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 husband. She also enjoys reading and any outdoor activities, including camping, hiking and snowboarding.

    Very compassionate and professional. I feel as though Jessica really knows me and cares about me. CNA was very nice too, sweet and understanding. (Sorry, I didn't get her name, Christine maybe???). Have not been billed yet, but insurance expert was helpful. The mammography technician was excellent, very kind and thourough. The results from the mammogram were quick and readily available to my practitioner within minutes. Explained everything. Good experience

    There was more conversation about topics other than my health/check-up and that gave the impression that the actual exam and questions about my medications and history were secondary. It seemed very cursory.
