Office Staff


Amanda Machan-Neathawk, Scheduling Coordinator

Amanda Machan-Neathawk is our scheduling coordinator – the kind face of Kid’s Creek Therapy that patients and parents most often encounter at the front desk or on the telephone. When you need to schedule an appointment, find out more information about a parent seminar, or register your child for one of our summer camps, clubs, or other special events, Amanda is the one to assist you. Her favorite part of her job is getting to know the Kid’s Creek Therapy families and their stories.

A native of Peachtree Corners with a knack for baking, Amanda now lives just a short distance from home in the Johns Creek area with her family. She and her husband serve as a CARES team for their apartment community, helping to develop relationships among residents and build a sense of community.


Cheryl Puckett, Controller

Cheryl Puckett is our controller, and while she’s an important member of our team, she works remotely from a suburb of Birmingham so it’s unlikely you’ll run into her at our office. Despite the distance, Cheryl is a great fit for Kid’s Creek Therapy due to her passion for special needs children and their families and her prior experience in accounting for a major health insurer. She has worked with us since 2007, but she has been an acquaintance of Melanie McGriff, clinic director, for three decades.

Cheryl is an avid distance runner, as are her two daughters, and her free time is spent on the roads or watching one of her daughters run or her son play whatever sport happens to be in season.
