Provider Bio

About the Provider

Jessica’s goal in working with women is to listen and learn from each patient’s experience. She grew up in a family of strong women who taught her to support and encourage the women she encounters, empowering them to take charge and be self-advocates for their health and well-being. She enjoys all aspects of prenatal care, as well as preventative care and counseling patients on contraceptive methods. She supports our providers in the office by seeing women for routine prenatal and well-woman care, as well as gynecological issues.

When not at work, Jessica enjoys spending time with two children and fiancé. She also enjoys reading and any outdoor activities, including camping, hiking and snowboarding.
