Jennifer F. – Office Manager

I enjoy having the opportunity to help others achieve life-changing treatment. Those finished, radiant smiles can’t be beaten! Dr. Severt and Dr. Jacox are both amazing people and orthodontists and I love coming to work with this wonderful team every day. I enjoy working as part of a strong team, supporting Dr. Severt and Dr. Jacox as they create beautiful smiles. Everyone here is focused on providing excellent customer service; we support and encourage each other as we help our patients achieve amazing smiles!

I have been with Dr. Severt since she first bought the practice in 2000. In fact, I was the first person she hired after purchasing the practice. I handle the day-to-day operations of the practice, allowing Dr. Severt and Dr. Jacox to focus on patient care. By ensuring we’re organized and prepared, I help the day flow smoothly, so patient visits go off without a hitch. In addition, I also handle the business financial aspects of the office including accounts payables and receivables.

I’m an Alamance County native. My husband Kenny and I have two daughters, Hayley and Kenley, and a son, Kendel. I’m a big family person and enjoy every minute I have with my family. I like watching my girls play softball and volleyball, and my son play football. I also enjoy date nights with my amazing husband. I love going to church with my family and I am honored and humbled to support my husband as he serves as a Deacon of our church. God has richly blessed me with a wonderful family, along with a wonderful job and work-family.
