Sharika was born and raised in Portland, spending most of her formative years growing up on beautiful Mt. Hood. She graduated in 2003 with a BS in Dental Hygiene from Lima Linda University School of Dentistry. After graduating and before moving back to the Pacific NW, she practiced hygiene in Southern California.
When she is not working, Sharika grows specialty cut flowers on her property in the Columbia River Gorge and uses them to design for weddings and events. She also spends time coaching her kids soccer and basketball teams, as well as camping, hiking, paddle boarding, playing volleyball and going on as many outdoor adventures as possible with her two boys and their Australian Shepherd dog Jasper.
Sharika has been with Powell Dental since 2018 and couldn’t imagine a better family to work with.
