Meet the Team
Katie Reichart - Receptionist/Patient CoordinatorHi I’m Katie. When you first walk into our office you will receive a warm greeting from me! I am new to Dr. James's office and I enjoy working in an office environment, especially a happy orthodontic office. I am enjoying learning about the exciting world of teeth. I love welcoming new patients into our office, scheduling appointments and answering any questions. I currently live in South Jersey with my boyfriend and enjoy reading in my free time.
David Blackman - Clinical AssistantMy name is David. My interest in dentistry started in the U.S Army. I started out as an infantry frontline soldier where I transitioned to the Army Dental Assistant Apprentice Program; there my love of dentistry and helping people began. I spent a total of 8 years in the US Army and toured many countries. Throughout my enlistment, I received many medals and ribbons for excellent service. Joining Dr. Amy James’s team has been a great and positive experience with lots of energy! I am glad to be a part of this orthodontic family.
Nicole Larkin - Clinical CoordinatorHi, my name is Nicole! I have been an orthodontic dental assistant since 2013. Creating beautiful, long lasting smiles is a passion of mine. Since joining the team here at Dr. Amy James and Associates, that passion has only grown. We utilize all of the latest technologies and really focus on continuing education. All of our patients here feel more like family and I love that about our practice!
When I am not in the office you can find me at the beach! I grew up down the shore and still have strong roots there. There is nothing better than spending time with family and good friends near the water. I look forward to meeting you in the office!
Jordan Vance - Treatment CoordinatorHey everyone, I'm Jordan! I have been a member of the team since March 2015. I have worked in an Orthodontic office since the age of 16 and I consider the profession one of my greatest passions. I am married to my beautiful wife Jessica. I enjoy traveling, fishing, reading, and pretty much anything that involves being outside. My favorite aspect of orthodontics is seeing the joy and confidence brought to each patient when they finish their treatment. As Treatment Coordinator, my goals are to answer your questions regarding treatment and guide each patient through the treatment process with ease.
Lisa Worden - Patient ManagerHey! My name is Lisa. I’ve been working in orthodontics since 2001 and have always loved it. It really makes me feel good to help people achieve their dream smile. I have known Dr. James since 2005 and have always admired how special she makes each and every patient feel; and that goes for her team also.
In my free time, I’m either spending it enjoying my four beautiful grandchildren, or hanging out with my handsome man and our two silly dogs.
Sarah Olson - Patient ManagerHi! My name is Sarah. I have been in the orthodontic field as an assistant since 2012. I originally started my career in Vista, California working alongside my aunt and grandma at the same orthodontist office that I was treated in as a teen! My favorite part of being an assistant is getting to watch a patient’s journey to a stunning smile!
In my free time, I love teaching Jazzercise, hanging out with friends, and being with my husband and our sweet dog! I am a beach bum and I love hot weather as long as I am near some body of water! I can’t wait to meet you all!
Carole Manzi - Financial CoordinatorHi! I'm Carole. I am the new Financial Coordinator. I have been doing medical billing for 30 years and excited to transfer into the orthodontic world. I look forward to helping everyone with all your insurance and financial questions. When not at the office, I love doing yoga and meditation. Eating healthy and living clean is also a passion of mine. My husband Mike and I enjoy spending time in Florida anytime we can. We have three grown children with beautiful smiles, thanks to Dr. James.
ElizabethHi, I’m Elizabeth, the Practice Administrator, secluded away upstairs in the office. I’ve known Dr. James since the day she was born and love working with this awesome team. Orthodontics became a second career for me, after retiring as a Nursing Supervisor from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
I live with my husband, Robert; 2 rat terriers, Karma and Mikey Rowe; and 22 no-name chickens on our Almosta Farm in Mullica Township. Organic gardening and raising organic chickens and eggs are my passion, hobby, and pleasure, as I try and practice sustainable living and farming.
Kavé - Happiness AdvocateKavé is our office dog. He is a Hungarian hunting dog called a Vizsla. His name means “coffee” in Hungarian. He hardly sheds and will lean on you if you pet him. He is a sniffer of treats and the smell of kitties on your jacket. He loves to run in Crows woods and will bring you a toy or ball to play with if you ask him to.
