Jaimie Littlejohn

Office Administrator

Jaimie has been the Office Administrator at Perlman Center, almost since the practice opened in November of 2002. She is capable of filling in for any role in the office. Probably for the doctor as well...if she had a license! It would be fair to say that the office could not function without her.

 

Jaimie shares "I love our patients and having known many of them for the past 20 years. It's nice being able to help solve their problems."

She enjoys hanging out on the weekends with her pet Chihuahua and oil painting while also functioning as the sole caregiver for her elderly mom and frequent babysitter for a three year old.
