Your Assistant Traci treated me so kindly and made my experience great. Both she and the doctor were competent and efficient and my appointment was quick and pleasant. Thanks so much!

Meet the Team

The best part of my job is my patients. I am excited about all of the relationships I have built with so many families here, and I enjoy hearing about their lives, families, and travels.
Providing dental care to all of you is a privilege. I love working with the great patients in this small community and I care about their dental needs, especially prevention.


I have been working at Washougal Family Dental since 2002, and practicing for over 30 years in Clark County.


My husband and I have 3 children and 3 grandchildren.  I love spending time with family, camping, sewing, and cooking.

Washougal Family Dental became my home for hygiene in the beginning of 2016. I graduated from Clark College’s Dental Hygiene program in 2008, then went on to receive my bachelor’s degree from BYU.  I have been practicing as a hygienist ever since. Striving to provide the highest quality patient-centered care is my top priority.


In my spare time I love hiking with my wonderful husband and our two little boys. We flip homes, run marathons, and are actively involved in our church and in the community.

Insurance and Financial Coordinator

Tarra Cochell

I joined Washougal Family Dental in 2013 after earning my bachelor's from Pacific University's dental hygiene program. I take great pride in what I do, and creating an ideal dental experience for our patients is my primary goal. I enjoy getting to see my patients regularly, and hearing about their life and adventures. In addition to being a hygienist, I am taking over managing the insurance and financial aspect of the office.  It is my goal to maximize your insurance coverage while minimizing surprises.


Dr. Cochell and I have been married since 2005, and we had our daughter, Bristol, in 2010. We added our twins, Hudson and Emerson, in 2016. We love spending time outdoors, taking care of our chickens, and watching movies together. We also love to travel, enjoy the beach, and taking roadtrips.


I am really looking forward to meeting everyone!  I am so lucky to be able to start my career in a small town office, and getting to take care of such wonderful patients. See you soon!

Patient Coordinator

Jen Shega

Welcome to Washougal Family Dental! I am usually the first friendly face you see when you come to our office. I am the Patient Coordinator for Dr. Cochell, and I love my job! I grew up in the dental field, as my dad is a dentist in the Seattle area. In addition to working in the front office, I am also a registered dental assistant. Having both chair-side and front office experience enables me to help you understand your treatment needs, and answer most questions you could have.


When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family. We are very active in the local sports community, and I enjoy reading and running marathons when possible. I look forward to seeing you soon!

Dental Assistants

Stacy Shelley

I joined the Washougal Family Dental team in 2013 as a registered dental assistant. I very much enjoy working in the dental industry and take great pride in my job. Our team strives to make your dental experience the best that it can be!


You may also find me on any sports field in the area, as my children are very active in the community. When not spending time with my husband and kids,  I enjoy scrapbooking, home projects, and just relaxing! I hope to see you soon.

Courtney Shelley

I have been a part of the Washougal Family Dental team since 2015, but I was a patient for many years before that. I love being a dental assistant; meeting new people and seeing many familiar faces every day while helping ease any anxiety my patients bring to the office.


A resident of Washougal for most of my life, I am so happy to work in the town I love!  My boyfriend Joey and I have been together since 2013 after meeting at Washougal High School.  I am now a student at Clark College preparing to be a Dental Hygienist.
