I joined the DeFatta team in July 2017. I love the opportunities and challenges that greet me every day; I learn and grow with every single one. The people that I work with are talented and dedicated. It is a great feeling when you walk into work and know everyone’s name and see their smiles. I am excited for the changes and growth yet to happen and providing excellent care to every person who walks through our doors. Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, camping, canoeing, traveling, and spending time with my husband and kids.
Ellen – Billing Specialist
In January of 2015 I joined the DeFatta ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery team as Practice Administrator. It is my joy to not only assist in the day to day operations of the practice, but to also have the opportunity to interact with patients. I have always enjoyed the personal touch of working in a private practice and I feel so blessed to work with an amazing team of physicians and employees. Some of my favorite moments are when laughter floats down the hallway from patients, staff and physicians. In the summer I love to go camping and hiking with family and friends and in the winter it’s all about game playing and quilting!

Paula – Polysomnographer
Recently I have had the pleasure of joining the DeFatta ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery team as one of their sleep technicians. Helping people improve their quality of sleep has been a career I have enjoyed for over 20 years. The importance of good quality sleep is often underestimated in our busy lives. But if a person snores, is tired during the day, and has blood pressure issues, they should have a conversation with their doctor about being evaluated for a sleep disorder. DeFatta ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery has state of the art equipment, and beautiful sleeping rooms. Come see us for your sleep concerns!
