Annette Thornton

Business Coordinator

Annette worked at Bay Area Labels in San Jose for 24 years before relocating to Half Moon Bay in 2003.  She worked at Cunha Intermediate School as the school Registrar for several years before joining the staff at Dr. Stasun’s office.  She has been married to Brian since 1986 and they have 3 wonderful sons, Taylor (24), Mathew (22) and Ben (19).  All of whom are attending college at the same time!

Annette loves animals (of all kinds) and has fostered several dogs and found them caring fur-ever homes.

She enjoys traveling, cooking, reading, being crafty with things…and most of all…seeing the awesome kids that come into the office!
