Meet the Team
Jen DiMarco - Treatment CoordinatorHello, I am Jen! The majority of my career has been spent in the legal field. My career change has been a great transition, especially because of the patients. I enjoy meeting, and speaking with, each and every one of you. I started working for Dr. James in 2020 and absolutely love being a treatment coordinator and the awesome team I get to work with. As a treatment coordinator, my goal is to provide comfort, and knowledge to ensure your journey into your new smile is a smooth and pleasant one! I had braces as a child, both of my children have had orthodontic treatment, and I am currently in treatment with Invisalign (wear your retainers!). I am fortunate to have been in most of your situations, so can relate (whether you’re a child starting out, a parent seeking treatment for your child, or back for additional treatment). I look forward to you becoming a member of our family!
Nicole Larkin - Patient Manager/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 - Practice AdministratorHey 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.

Most of my professional background is in culinary, office and retail management.

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.
