  • Katie
    Office Manager

    Hi! I’m Katie. I’m one of the Office Managers at Cole Family Dentistry since 2008.

    I enjoy getting to know our patients on a personal level, and helping them as much as I can – especially with tricky things like dental insurance companies.

    CFD: “At age 10, what did you want to be when you grew up?”

    Katie: “I actually wanted to be an actress.  I had a big imagination as a child, and I thought I would move to New York City and be famous.  As I grew older, I realized I’m a small-town girl at heart.  I still love to explore NYC when I get the chance, and that dream still bubbles up from time to time.”

  • Kaleigh
    Patient Coordinator

    Hi there! I’m Kaleigh. I am a Patient Coordinator with Cole Family Dentistry and have been since 2019.

    I have worked in the dental field for 2 years and love it! I’m one of the several smiling faces at the front desk. I enjoy building relationships with our patients as I get to meet them on a first name basis.

    Outside of work I enjoy traveling, being outdoors, and hanging with my 12 year old daughter Brylee. I like to stay busy whether its being involved with my church or catching up with friends. Living for me is never putting things off tomorrow but making the most out of that moment today.

    CFD: “Which Hollywood star would be good to play a story of your life and why?”

    Kaleigh: “The Hollywood star that would be good to play a story of my life would be Blake Lively.  Blake is a mom of girls and rocks at parenting!  I myself have a little girl, and I want to say most days, I rock at understanding her as a friend, but being a mom as number one.  Blake also has a fun and quirky personality that most would say are my best attributes.  Being a mom is the biggest job of my life but also like to have a good time while doing it!”

    CFD: “Tell us 2 things from your bucket list.”

    Kaleigh: “Just 2 things from my bucket list?! This is extremely hard for me.  If I had to choose 2 – first would be to visit all 50 states in the USA and also be young enough to enjoy them.  Second would be a trip to Europe and spend about a month to eat and experience their culture.  Back-packing and not having an agenda would be the ideal way to spend this adventure!”
