Brandy describes herself as being very dramatic “in a good way.”

staff-4Ester attended college in Fullerton and began working in the field in 2006, before joining Dr. Zahrowski’s team as an RDA in 2014. As a teenager with braces, she met assistants who were so helpful and kind she knew she wanted to follow in their footsteps.

She loves playing outside with her children and husband. As a child, her favorite sport was soccer and she’s now passing that love to her daughters. She believes in keeping her kids active with activities the whole family can enjoy, including bike rides, playing catch, and penny boarding.

Jeff is an active guy. He calls mountain biking his “meditation,” has snowboarded since he was 3 years old, and drives scale radio controlled trucks. He’s also one of the few people in the world who has fought a kangaroo!! While at a petting zoo in Sydney, Australia, a kangaroo “made a move” on his then girlfriend (now wife) and cut her ear. Like a knight in shining armor, Jeff defended his lady and fought off the kangaroo and 4 of his marsupial friends.
