Office Manager

Keli Mckern

I'm Keli, and I'm delighted to share a glimpse into my life as the Office Manager at Inspire Advanced Dentistry.
Being a lifelong resident of the Colville/Kettle Falls area, my patients are more than just individuals; they're like family. My days are immersed in wonderful conversations and the development of treasured friendships.
Since April 2018, I've proudly served as the office manager at Inspire Advanced Dentistry. My journey with Dr. Fox dates back to 1999, where I started as a sterilization tech, later transitioning to a chairside assistant, and now managing the office. Wearing these varied hats allows me to bring a unique perspective to our dental care team.
Dave and I are the proud parents of two adult children, Connor (Makayla) and Kennedy (Seth). The best part of having children? They give you grandchildren. Dave and I have found immense joy in being grandparents to two absolutely adorable grandkids, Natalie and Branson. We seek out every opportunity and make any excuse to spend time with them.
As empty nesters, my husband Dave and I revel in the freedom to explore the blessings of beautiful northeastern Washington. Our trusty yellow lab, Tilly, and energetic red lab puppy, Tess, often tag along on our adventures.
In addition to our dental pursuits, I enjoy trying to beat Dr. Fox in our fantasy football league... Game on!
I am genuinely excited about being a part of your dental journey at Inspire. Whether you're a long-time patient or new to our practice, my commitment is to make your experience exceptional. Feel free to reach out for any questions or to schedule your next appointment. Let's work together to ensure your healthiest, best smile and make your dental home with us truly special!






Hello there! I'm Ariana, and I'm likely the first friendly voice you hear on the phone and the welcoming face you see when you walk into our office. Creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for all our patients is my mission. I take pride in providing a positive experience by answering your questions, planning and scheduling appointments to suit your convenience.

I joined the Inspire Advanced Dentistry team in 2022, and it's been nothing short of amazing. The doctors and the entire team work seamlessly together, making every individual an integral part of our dental family.

Originally from Guatemala, I made Colville my sweet home in the fall of 2019. Family time is what I treasure the most in life. When I'm not ensuring your dental experience is top-notch, you'll find me exploring new places, indulging in diverse cuisines, staying active with workouts, kayaking, snowboarding, and embracing an overall active lifestyle.

I believe everyone is important here, and I'm thrilled to be part of a team that prioritizes your oral health and overall well-being. Looking forward to meeting you and making your visit with us a positive one!




Hi, I'm Becky, a proud member of the Inspire team since 2022. As the Patient Care Coordinator, I'm here to ensure your visit is not just about dental care but feeling genuinely comfortable.
From scheduling to coordinating treatments and handling administrative details, I've got you covered. Witnessing the transformative impact of a smile inspires me daily, and I'm eager to contribute to positive changes in our patients' lives.
Colville is my hometown, and I thrive on outdoor adventures like hiking and snowboarding. Beyond dentistry, my dedication to wellness drives me to be the healthiest version of myself.
At Inspire, your time is about more than oral health—it's about feeling cared for. Whether you have questions or want to share your latest outdoor escapade, I'm excited to be part of your dental journey, ensuring an amazing experience!

Hello there! With over 33 years of experience in dentistry and 20 years in this office, I'm your Lead Dental Assistant/Treatment Coordinator. My main gig is ensuring you understand your care plan and feel supported every step of the way. Beyond coordinating treatments, I wear a few hats - managing our online world as the social media and website coordinator. I'm passionate about community initiatives, organizing cool events like NFL Super Bowl boards, March Madness NCAA boards, and fundraising for April Autism Awareness Month and the Lance Lehman Memorial Scholarship (which very dear to all of us at IAD).

The best part of my job? Changing lives and boosting self-esteem by creating those beautiful, confident smiles. When I'm not at the office, my family is my top priority – from my husband Tony, kids Brittany, Jami, and Brady, to the six adorable grandkids: Braxton, Michael, Caylee, Cora, Hudson, and Brooks. Let's not forget the fantastic additions – CJ, Richard, and Victoria, the spouses of our wonderful kids.

Outside work and family, you'll catch me traveling, boating, and having a blast with the Kettle Falls Lady Lions. Oh, and did I mention I'm a huge NE Patriots fan? Go Pats! (and yes I still miss Tom Brady) Looking forward to meeting you and making your dental experience a positive one!
