Kris was born in Seattle and grew up camping and hiking on the Olympic Peninsula. After raising her son, she started imagining herself living in this outdoor wonderland and began exploring career opportunities. She moved to Port Angeles in 2016, and now has settled in Sequim in a lovely farmhouse with her two dogs and two cats. She has been a mental health therapist for four decades and has worked in community mental health, primary care clinics, and in private practice. She works with people of all ages specializing in the treatment of trauma, eating disorders, grief and loss, and is also a child mental health specialist. She is delighted to have the opportunity to work at the Jamestown Family Health Clinic with its amazing reputation for high standards of care, professionalism, and commitment to the larger community. Outside of work she is usually outside exploring with her dogs, enjoying music at one of the local venues, or sharing a meal with friends.

Lorena was born and raised in Guatemala, Central America. She moved to the U.S in 2003 and she has lived in Sequim for almost 10 years. Lorena is married with two sons ages 17 and 7. She received her master’s degree of social work from Eastern Washington University in 2012. She has been licensed as an independent clinical social worker since 2019. Prior to coming to Jamestown Family Clinic, she worked at Jefferson Healthcare Hospital as a medical social worker for almost 5 years. Although she enjoyed working at the hospital, the commute became too much, so she opted to accept a job in town. Lorena feels fortunate to live in the Pacific Northwest because it gives her the opportunity to explore awesome places with my family.
