In 2009, she began working for Dr. Richard Ackermann and Dr. Florence Baralatei in Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine. During her time in this position, she worked the inpatient palliative service and outpatient geriatrics. In 2015, Jennifer joined the Langford Allergy team.

Outside of work, Jennifer devotes most of her time to family and friends. She and her husband Jeff have been married for 13 years and have three children, Chase, Sawyer, and Lynley. Of course, the family wouldn’t be complete without their sweet dogs, Luke and Leia. Jennifer is an avid UGA fan, and does her best to never miss a game (Go Dawgs!). Additionally, the Hames family is very involved in their church, Southside Baptist Church in Warner Robins.

“I am excited to be practicing medicine here and to have an opportunity to give back to the community that has given me so much.”
