We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I love getting to know our patients and their families. They become my friends and I love helping my friends change their lives by changing their smiles. I assist Dr. Kellam with bonding and adjustments. I support him and keep our patient updated on what we’re doing. At the end of a procedure, I explain any home care instructions and make sure the patient is happy with the visit.
When not working, I love being outdoors, especially mountain biking, hiking, and backpacking. I also enjoy cooking, baking, and my very unusual cat, Wannabe.
Front Office Coordinator, Santa Fe Office
Amy was originally hired by Dr. Kellam back in 1997 as an assistant. Lucky for her, he has a terrible memory and forgot all about her office pranks so in 2014 he rehired her as the Front Office Coordinator of the Santa Fe, Las Vegas and Espanola offices (Bahahahahaha!!!). She has been called the front office princess, cookie Nazi and a slew of other vaguely descriptive words. If there is something that is probably best left unsaid, you can count on Amy to say it loudly and laugh hysterically afterwards.
Amy is a mother of two beautiful daughters and a fitness boot camp enthusiast. She often turns into a drill sergeant at office team builders, which is both funny and frightening to the staff. She considers it motivational speaking. This is probably a left over side effect from her days as a gymnastics and Parkour coach.
Amy believes the best days should begin with a warm hug, plenty of caffeine and be filled with sarcasm and shenanigans.
Anjelica is the youngest of the Kellam Orthodontic team, AKA the “baby face” of the office. She’s quiet and mild-mannered with a dash of sass when her hair is pulled up tight and her “eyebrows on fleek” everyday. Although she is the quiet one in the practice, she can definitely put on her big girl pants when needed to tell anyone “no” nicely, with a smile on her face.
Whenever she isn’t looking up hair and make-up tutorials on YouTube, she enjoys being around her loving family. Her boyfriend/best friend of 6 years, baby Chihuahua Bella, fatty fat cat Mittens, and her super beast Saint Bernard Diamond. Some hobbies she enjoys is being outdoors (fishing/camping) surrounded by family and friends. She also likes the color pink and has a love for pizza, but not the good kind, definitely the ones at all the wrong places.
Brace yourselves for Chaz! Chaz has been with Team Kellam since 2007. She works in the back as an orthodontic technician and also loves to be the lab rat. Chaz fit right in with the team, she loves her job and meeting new people. She loves making her patients laugh and loves to joke around. Oh yeah, she also loves food. If you want to get on Chaz’s good side, bring her food. (Non-healthy food please.)
In her spare time, Chaz enjoys being a farmer/ranch girl. She also enjoys spending time with her two monkey daughters. Chaz is also an artist, making mosaic inlay jewelry. There is never a dull moment when you chill with Chaz.
Treatment Coordinator, Office Manager
Josie, AKA the office ninja, AKA the task-master is our Treatment Coordinator and Office Manager. She is the reality show queen, whose dream in life is to be a contestant on Big Brother or The Amazing Race or to travel the country in her RV with her husband and their 2 dogs.
Josie’s special talents are falling asleep at the drop of a hat (especially on trips to our satellite offices), making a mean iced coffee and speaking fluent sarcasm. Josie loves music, food, hiking, coffee, working out and shopping, oh and did we mention shopping?
Josie has been at Kellam Orthodontics since 2012. She loves meeting the new patients and their families and seeing the beautiful smiles that are created!
Make sure to keep up with all your sports and Reality TV ladies and gents, because this girl will be ready to talk your ear off about it! Don’t be surprised either if you catch her knowing every word to whatever music we have playing on the radio. Our very own Sporty Spice with a side of loud-mouth please! Aside from her #Selfie-taking, news-feed updating, sports-playing and Netflix-binging at home. Katie loves the outdoors and right along side you will find her trusty sidekick, Akeeah. Unfortunately, she’s not the toy poodle you could fit into one of the many oversized “purses” Katie lugs around with her, or else that Doberman would be wherever Katie went! Even to work, if she was allowed.
Katie has been an orthodontic assistant for almost 8 years now and loves what she does. Not to mention that her ortho dream came from years back when was being treated by Dr. Kellam himself. She saw how much fun the staff was having and thought, hey, I want to do that. She claims to never switch professions, unless of course it’s to become an orthodontist herself.
Front Office Coordinator, Albuquerque Office
When Tammy is not dreaming of being a lioness-haired mermaid who sits under a shady palm tree contemplating how to make the world a better place by making fun cakes, drawing cartoon pictures or creating her latest crafty project, she is the Front Desk Coordinator, Marketing Coordinator and Medicaid Insurance Specialist and all-around jack-of-all-trades for our Albuquerque office.
Tammy has been an orthodontic assistant for over 20 years. She started out working in the lab for Dr. Gary Kellam (her dad), and the rest is history. After Gary Kellam retired, Tammy was asked to come aboard the “crazy train” with her big brother, Dr. Stephen Kellam.
Please play along if you see a “kick me” post-it note stuck to Dr. Kellam’s back. Joking, sarcasm and quick-wit are things that Tammy takes very, very seriously. Tammy will always greet you with a smile and occasionally break out into a funky song and dance. Don’t be alarmed if she bursts out laughing at any moment for apparent reason. Don’t worry, she’s harmless.
Who has the best job, coolest brother and boss of all time? This lucky girl.
