para-educator, as a program specialist for a transitional jobs program contractor, and with DSHS. Before joining the Foundation, she also worked with Delta Dental of Washington as a Customer Service Representative. Cherice holds a Para-Professional Associate of Applied Science degree with an emphasis in special education.
Outside of work, Cherice is a wife and mom to two lovely adult children, ten chickens, and one special needs pup. She also enjoys creating and selling fiber art in her Etsy shop, doing CrossFit, hiking and reading.
