Jennifer is an Iowa native and U.S. Navy veteran, who lived in AZ for the last 8 years prior to moving to New Mexico. She became a nurse later in life, after a fulfilling 20-year career as a Chinese linguist. She has been a nurse practitioner for 5 years, having practiced first in Sierra Vista, AZ and then Show Low, AZ prior to relocating to Gallup, NM area in summer of 2023. She is passionate about rural medicine and preventative care, striving to meet patients where they are to achieve mutual healthcare goals.

Jennifer’s faith is very important to her and is an integral part of her life. She also enjoys being outside, reading, quilting, and making things with her hands. She and her husband of nearly 30 years look forward to experiencing all that New Mexico has to offer.
