Kelli Dietz

Office Manager

Kelli is the oil that keeps our office running smoothly. You will see her when you come in and often talk to her when you call the office. She has been with Dr. Nutter since 2000 and is a vital part of our office. Kelli loves the sun and vacations wherever she can get some time in the sun to relax. If she can be in the sun and shopping at the same time, even better! Shopping is Kelli’s #1 hobby! If she could get on a plane for an all expense paid trip, she would likely head to Australia, because, why not?! It just sounds like a fun place to go! Kelli is a true Vancouver native – she has been living here her entire life! The strangest thing Kelli has ever eaten was deep fried frog legs. She also admits to being caught eating spoonfuls of shortening as a kid. 

Robyn Merryman

Front Desk

Robyn is one of the smiling faces that greets you as you come into our office. She has been with Dr. Nutter for 15 years. Robyn enjoys cooking, reading, Netflix binging, and growing plants! Robyn is a self proclaimed home body and prefers a quality staycation to a destination vacation. She is most comfortable at home on her porch with a kitty to pet or a book to read. If you gave Robyn the option to go on an all expenses paid trip, she would likely jet off to Prague or the Mediterranean as she has an affinity to old towns with matching rooftops. Robyn considers herself a native to the PNW, although she was born in Wisconsin, she has lived most of her life in Dallas, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington. Robyn is the mom to 2 adult kids and is married to a high school English teacher. In addition to her human family, Robyn also has 4 cats. 

Rebecca Long


Becca is our zen hygienist with the softest and most calming demeanor. She has been in hygiene since 2003 and has been working with Dr. Nutter since 2006. Like Dr. Nutter, she is a Loma Linda University grad. Becca loves to spend time with her husband and 3 kiddos exploring the PNW. In her down time she enjoys listening to NPR and loud music or sitting down with a good book. Becca’s favorite place to vacation is Blackcomb/Whistler in Canada. Although, she is also very fond of Hayden Lake in Idaho and the San Juan Islands in Washington. Becca is a native PNW resident. Given the choice to go on any vacation without worry of time or funds, Becca would hop in a travel van with her family and spend a year traveling the US and Canada. If you twisted her arm she’d be willing to travel (and eat) her way across Europe and Scandinavia. 

LeAnne Nielson


LeeAnn is one of our fantastic hygienists. She has been a hygienist since completing hygiene school in 1999 and has been with Dr. Nutter since 2000. Hiking, camping, and gardening are a few of LeeAnn’s favorite things to do. She loves vacationing at the beach but really wants to get to Italy to experience the beauty, the history, the people, food, and the language. LeeAnn grew up in Astoria, OR until moving to Stephenson, WA just before high school. At one point LeeAnn tried snails, and she’s not sure that’s a food adventure she would be willing to embark on again. LeeAnn loves dancing and spending time with friends and family. She is a proud mom to three great kids who range in age from 12 to 23. 

Andy is one of our most bubbly hygienists with some great stories to tell! She has spent the entirety of her 13 year career as a hygienist working with Dr. Nutter. She got her bachelor’s degree in Zoology from the University of Washington planning on a career working with animals. Although she found having them instead of working on them was much more fun, her and her husband are the proud owners of 6 dogs, 2 cats, 20 chickens, 6 geese and 2 ducks!! Andy spends most of her free time on her boat and especially loves her annual trip  with her friends and husband in Lake Havasu City, AZ.  Vancouver, or Vantucky (as Andy calls it), has been home for Andy’s entire life. Andy loves to spend time with her family and friends, especially if it’s watching one of her teams (The Huskies and The Seahawks) walk all over the other guys! Her biggest ‘Before 40 Bucket List’ item is to go skydiving! Andy is a risk taker and loves adventure! She even ate a raw fish liver once!

Kimberly Muller


Kimberly is one of the hygienists in our office and has one of the most infectious laughs you’ll hear! She has been a hygienist for the past 19 years and has been with Dr. Nutter for the past 10 years. Kimberly loves snow skiing, riding quads, and is an avid runner. She loves to spend her winter vacations with her family on the slopes. If Kimberly could set off to anyplace in the world she would have to choose between visiting family in Italy while taking in the sights or flying to Greece & Crete to soak up all of the beauty and history. Kimberly is a born and raised Pacific North Westerner. She doesn’t get too crazy when she eats but she has had caviar. At one point in her life, Kimberly had 3 kids under the age of 19 months and she survived it! She’s the proud mom to one singleton and one set of twins.
