Meet The Staff




 Alison Rutherford, RDH

Alison has been with the practice since March 2007. She and her husband have three children – two daughters and a son (the two youngest kids are a set of twins: both a boy and a girl). She is a fervent fan of Facebook, and is always updating her page with cutest pics of her children!


 Cathy Stump, RDH

Cathy has been with the practice since January 2005. She and her husband have three grown children and two darling grandchildren. She enjoys watching her grandson & grandaughter whenever possible! She also enjoys live theater and doing home projects such as painting … she’s even refinished hardwood floors. She loves to travel, cook, and do yard work.


 Lynda Dunn, Clinical Assistant

Lynda has been with the practice since February 2002. She and her husband, a retired firefighter, have two children and three dogs. She enjoys family vacations where they camp in places like Wyoming and South Dakota. They even take her two mini dachshunds and her mixed-breed dog along!


 Dawn Mullins, Treatment Coordinator

Dawn has been with the practice since April 2006, but as of  May  2014  she moved to Georgia for her husband’s job.  She now is working as an independent contractor remotely Skypeing in everyday to the office! She and her husband got married in one of her favorite places… Kauai, where she loves to scuba dive. She is still the office “cut up” so don’t always take her so seriously…she lets Dr. Paul think that he’s the boss! She is also almost as avid a Packer fan as Dr. Paul… she now has to watch the games on her computer if they are not nationally televised!


 Kayla Rizzo, Scheduling Coordinator

Kayla started with the practice in September 2016. She’s an avid reader of everything “except” autobiographies! She has two dogs, Bear and Izzy, her constant companions. She even takes them to Georgia when she visits her mom. She’s a talented artist who has free-handed many Disney murals for family members…..they are life like!  Every year she looks forward to all of the “end of the year” holidays. She starts decorating for Halloween before October is even here….AND we’ve been arguing that we don’t play Christmas music before December


Lynn (Linda) Palliser, Office Manager

Lynn has been working in the practice since Paul started in June 1990. She and Paul have two children, two miniature dachshunds, and a parrotlette. Lynn loves spending her time in the warm months being in the yard and gardening… you’ve seen how tan she gets! She loves spending family time with her entire extended family. She’s especially close to her sisters, and loves their annual trip to the Covered Bridge Festival every October!
