I like talking with patients and parents about what’s happening in their lives. Hearing about their family, vacations, and accomplishments, is enjoyable. Everyone always has new stories to share! Watching people who’ve become my friends get the beautiful smile they deserve makes me happy. I became part of the Wakham & McMurphy Orthodontics team recently and love what I do. I schedule visits at times that work with patients’ busy lives. I also answer the phones and file charts.
I speak fluent Spanish which has come in handy with our patients who are in need of a translator.
My husband,Seth, and I have two beautiful children that we have so much fun spending time with. We recently relocated from Ohio to Ocean Springs. I enjoy coffee & tacos.
I like getting to know each patient on a personal level, learning about their interests and adventures. We're always sharing jokes and laughing together. My favorite time is the day we remove a patient's braces and they see their beautiful smile for the first time. They can't stop looking in the mirror and grinning! I treasure all of the friendships I've made while helping patients during their visits.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
I am a part-time orthodontic assistant. I enjoy working during my off time from college.
I love watching our patients transform during treatment. Not only does their smile change, but their self-esteem and confidence blossom! Showing a patient their before and after photos, and seeing their delighted amazement, never gets old. I joined the Wakham & McMurphy Orthodontics team this year. I provide chairside assistance, supporting Dr. Wakham and our patients. I also handle some lab work and our 3D printing..
In my free time I enjoy catching up on new movies and TV shows. I also like spending time with my family and friends.
Working in the clinic area with patients is my most favorite spot in the office. I assist patients during visits, preparing them to see the doctor and explaining what will happen. I sit chairside, helping the doctor while making sure our patient is comfortable.
My husband Austin and I were married in 2016. He is a Navy Seabee. We have a fur baby named Theodore. We love outdoor activities.
I love seeing all of the smiling faces in our office. It’s a joy to be part of a team that makes a lasting difference in people’s lives. When you love your smile, you’re so much happier! I started here in 2005 and knew I’d found my professional home. I like talking with patients and parents about what’s happening in their lives. Hearing about their family, vacations, and accomplishments, is enjoyable. Everyone always has new stories to share! Watching people who’ve become my friends get the beautiful smile they deserve makes me happy.
I’ve been married for over 10 years. We have a young daughter and a Chiweenie named ChiChi. I love time with my family and shopping. I’m on the PTO team at my daughter’s school, too.
I enjoy meeting our patients and their families as they begin orthodontics. It’s amazing to see how each patient gains confidence and becomes more outgoing as they move through treatment. The day they see their new smile for the first time is always wonderful and we celebrate with them. I started with Wakham & McMurphy Orthodontics in 2002 and love being part of a great team. I work with patients and parents to set up financial arrangements. I also handle the insurance filings.
I love spending time with my children. Being out on the water is one of my favorite past times along with shopping, of course.
Treatment Coordinator and Clinical Assistant
I never get tired of watching a person’s smile transform and seeing how good it makes them feel! A healthy, confident smile makes a lasting change and we create those smiles every day. In 1997 I started with this practice and am still friends with some of those first patients I met. I take care of new patients, walking them through their initial visits, explaining treatment, and answering questions. I also work directly with patients in our clinic area.
I’m very proud of my two amazing sons, Micah and Brennan. I’m a Disney fanatic! I also love the beach and spending time with my family and my best friend, my toy poodle, Buddy.
I truly enjoy the world of orthodontics. This has been my job since 1982 and I still love seeing those incredible smiles and the happiness on a patient’s face at the end of treatment. Watching each patient become more comfortable with their appearance, and knowing they’re going to have a happier life, is fulfilling. I oversee our practice, working with our team, patients and parents, and handling our payroll and accounts payable.
My husband Cliff and I have been married for more than 30 years. We have one son who’s currently finishing his last year of law school. For a hobby, we have a miniature horse farm.
