Meet Our Team
Kayo is our Office Manager. He keeps things running smoothly by taking care of our overall operations. He also handles in-office engineering/maintenance of the technical equipment.
He has been married to Dr. Skeie for more than 30 years and has been a true “partner” in the practice since retiring from civil engineering when their children were very young. This “Super Dad” loves being around his boys and is always ready to watch a soccer game or hang out with other car enthusiasts. On a sunny day, you may find him on the back roads driving his Shelby Cobra or his Porsche Carrera 4s.
While other staff are in charge of scheduling, billing and insurance, Kayo is always happy to help you with these and other questions or concerns you may have.
