Marketing Coordinator

Shawntel was born and raised in Chico, California where she worked with her father as a funeral director. She graduated from Mortuary school in 2009 and continued to live in Chico and work at her family’s business. Years later she wrote a book titled, Final Rose. This gave Shawntel the opportunity to travel around to different states speaking about her book and her experiences being a woman in the funeral industry. After Shawntel and Dr. Poidmore were married in 2013 she left the funeral business and now works at our office as the liaison between our office and the dental practices that we routinely work with. She ensures that we remain connected by establishing and maintaining communication with the dental offices that refer to us. In her free time she enjoys working out and playing with her dog Bailey.
