When you visit our office, you may meet with some of our team members, but you may not know just how awesome they are! Our team is integral in helping patients like you get the TMD and sleep apnea therapy they need in order to lead healthier lives. I count on them every day to bring their A game, and they never disappoint. This month, I’d like to highlight Mackenzie Jakola, our New Patient Coordinator and Marketing Manager. You’ve probably seen her around the office, but I’d love for you to get to know her a little better. Read on to learn more.
Mackenzie joined our practice in May of 2015 and has been a great asset to our team. She was born and raised in Kitsap County and currently lives in Silverdale. She went to school to be a preschool teacher and also took marketing courses. Having grown up in an entrepreneurial family, she’s always had an interest in business. The role of New Patient Coordinator and Marketing Manager fits her well because she gets to use her organizational and creative skills. Mackenzie really enjoys being the first person that a new patient meets, she wants them to feel welcome and does a great job at doing so.
If Mackenzie wasn’t working with us, she would be full-time at the business she owns with her husband — a filmography business that shoots video for small business, individuals and weddings.
What does Mackenzie do when she’s not at our office? She enjoys spending time with family and friends. Once a month, she and her husband take time to have a date night, day or weekend. They plan a local trip to the mountains, attend a concert or have a nice dinner in the city. You can also find her cooking and baking and sitting on her porch with a cup of coffee and a good book.
Mackenzie’s advice to patients is, “We love getting to know our patients personally. Let us into your world, and we will let you into ours too! We’ll be seeing each other often, and you’ll become more than just our patient. You’ll become our friend.”
We hope this gives you more insight into Mackenzie and the enthusiasm she has for working with patients like you, as do all of us here at Center for TMJ & Sleep Solutions NW. Until we see you again, have a great day!
