Marilyn - Mercer Island Treatment Coordinator

To know me is to know that I LOVE MY JOB! I love working with kids, families, adults… everyone! Knowing that our team can make such a profound difference in others’ lives is such an inspiration and is intensely fulfilling. Another reason I love my job is because I so strongly believe in Dr. Chorak’s work quality, ethics, unsurpassed service, and his ability to create that amazing signature “Chorak Smile” that sets him apart from the rest.

I have been with the practice since its inception in 2001. For many of those years, I have worked behind the scenes doing the business side of things such as bookkeeping and marketing. In May of 2014, I decided to come aboard as the Treatment Coordinator. I am one of the first to welcome you into our office as I walk you through your initial consultation with Dr. Chorak. You can expect to be greeted warmly and made very comfortable.

I earned my B.A from the University of Washington and my Master’s degree in Teaching from the University of Puget Sound. I am a certified elementary teacher and have taught in schools in both Oregon and Washington. I was also the Center Director of Sylvan Learning Centers in Kentucky and in Oregon for several years.

Dr. Chorak and I have been married since 1996 and we have 2 amazing and wonderful children, Julia and Mason. We also have the world’s greatest dog, Jinger.

Can’t wait to meet you!
