Katie Tatum

My name is Katie Tatum and I am so proud to be a part of the Bluewater Chiropractic Team. I have been a chiropractic patient for over 20 years and feel that I have an excellent understanding of how chiropractic stimulates and helps the body to heal at an accelerated rate in a non-invasive and drug-free manner. I feel a responsibility to our community to help inform and educate about the important role that chiropractic plays in achieving true optimal health and wellness. I am excited to be given the opportunity to achieve this while being a part of the team of Bluewater Chiropractic Wellness Center .

I moved to this area from Pensacola in 1995. I have an Associates Degree in business and my professional experience includes working as Executive Assistant to numerous area corporate leaders. I am currently the Insurance and Billing Coordinator for the office as well as a Registered Chiropractic Assistant. My duties are to complete all insurance/patient billing, as well as communicate with insurance companies, lawyers, and patients regarding any aspect of the billing process. I look forward to assisting our patients with any billing/payment concerns and to help work through the challenges of the current insurance industry.

Kristin Turnage

Hi! My name is Kristin Turnage and I am so happy to be a part of the Bluewater Chiropractic team.  My passion for chiropractic health didn’t start until I was looking for alternative ways to become healthy and now I continually search out opportunities to better my life as well as others. I was raised all over the world because my father was in the military. We moved every 4-6 years and by the time I was ready to create my own life’s journey I had lived in 5 different states and on two contents. My husband and I got married in 2011 and lived in North Dakota until 2014 when we moved to Florida. We have two daughters that are the joys of our lives. I am an avid reader and writer and would like to one day become an author.

As I mentioned before, I wasn’t always passionate about health and chiropractic care, but that all changed when we found out our first daughter had a sensory disorder. Without knowing anything about the disorder I started looking online and found out that chiropractic can help children with disorders such as this and we gave it a try. Within two weeks my daughter had changed dramatically, she started to be more outgoing and playful. If it wasn’t for Dr. Lee and her expertise I don’t know what my family would be doing now. I am so thankful to be a part of the Bluewater Chiropractic family and also be a success story for the amazing benefits that chiropractic wellness holds. If you are having doubts please give chiropractic wellness a chance. It changed my family’s life and I’m sure it could change yours. I cannot wait to help you become the happy healthy individual that I know you can be.

Cindy Butcher

Hello, My name is Cindy Butcher. I am so grateful to be working with such an amazing team. It’s a beautiful thing coming to work at Bluewater Chiropractic Wellness Center and feeling like you’re part of a family. You can feel the positive energy as soon as you walk in the door.

I have worked in billing and as a substitute teacher as well as a long term sub for teachers on maternity leave. I am new to chiropractic care and the more I read and learn the more excited I get. I have had a lifelong struggle with chronic back pain. I am looking forward to learning ways to relieve my pain naturally and living a healthier and more fulfilling life.

I am originally from Stephenville Texas but while visiting my sister in Panama City I met the man of my dreams. Doug and I were married October 1996. He was active duty Air Force so we were stationed in Wichita Falls Texas then received orders to Eglin AFB. After serving 23 years active duty my husband retired and we loved the area so much that we made Niceville our forever home. We have 2 sons and 1 daughter. They are grown and have blessed us with 3 beautiful grand daughters and 1 grandson. Having grandchildren is the best thing in the world to me.

I enjoy spending time on our land in DeFuniak Springs. Between riding four wheelers, taking my grandchildren fishing or to the river to cool off I would say it’s my happy place. I also love being on the boat in the bayou fishing with my youngest son. My family is very important to me so spending time together is very special. I have a sister that lives locally and another sister in Texas. I am also an animal lover and have 2 dogs, a golden and a black lab. We also have a tabby cat that my son rescued on my parents land in Texas.

Emma Atkinson

Aloha! I am Emma Atkinson, from Lincoln, Nebraska. I am very excited to be apart of the Bluewater Chiropractic Wellness family. I have been around hospitality services for quite some time, previously I was a flight attendant and most recently a Veterinary Technician in Tennessee. I have lived and moved around often for my husband’s career. We have had the pleasure of living in Hawaii and experiencing first hand the Aloha that the Islands have to offer. Moving to Freeport, Florida we have found another piece of paradise. One in which we decided to no longer rent and buy our first home. I love to be one with the ocean. With that includes many different water activities. We paddle board, surf, dive, and love to be on the sand catching some sun anytime of the year! I was drawn to the Bluewater family because of how much I love all aspects of wellness. My husband broke his back as a teenager, so it was something that struck home in the chiropractic field. I wanted to be involved and have already learned so much. I look forward to expanding my knowledge of chiropractic care and working with you in the future.
