Susan Gribbin

susan gribbin

Hello, my name is Susan Gribbin. I started working with Dr. Leinassar in 1983 as a Dental Assistant & gradually moved to the front desk position as an appointment coordinator. I attended school in Knappa, graduating in 1979. I have been married to my husband Mike since 1987 & we have two daughters, Shannon & Alea. We also have five wonderful grandchildren, Aubrey, Blake, Paige, Ava, & Skyler. I enjoy traveling, sewing, crafting & mostly spending time with my husband, daughters, grandchildren & family. I’ve enjoyed working with Dr. Jeff for over 33 years & plan on retiring with him when that day comes. Fondest memories of working with Dr. Jeff are when we kidnapped him on his birthday & took him out for a day of excitement. I look forward to seeing & meeting all of our existing & new patients.

Hello, my name is Keely Hjerleid-Bohannon. I joined the Leinassar Dental Excellence team in July 2016 as Financial Administrator. I was born in Arizona & lived in Astoria from 2nd grade until 9th grade, then graduated from Eau Claire High School in Eau Claire, WI. I returned to Oregon in 2009 to pursue a degree in Mortuary Science at Mt. Hood Community College, graduating in 2001 with a degree in Embalming & Funeral Directing. After graduating, I moved back to Astoria to be closer to my boyfriend, Andy. We have three beautiful children between the two of us, ages 9, 10 & 12. They keep us very busy! In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends & family, camping, being outdoors & running my photography business. I absolutely love being a part of the Leinassar Dental Excellence team!
